Release date: Sprint has said early second quarter 2010. That means April to mid May. What will the update bring to the table? (Speculation) - Google Navigation - Live Wallpapers - Ability to use the MANY 1.6+ apps - Voice Search - Voice Input - 3D gallery - Native CDMA support - Stability Improvements - Multitouch Will this remove root? YES. If you have rooted your moment, root will be gone after the update. If you "need" root do not update right away. 2.1 will be rooted for the Moment but will probably take some time. When Sprint says 2nd quarter they are speaking of course to April - June. Usually the only time you speak Jan - May is when talking financial data. This thread isn't for everyone who already knows this stuff. this thread is for people that want to open another thread and ask questions that are answered here. Instead of getting 45+ threads asking the same questions hopefully people can look here and get the answers.
