    From the google Nexus 1 event Q&A:

    Q: Why was it necessary for Google to design the phone? Why couldn’t it just be an HTC phone running the new flavor of Android? And will these new features becoming to Droid?
    A: It’s inaccurate to say Google designed the phone (points to HTC CEO). [Google] is just merchandising it online. Everybody will get 2.1 when it’s open source, within a couple of days.

    Well the droid has a better processor so it should definitely run much better with 2.1. Its not doing too bad with the nexus rom that was already leaked.

    Man, I am starting to get post-purchase dissonance, maybe I should have waited and gotten a Nexus One.

    Oh well

    Looks like yet another version of the htc hero....but sleeker and a lil nicer looking. I like that it has a flash. But I guess they still havent learned that a phone like this needs more ram and memory...duh

    Will I still get the 2.1 ota update even though I rooted my Droid. I am not running the 2.1 Tom either.

    Nahhh, I'll still take my DROID over the Nexus One.. N1 isn't that much faster.

    just to be safe, and with everything happening so fast right now, im going to opt for a droid with a 1-year contract in a few days.. that way im not stuck with a phone that may look like a dinosaur in 2 years

    It will be interesting to see how quickly Droid users actually get the 2.1 OS. The comment quoted indicates a 'couple days,' but does that mean that Verizon will get the OS, and then have to figure out when to distribute it, etc., or that OTA will begin in a few days?

    I am betting that the end of the month (Jan. 22) OTA update that was rumored is probably 2.1. No one should hold their breath for the rest of this week waiting to get an update popup message.

    Go watch videos and read reviews... It's only 5% faster. Just wait for the videos vs. the DROID. I promise you it won't blow the doors off of it.

    It looks sexy as hell, but no physical keyboard is a deal-breaker for me. I showed my girlfriend (might have gotten for her, so I could play with it.) and she doesn't want it, for the same reason. I'll be very happy with getting the update on my DROID though.

    They also said we'd be getting future updates too as long as the hardware works for it! (which it should) So that's great news too! :)

    I agree however the 2.1 ROM that people are running now is the nexus rom, it would be better (i would imagine) for developers to port from the 2.1 rom as oppose to the nexus rom. But as for a release from Verizon i wouldnt count on it being so soon.

    Yes - the good thing about the Droid hardware is that it is versatile, and it's capabilities should continue to be sufficient for some time to come. I don't see Android suddenly taking a giant leap forward from where they are now within the next year.

    I was going to say the same thing....its not significantly faster as seen from the videos.

    Can't wait to get the phone and test it against the Moto Droid and Eris.

    Eris is due to have 2.1 sooner than Moto Droid

    My understanding is that you dont get an update when u root, but dont worry you will still be able to update....just not OTA
