    Android 2.1 (Enclair), 2.2 (Froyo) and Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) are Smartphone operating systems developed by Android. Each firmware update has its own unique gadgets and overall look. Some allow you to tip your screen however you like and your Android will turn whichever way to accommodate you (Landscape vs portrait). Others have specific changes in the keyboard system and how you would email, text others parties. In all each firmware update is of its own, a personal preference. However, most users turn to 2.2 (Froyo) since it is the most popular among updates. But in contrast 2.3 (Gingerbread) is also rising in popularity due to the newer applications and gadgets it provides.

    Switching between Eclair, Froyo and Gingerbread can be tricky and I am unsure if you can. However, I would suggest to stick with one and go with it. Google between the three of them, look at interfaces and reviews on who likes what more and pick whichever suits your needs.

    In concerns to the home screen, maybe this link will help you.

    Good luck, enjoy your new phone and hope I have helped. :)
