This is more of a rant then anything else, so if you are looking for hard facts, move along. Seems we are considered first gen android. I always thought of this phone being at least a tiny step above the rest. As such I speculate we will get either 1.6 or 2.1 but thats it. Android versions beyond will probably require snapdragon or TI omap3 level cpus(ARMv7, we have ARMv6. If you got adb setup, shell in and type 'cat /proc/cpuinfo'). But I'm happy with this phone and look forward to more updates. But for now I'm content with the bug fix. I've lived without turn by turn navigation all this time(why else would you want 1.6 or 2.x?) and can live without it a while longer. More thoughts: Kinda left this open ended but hows this question: What would you like to see in the next generation of android phones? Of course I would want a great camera. Would RAW be too much to ask? Also the next thing needed is high quality video, HD even. And then after that would be dlna certification so the phone could talk to a dlna certified tv or even the ps3 to stream video and photos and well any media to them.
