    I searched for this but couldn't find a solution. Is there anyway to get the home screen and subsequent side screens to go into landscape mode? I've seen some other Android Phones/Tablets doing this and would like to be able to do so. Or does anyone know if this will be an option in the 2.1 update? I heard that the Droid used to do this, and then some update messed it up, but then saw it going into landscape mode on the video they posted today of the Droid running 2.1. Thanks!

    It doesn't work on 1.5.

    However, on Darchstar's 2.0.1 ROM, it goes into landscape, so I'm assuming this will be an option when the 2.1 update comes through.

    Not with Sense UI, but try GDE. It works in landscape!

    I know PandaHome does this on the Moment. Haven't tried it on my phone.

    The moment, with default android home, goes into landscape (but only when the keyboard is slid out).
