    Hi, I am new to this thread. I am wondering if anyone knows if and when the Droid will get the OS update 2.1? I am running 2.01 and have issues with call quality and wi-fi connection problems. I am also on my second phone, but the phone issues still exist for me. Maybe 2.1 will fix them??? Thanks you.

    I'm not sure if the update will fix whatever issues your having but hopefully they will. Unfortunately , It is not yet known when the Droid will receive the 2.1 update :)

    OK, this got me thinking earlier today. Why havn't other phones (especially phones without added UI elements ala SenseUI) received 2.0 yet? The one thing I can come up with is some sort of exclusivity agreement between Google, Verizon and Motorola (ie, Droid gets 2.0 exclusivity for x amount of days/months).

    If this turns out to be the case, we may just see the same kind of agreement for Nexus One (or Google Phone), and the rest of us may not see it for a while.

    This is all conjecture and purely speculative, but it's possible. Though if 2.1 comes to Droid with the January update, my hypothesis will be debunked :p

    No, it's just because HTC is busy overlaying their crappy UI and additional mods over 2.1 to have given it to us already. If it weren't for them having to change everything we'd either HAVE 2.0/2.1 by NOW or at least be getting it sooner.

    I agree, sense is a great program. I think a lot of smartphone users (myself included before Hero) associate HTC with garbage due to the poor performance of the WinMo phones. The phones are great products, the WinMo OS sucks. Don't judge a book by its cover.

    Don't judge a book by its cover. That saying doesn't apply to this, since I use the phone. Sense sucks and it hogs system resources.. the phone would be much quicker if it were using plane jane android.

    2.1 looks awesome with the addition voice enabled txt input on everything!


    I didn't hear the whole presentation today though, was there any indication as to when/if the Droid will get 2.1?

    WinMo does not suck, and is still leaps and bounds ahead of both Android and iPhoneOs in terms of functionality. It's just the geeks over at Microsoft didn't make it user friendly, which WinMob 7 is supposed to be, and if WinMob 6.5 is any indicator, then it is going to be a very good competitor. Especially since you can locally sync, with many third party programs as well, PocketOffice comes in handy big time, and little things like easier copy and paste, easier to modify and make your own blah blah.
