    I don't understand how understand became two separate words. Would it kill people to type complete sentences? Look, I know 3rd grade grammar is tough, but come on people!

    these forums would be so much better if people would just help other people out, chat, and talk about this great phone instead of always being negative...

    I think it has to do with the fact that 2.1-2.2 is just speed optimizations and under the hood inprovements. 3.0 will have a totally revamped UI.

    That's how software updates are valued. 2.xx is a FULL version down from 3.xx. If the update is only an upgrade here or there, it will be in the decimals. 2.0 --- 2.1 --- 2.2. If the update is even smaller than that, like a small fix in spelling or color, it will be another decimal. 2.1.0 --- 2.1.1 --- 2.1.2 --- etc. So 2.1 to 2.2 is an update, but not as drastic as a FULL update, 2.2 to 3.0.

    Much like mac OS.
    Mac OS 9 to Mac OS 10 was a full update. Then 10.1 --- 10.2 --- 10.2.1 --- 10.2.2 --- etc.

    Hope that wasn't too confusing.

    It's "You're" (a contraction of "You are"), not "Your."

    You're welcome :)

    Well, I learned alot from Brent Pierce, but as far as the rest of this thread goes, it is a waste of everyone's time and effort. Now, let's see, did I misspell any words? Is my punctuation perfect?...........Is this what is important here?

    There are a few of them tarts roaming around here, as in pretty much all forums. No matter its not worth getting bent over their stupid comments. Pity the guy who has nothing better to do in life than spell and grammer check, along with mini-me moderating.

    Android 3.0 is a new version.

    the decimals X.1, X.2, etc, are just updates to the current version. Updates can include new functionality, patches, etc.

    Android 3.0 should bring about major changes to the OS.

  19. OP, it seems as though the answer to your question has been provided much more accurately than I probably could, so I don't have a whole lot more to offer other than another analogy. Think of the production run of your typical car. When they update the list of standard options or features from year to year, that is like going from 2.1 to 2.2. When they do a major overhaul and the body-style changes significantly, that is akin to moving from 2.2 to 3.0. The Corvette is a good example, 9 years of continually improving the C5 (i.e. 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, etc.) before coming out with the C6 in 2004 (3.0).

    It may be annoying to you to see people correcting grammar and spelling, but those sorts of errors are equally annoying to those of us that appreciate a reasonable grasp of the English language and an ability to use it in the context of written communication. You might not find some of the responses tactful, but, frankly, I think that pointing out spelling errors and grammatical mistakes is, in some small way, a form of "helping out". On the internet, really the only shred of information anyone has to size you up is the way in which you communicate via the written word. Egregious errors in spelling and grammar don't really paint you in a very good light. It could be just enough to push certain individuals away from engaging in any sort of two-way communication with such users. I know I am often drawn more towards one's lack of an ability to construct a cohesive thought than I am the message or query he/she is trying to convey. The way that chat rooms, message boards, and text messages have slaughtered the way in which we write really is quite disappointing. I'm not saying that every post be proofread as though it were a grad student's thesis, but some of these spelling errors and misuse/lack of punctuation are downright appalling.

    Before you try and pull the "well just don't say anything" card, remember, you had that option too in response to 'expletiveinserted's response.

    Well, then I feel sorry for you, and those people you describe that are like you. People come from different places, and different walks of life, and learn at different rates, and some of us that are extremely intelligent just make simple mistakes. There is more to life than spelling and grammer. Those things amount to squat when you look at what is really important.
    Try to consider peoples' hearts, and feelings, and then if you can't contribute something worthwhile to a discussion without hurting their feelings, maybe you should not contribute anything at all.
    Now, back to phone discussions.

    Frankly, I dont understand why, I mean whats the point? Why should you (in general) or anyone else care to the extent that they would point out such a simplistic mistake. What purpose does it serve except to irritate and/or put someone down? Anyone who would say such a thing in person to someone they have never met would generally be considered lacking in manners.

    Unfortunatly some people sitting behind keyboards forget that, or just blatantly disregard social etiquette for chits and giggles.

    Its not a "just dont say anything card", its a "dont be a prick" card. It seems that some people get a kick out of being able to point out the obvious, missing the whole point of the forum.

    Honestly , it's just my opinion, anyone who actually gets annoyed by minor spelling and/or grammar on a forum enough to complain about it really should re-evaluate whats important and how helpful they really are to the forum. We've all seen run-on paragraphs, devoid of punctuation, all caps, etc. that are a virtual nightmare to read. This was not the case here.

    And as far as the above comment, those that are petty enough and act like ....s are deserving of the flack they receive.
