    I was watching a video on Android 2.0 (from the Google Conference, I believe) and the presenter show a feature that allowed you to pull up your contact list and simply start "drawing" the letters of the contact you are looking for and it will jump right to it, rather than having to scroll down. For example you would draw "e" then "r" and it would jump right to Eric.

    I haven't seen this discussed anywhere else when testing the phone, so I thought either this feature didn't make it or it needs to be enabled or something.

    Anyone else seen or know anything about this?

    wow, yes... that would save me an endless amount of time. I have a very hard time searching through all 11 contacts in my phone. :D


    That really does seem like a good idea, though. I mean... for people who actually have friends. lol.

    It's in the app drawer on the emulated android device that comes with the SDK, so the feature is at least there.. I'll have to try it out on friday when I get my phone.
