Default Coming from iphone, wondering about a certain feature

im getting my nexus one very soon and abandoning my iphone 3g. One nifty feature i found that the iphone has is that when you press the power and home button at the same time a snapshot is taken of what is currently on the screen and saved into my photos. is there anyway that an android phone can do this?

is there also anyway for an android phone to sync with itunes? any app?

Far as I know, there's no way to get a screen shot without "rooting" your phone.

Don't think there's an iTunes sync either.

Welcome to Android.

Just copy your MP3s to a folder on the memory card. Simple and quick.

The screen snapshot sounds like a really neat feature. That would be useful on Android.

I *imagine* that the OP wanted a bit more than that. Yes it's easy to just copy'n'paste onto the phone's SD card, but generally sync'ing with iTunes involves sync'ing playlists and all sorts.

iTunes Agent and DoubleTwist are a couple of syncing options, IIRC. Keep in mind that the Droid won't be able to play any files with DRM.

IIRC you can take a screenshot without root access using USB Debugging mode + the Android SDK on your PC

From MobileCrunch.com:

Download and install the Android SDK.

Enable USB Debugging on the device by going to Settings -> Applications -> Development and checking the proper box.

Plug the Android device into the USB port.

Find the folder containing the SDK you just installed. The location will vary depending on which operating system you’re using, and where you chose to install it. On all platforms, the folder name should begin with “android-sdk-”. For example, the folder for the current build on OS X is “android-sdk-mac_x86-1.0_r1″

Open the tools folder within the Android SDK folder.

Double click the file titled “DDMS”. This stands for Dalvik Debug Monitor Service.

In DDMS, your device should be listed. Highlight it by clicking on it.

In the application’s top menus, go to Device -> Screen capture.

A somewhat more complicated process than holding down two keys on an iPhone :-)
