1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    For people that haven't rooted their phones, or tried the other home replacements, what are you most looking forward to with the 2.1 update?

    Me personally, just the extra pages. The interactive backgrounds will be cool too, but what about the rest of you?

    I think there has already been a thread like this, but I'll give a response. I want to see what they've done in the background. Will scrolling be smother on web sites? What other "hidden" changes will there be? Is there a chance in hell that we will see voice activated calls with bluetooth headsets, and yes, I know about Blue Ant Q1 but I still think this needs to be addressed.

    Flash, google earth. I HOPE the phone has some smoother scrolling. From what I've seen, the way apps are displayed looks pretty cool, no more "drawer".

    Yep, I'd really like to see voice to text for everything. Email, the whole 9 yards. That would be cool too.

    I"m already using all of the apps from 2.1 now, and extra homescreens has never been an issue going back to Android 1.1. I'm only interested in seeing if it performs more efficiently.

    I didn't realize how much better I would like the homescreens as when I had home++ but due it being really laggy and widgets would freeze up often I went back to the default. I wonder if the home screens will roll back to the beginning like home++? but a smoother, more stable 5 screens will be great.

    Speed. The UI is too choppy.
