    I've heard the 22nd from multiple sources. Haven't heard anything about the 11th (until you just said it, of course. :))

    Any word on whether or not it'll have the Bluetooth-activated Voice-dialing?

    The button at the bottom reminds me of the Voyager, but only 8 items came up there.

    I presume that the GPS will be corrected. I wonder, if this comes OTA, will there be no problem with GPS? I mean, is this an early version of 2.1?

    I can't imagine them releasing an OS that would break GPS. Google Nav is one of the top reasons to own this phone. Without GPS, Google Nav simply won't work. So, it's my guess that GPS is broken simply because this is a pre-release version of 2.1. I just don't see Google being so stupid as to break GPS in a phone that really needs GPS.

    There's nothing wrong with GPS in the current OS. This thread is about a pre-released version of the NEXT update (v 2.1) that should be coming out in a month or so. The pre-released 2.1 software doesn't have a working GPS (yet). Maybe read a little more carefully next time? :)

    According to the video, GPS stopped and they were on Assisted GPS. Are you running 2.1 as well?
