    Android 2.0


    Improvements are both cosmetic and feature driven with a more sophisticated new look complimented by native Exchange support (including a unified inbox for multiple email accounts), Facebook contacts integration (webOS-style) and the addition of 'Layers' to Google Maps (Wikipedia, Google Latitude, traffic/transit overlays).

    Interestingly, it is also reported that the beginnings of multi-touch finger recognition are starting to appear with two-finger tapping in Maps to zoom out, though gestures still remain absent on Android (unless you have an HTC Hero). The Webkit browser receives attention too with a visual make-over, support for double tapping to zoom in and out and greatly optimised page rendering times.
    Ooooooh, shiny.

    it's getting better. Android is poised to become a great platform if the hardware vendors can keep up.

    I have a 2nd Gen Chocolate that has been dropped in a toilet and is still working. I need to upgrade soon.

    haha, I just realized 2 out of my 4 phones have been submerged and still work.

    hahahaha, damn dude, and I thought it was bad when we took wifey to get her upgrade last night...she had an enV and the vzw dude started shielding his eyes and fake screaming when she showed it to him


    I pushed her to get the Samsung Rogue, but since she sees no need for a data plan she got the enV touch. Still a nice phone.
