    Message compose redesign with ability to attach files, bigger "Tap to compose" area, multi-language support for key-input...

    BTW. multi-language support is coming with dictionaries which is really cool.

    And the manage application section is very different now. It can sort apps in categories "Downloaded", "Runing" (you can also force close any app there!!!!), "All" and "On SD card".

    Keyboard allows for quick language change.

    Is it just me or is the phone really smoother now? easier to select stuff, etc. Its like the touch sense was improved?

    when typing sms, you can see remaining letters till the next sms (before it was only when you where near the end of the first sms (160)
    also you can easily add pics etc to an sms

    I HATE the fact that there's a multi language button on the main keyboard...would be more useful for most if they put an button to go to emoticons not another language...i only use the one, so it's a complete waste of space!

    The only bug ive noticed it that the lock pattern doesnt show sometimes. It seems very random.

    Edit: Ah theres a new setting so it doesnt auto lock every time u press the power button. You can change the timing on the lock.

    The devs have to add support for apps to sd in the app,if they haven't done so you can't move it.I just moved a load but some obviously can't be moved.

    its not a bug, like i posted above, there is now an option on setting time for the lock pattern. Mine has also automatically changes to activate after
    '5 mins ' before it was immediately.

    Its is a waste of space for you but a gain of a larger target market for HTC.
    I personally sms in 2 languages depending on whom i send it to and its great that i can now control this easily. :cool:

    Am impressed Voice search is on this version; I remember reading about that on Nexus One and thought it was odd it was missing. It's dead smart. Just resisting saying rude things and giggling.

    I'm sure there will be a keyboard along before the day is out that gets rid of the language shottcut and gives us the microphone symbol back anyway so the language option won't bug me for long. :cool:
