    is it possible to manually rotate the screen or fix the current screen orientation (with a key/button)? because it really annoys me having taken portrait pictures that cannot be viewed (with the media gallery application) in a portrait fashion on the milestone. this is because it always rotates the portrait picture back to landscape when rotating the milestone from landscape to portrait. right now there is no way of properly viewing portrait pictures on the milestone other than tilting your head (holding the milestone landscape and tilting your head along).

    c'mon..., this cannot be the way it was intended to be, right? or do I have to get a different viewing software which allows you to choose screen orientation? is there such an app?

    thanx for your help

    Settings -> Sound & Display -> Orientation

    You could get Switchpro (google it) to replace the power widget which adds a button for phone rotation.
    Another app which would make browsing the gallery even more fun is the 3D Gallery ported from the Nexus One. The APK is called Gallery3DTM.apk.

    Hope this helps.
