    Not much... some people just need to reach for things. The data connection issue could have been caused by any number of issues with any number of things (phone, network, drivers) other than the OS. Considering this is Google's first (admittedly failed) attempt at a phone and it's not known just how interactive/helpful HTC was in the design and testing (other than supplying the hardware) the issue has likely not caused by the 2.1 OS but something more device or carrier specific.

    But it does serve as a demonstration as to WHY Moto and VZW are taking their time and testing the release before pushing it OTA.

    I think the thought process is that since the Nexus One is having so many problems with 2.1, they are waiting to get them worked out before releasing it for the Droid. Whether this is really the case or not, who knows...

    My thought is that since the Nexus one is the "GooglePhone" the more bad press they get about it the worse Android looks so they are making it a priority until it doesnt suck.

    If you read around a little, it becomes quite apparent that this was a problem with Tmo's service and the N1. People who were on ATT Edge with the N1 were not affected. It has nothing to do with the OS.

    The bad press they are (rightfully) receiving from the Nexus launch is all the more reason they NEED 2.1 on the Droid and other devices... Damage control.. but it's a moot point, the 2.1 source was given to Moto and VZW weeks ago, once it's fully tested and an update model (in terms of what it includes and how it will be pushed) is accepted by both parties it will be released.

    Hate to say it guys but this is just another 2.1 speculation thread. We have too many of these. Wouldn't be surprised if it gets closed.

I almost ashamed that I own the Droid, but am Glad that I don't have a Nexus 1! The Nexus 1 doesn't even starch my shirts before Ironing them! FAIL!

    I am not going to close this thread on you guys. This is where it belongs, in this section, and if I close this one, another will pop up, so unless someone closes this behind me, I say have all the spec and rumors you all can enjoy here.

    But I can tell you , MY DROID, is so smart, and useful, It does my bills, my taxes, walks the dogs, makes coffee, yeah it can stay. My storm had to go because it kept getting stuck on the damm toliet and using all the paper.

    OK wait a minute. People have 2.1 on their droids all ready. Are they having problems? If not then I see no issues with the OS.
