    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.

    "Flash! ah ah Savior of the Universe" *cue air guitar*

    That and having the stock home with five screens. The new launcher, and gallery look great too!
