    Just curious what everyone says. My answer would be to stream (audio or video) full episodes of the Daily Show/Colbert, but can't seem to do so without proper flash support.

    But there aren't ANY phones that can currently do that without an app.

    True--and I didn't mean to suggest that other phones could accomplish this. This is just the one action I wish my phone, the Eris, could perform. It'd be sweet if Comedy Central came out with a TED-like app that gives you video and audio choices.

    Actually, one that could do both would be sweet.

    Wish my phone was just a little bit louder on ring tones, and a little stronger on the vibrate side, but other then that, I'm in love with this phone! Now that I have the 3500 Mah battery, I think I'll be very happy till they release the Nexus One for Verizon.

    Support searching People (contacts) by any field in the record, not just the name. This is a universal Android issue, but I have not heard any mention that this is something Google will rectify in the near future. It is, however, a complaint that I see on multiple boards.

    enter phone contact by name not the way it is. You have to get nearly the whole name entered before it finds the person

    be able to send text from portrait mode without reducing keyboard

    have a mail main menu that shows all the accounts and which ones have new mail by default view

    I like that pinch zoom works in all programs though. I thought Eris didn't support multitouch?

    it did NOT sync my contacts from google very well. Took me hours of tweaking and reimporting /exporting/ deleting etc to get the fields mapped right. This is not rocket science. Doesn't take a high paid developer to tell simple fields where to go. Why is there no function / app to bring the contacts in a functional manner?
