    Thanks for posting that. I am glad that they clarified about not everyone receiving it day one.... it is a roll out which means that the process will take time to reach everyone.

    Trouble is they said that ages ago when it was by end of Q3

    thing with a roll out is the could release Nordics on 31st and still not do UK till December, but still classed OK as it was stated "roll-out"

    anyhow

    I think we are getting carried away with 2.1.

    Besides being able to download some apps that I can't get on 1.6 and a better camera, I don't think it is going to be that earth shattering for me.

    hence why i have NEVER understood all the hyping - why does everyone need it now

    its not gonna bring that much extra to what we have

    and there's some 2.1 handsets out on the market now that CANNOT do anything that i can't (except apps)

    My concern is that there are fewer and fewer new apps which are backwards (ie. 1.6) compatible. Skype is a big one in question.
    It's becoming more obvious and it's a bit of a pain.

    <worry>And even then, how long will it be before we're left behind on 2.1 as others progress from 2.2 to 3.0? </worry>

    Do you know MrW, I don't think that it will make much difference to me, I'll probably just download the Eclair ADW and have it all set up the same as I currently do cos its just easier for this old gal to do it that way. I have really struggled to get to grips with the hysteria over the upgrade.

    Ebobirthday killed my battery btw:( bummers!

    Watch them release it Nov. 30. Cuz they wouldn't be wrong if they did that, it's still November haha.

    And seriously, I already made a list of apps i really want/need with 2.1. So I think majority of people aren't looking for SE's so called "improvements" but more so the apps that require 2.1 hence all the angry people.

    Wouldn't bug me at all if it were Nov. 30 -- I'm patient. It's only a month. But I'd anticipate we'll see it more mid-November.

    We'll see though. It'll get here when it gets here. I haven't had any limitations on what I can do with my phone based on 1.6 other than angry birds, so *shrugs* rofl.

    I keep my expectations low.. saves me from disappointment ;)

    Hehehe

    i don't need any apps on 2.1 except

    ANGRY BIRDS

    so bloody addicted and sick of carrying iPod Touch to play it

    oh and battery life would be good so i can play it longer

    just hope i can root the 2.1 soon so i can keep my UI and FONT as it looks so much better than the sony tat

    There seems to be alot of rogue apps that people are using without knowing they are easting their battery.

    So I may start a thread for X10 users to list rogue apps that eat at their battery

    trouble is i get 20hrs out of it WITH that app installed, with heavy texting, tweeting, emailing and wi-fi

    so i don't understand how it can kill 1 users battery and not another

    hence why i will uninstall to see if it lasts any better over next 2 days
