    Thanks for the link :D

    Happy to hear about all the improvements (love the numeric unlock option instead of pattern!) but I REALLY wanted the 360* rotation and colored trackball alerts...

    Cant wait for Froyo :)

    got this from XDA didnt see it posted so I figured Id share. Im rooted so I have most of these. The numeric unlock is a plus. I had the pattern thingy and when ur drunk, it can sometimes be a hassle...lol This makes me wonder what can these devs offer on their ROMS once this is released.

    "Car Docking
    Froyo updated the layout of the Car Home app when the Nexus One is placed in the Google Car Dock. The Android 2.1 screen looked like this:
    [​IMG]
    And the new Froyo screen looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    Main changes:
    The Directions button is the same as the View Map button from 2.1, and you can access Navigation from within the Google Maps app that gets launched.
    Added a Music icon
    Added a Phone icon
    Removed the text search icon
    Modified the Home button with an Exit Car Mode button
    Other changes I noted was that once you exit Car Home mode, tapping the Home button on the Nexus One does not return you to Car Home mode, it keeps you at the basic Android desktop; you need to manually restart the Car Home application.
    It was also a nice surprise to see that while in the Google Car Dock, the main Android Desktop is also rotated, something that 2.1 was not capable of.

    That's so cool. release images of the car dock. I like how the home screen is rotatable in car dock. I wonder how hard it is to get the home screen rotatable without the car dock.

    Could this be one of the best updates of any platform in a long time? A lot of these things sound like a completely new phone. That mobile hotspot is awesome for me as a regular business traveler to other countries where i can't use my verizon card!
