    Besides the technical changes that comes with every phone's GB update, what new features will we be seeing on our phone, most specifically in Sense, if any?

    I used to get very excited when hearing about updates for the DROID/DROIDX because so many new features were always added to the OEM's "skin." Is it the same for Sense?

    Its tough to say really. I used to have an original incredible, and the jump would have been pretty drastic to gb. But it seems like the inc2 has some of the features built in already, like being able to copy and paste. GB is also supposed to be much better on battery life and multitasking, so I would imagine those things would improve.

    As far as sense being upgraded, its definitely a newer verision than whats on the original inc, (I know because it actually works, lol) and I beleive its the same, or pretty close to the same as whats on the TB, so as far as I'm aware, we already have the newer version of that. No one really knows what will be included until vzw or HTC releases something official. Considering all the major issues the recent droidx updates caused, I would imagine we may have to wait a while for ours to get updated.

    Battery is alright for me. Not great, but alright.

    And I really wanna know already haha. Since we're not getting Sense 3.0, I wanna know what other major enhancements we might get.

    I hear that GB is suppose to enforce tethering now by actively blocking it... I pray this isn't true....

    I updated, and I noticed several small enhancements. In the notification bar, there's a tab at the bottom full if quick settings like wifi and mobile network. The metal skin was added. And I also think that battery has improved, but I may just be using it less.
