    I've seen so many threads on Android 2.0 and it seems likes lots of people are really excited about having it on the Moment.

    Here's my question: What exactly can I expect when the Moment is upgraded to Android 2.0? Will it just be faster/smother or will there be other benefits?

    I think it will be faster & smoother based on the simple fact that it's being upgraded. (Similar to the upgrade from XP/Vista to Windows 7--i.e. new and improved.) It may even feel like a new phone, when we finally get it, depending on how many more revisions Google makes between now and then (and that's assuming Samsung & Sprint will keep us current).

    Multiple Gmail account support and Google nav are the two biggies.

    Overall speed should also be improved.

    The fast and simple list:

    Improvements in Android 1.6:
    -Google search widget is capable of searching content on phone as well as web, including: contacts, texts messages, and SD card contents.
    -Improvements to the camera, mostly speed improvements.
    -Ability to use VPNs.
    -New battery meter which will show what processes are using more of your battery.
    -Improvements to Google Market.
    -Software support for location via wireless networks (aGPS)

    Improvements in Android 2.0:
    -Ability to sync multiple user accounts at once.
    -"quick contacts" feature added: click on a contact's picture to get a pop-up menu allowing you to quickly call, message, e-mail, facebook, ect ...
    -Native MS Exchange support.
    -Improvements to the camera software, including digital zoom, and manual white balance controls.
    -Improvements to the virtual keyboard.
    -Significant browser improvements, including the ability to tap the URL bar to type a web address.
    -Double-tap zoom support, and (allegedly) multi-touch support.
    -Bluetooth 2.1 software support.
    -New framework APIs support some newer apps such as turn-by-turn nav for Google Maps, and Google Goggles (among many others).

    And these are just Android improvements, Sprint/Samsung would likely include phone specific bug fixes in addition to the OS update.
