    That is a kewl feature, I went to the Market and downloaded an app called BUBBLE.

    It is a leveling bubble, so sweet.

    The G1 has the accelerometer just like the iPhone. But, there isn't many apps that support it yet.

    I heard users didn't like it in testing, so automatic rotating was removed...

    This is ridiculous and annoying in some apps. At least give us the option to turn it on. The fact that you have to open the keyboard to view websites in landscape mode is REALLY annoying.

    The web browser has an option to set the orientation manually. Turn that on, and you can browse in landscape regardless of whether the phone is open.

    if any one wants to see it let me know and ill send you the link of the vid it does it with, you have to go through youtube mobile though, and for some reason i cant get it to rotate with any other videos, maybe its this video is in a different format or something.

    This makes more sense on the I-phone than it does on the G1. It rotating when the keyboard is opened up works fine with me. That's the way I'm holding the phone anyways when I'm browsing and about to type.

    Where can I find this option to allow landscape viewing in the browser without the keyboard open... I've looked everywhere?

    While in browser hit MENU>MORE>FLIP ORIENTATION

    It doesn't turn on the accelerometer in the browser (though it should), it just defaults the browser to either landscape or portrait and it won't change again unless you manually go through the menu and switch it again. Hope that helped.

    This is proof that Google has crippled the phone once more.
    Windows Mobile gives us the ability to use the accelerometer, on all programs, or you can choose which ones to use it on.

    Come on Google get with the current technology.
