    I have an HTC Desire through Ntelos out here in Virginia. When I go to search for something using the google search widget from a home screen, it won't orient to landscape. I don't have any trouble with the keyboard rotating with e-mail or SMS.

    Any ideas?

  2. That is something google hasn't fixed, try downloading google voice search, and then you can speak what you want to search.
    Go here to see more info, probably the best app Android offers.

    It's not the search widget, its a limitation of the HTC Sense UI that does not rotate to Landscape mode. Since the search widget runs on top of this, then it too is unable to rotate.

    Try Launcher Pro to see the search widget in lanscape mode. Mind you, it's pretty naff as the keyboard pops up full screen and covers the results. :-(

    Thanks....I'll deal with it for now. Does anybody know if Android 2.3 fixes this?
