    To me, getting to run those apps is not such a big deal. I hope the os upgrade improves performance, but Im not banking on it being significant.
    Im wondering whether it's possible that performance may actually suffer after the os upgrade; that it might be like trying to run Windows 7 with a Pentium 1 processor.

    BORING..... that's like saying "I don't really care about getting presents... I'm just looking forward to being another year older."

    Talk to me is a translator app. You speak into it and it translates what you said into the language you chose and plays the translation out loud.

    I don't think that will be a 2.0 thing. It will probably be more of a patch update or a 3.0 thing. It would be nice if it was an add on app though.

    No, the one I am talking about lets you speak and then it translates what you have said into French, German, Spanish, Italian, etc and speaks the translated phrase back to you.

    You usually have to do a bit of editing but i still find it faster than using the touch keyboard.
