    There were two things about the Android platform that gave me the "it's still rough" feelings. The Gallery, which is now incredible with the leaked 2.1 gallery out there now. And, the Music Player....

    I use Pandora, Cherry RPlayer, and TuneWiki and I never touch the stock music player. Has anyone heard if the next major release after 2.1 will have a revamped music player? I would love to see a stock music player that is fully integrated with the loaded music and streaming content, but anything would be better than the barbaric solution they have now.

    Anyone hear any rumors?

    Some of the users here have 2.1 installed on their Droids. I'd like to hear if the media player has changed at all. It needs a lot of work unfortunately. I really wish we could have controls on the lock screen. That alone would make it a hundred times better.

    i am wondering if they are going to revamp the media player once the official release of adobe flash player drops? that way the content would work much like the native youtube app/ player works instead of playing content in the browser like some of the videos i've seen.

    Agreed. Beautiful OS Android is. The music player however is a complete fail! Of course Google has always been about simplicity, not UI.

    I think TuneWiki or MixZing are better than meridian. I really never did get what all the hype was about with Meridian. Installed it, played around with it, uninstalled it. TuneWiki is the closest to having that polished Apple look to it (no, I'm not an Apple fan boy but they are one of the tops in UI design)

    As far as I know, the music player was just revamped for 2.0, so they probably aren't going to be making a drastic change to 2.1.

    Changing UI isn't something they are going to do for every version. If you don't like the native one, use an APP that makes it work how you like.

    What a load of crap. I'm very disappointed in this.

    I'd be surprised if they didn't revamp it very very soon. They have been catching a lot of flak for it on forums like this and on tech blogs like engadget.
