    This morning I awoke to a pleasant surprise.....notification that 2.0.1 update was available for download. Instead of jumping on the bandwagon and complaining about things I can change, I will address the positives that I've noticed in the 1 hour that I've had the 2.0.1 update.

    1. After the update I no longer had 3G service but a reboot and *228 later, the notification returned and all is well.

    2. Even though my Yahoo email account worked prior to the update, I wasn't receiving notifications in my notification area but now I do!

    3. Now I am able to surf the web in landscape mode WITHOUT sliding out the keyboard.

    4. I haven't really noticed a speed increase that others have reported but my phone was plenty fast already.

    So far so good.............

    Update: I tried to open the "Gallery" shortcut on the homescreen and received the notification "Application is not installed on device". INSTEAD of panicking, I deleted the shortcut and reinstalled the shortcut and it worked.

    I am rather tech savy and I am sure after four weeks of owning the phone I would have noticed. ;)

    It worked on my phone for the past four weeks. It was pretty much the only time that I ever used the touchscreen landscape keyboard.

    yeah browser worked in landscape for me as well prior to the update. I used it much more that way than in portrait mode. And I never use the hardware keyboard

    For whatever reason i had to slide out the keyboard to re-orientate the phone in landscape. Once in landscape mode I was able to slide the keyboard back in and surf away. Maybe I just discovered my first problem, although no longer relevant, with the Droid. ;)
