    :thinking: So now that allot of folks here are running the 2.1 beta version? It has quiet down the expectulation on when we will recieve the lastest & greatest 2.1 update from Sprint. That being said I know that this has been brought up on other forums, But do you think Sprint 2.1 release will bring additional software than the leaked verison? Examples like pinch to zoom?

    I would like to know when they will update and see what other things will come 2.1 update versus the leaked if any?

    Thanks

    I know theres a couple things left out of the beta, One might possibly be pinch zoom but nobody really knows if the phone can indeed do that with the current hardware. The other stuff left out was the flan gallery which is ok as long as the fragments are fixed in our version. Other than those 2 things I dont think theres really anything besides bug fixes that could come out.

    It's really best if you dont 'expect' things from Sprint, but find yourself pleasantly surprised when they actually follow through.

    Look...we don't know what the official will bring and will not bring. We just got a leak version lets be grateful for that and then let everything else take it's coarse. We can't know about something that doesn't exist *yet*. SDX are on the ball with everything regarding 2.1 related thus far.

    No more threads like this? Thank you.

    Does anyone think they will include a new launcher. Was the N1 launcher specific to the N1 or was it 2.1 launcher?

    Thats wishful thinking. 2.1 is the main topic of discussion for our phones. Without threads like this the moment section will be very quiet until the release does come. Part of the fun in waiting for a new OS is speculation.

    Sprint will release their version once SDX and all of SDX's beta testers are finished polishing the release.

    The thing about us geeks is that we love to tinker and Sprint knows that. Dozens of devs and many more QA people for free. Who could ask for more?

    Sprints service is great and the options we get for the money paid is terrific. I'm okay with being an unofficial beta tester if that means I get previews of the new stuff. And when I tire of doing it, I'll just be a patient little boy and not whine about not having it.

    Well I didn't look at it that way my bad. Carry on.

    Also I "think" that's the nexus 2.1 launcher is standard 2.1 could be wrong tho. Either way Helix is better. helps use up that real estate.

    Completely agree. I dont like that N1 doesnt slide. Ive grown quite fond of swiping instead of clicking.

    This is just more speculation but BAW is still down right now, and the sprint website just got an overhaul. I would think they will give it at least a week or 2 to work out all the kinks before they push out an update.

    When say Helix is better? Have you tried Openhome in comparison? I have openhome now and I think is pretty good! But this what is all about..."different strokes for different folks"...lol

    I prefer helix cause it doesn't add extra things I don't really need other than ability to make more screens and be able to dock on the sides of the launcher *bugged the hell out of me that it wasn't standard!*

    I tried open home on my friends hero, it was alright didn't go trough it much, it did lagg his phone tho, BUT he wasn't rooted or anything so maybe that were the case.

    April 14 anyone?

    I hope that they already have builds significantly better than the leaked dd03/dc23 being tested. Neither are close to what I would consider release ready. I would much rather they missed their target date than release a partially finished and buggy system that needs immediate patching to be acceptable.

    Agreed, however judging from their previous actions they thought that Moment+cj05 was release ready. They have VERY different opinions about quality programming than... well... EVERYONE else.:eek:

    The earlier official 2.1 update is released, the earlier corresponding source code will be released. If Sprint.com website update continues to falter, there will be delays to the update. April 23rd is my guess.

    The date will be set the day that Sprint releases 2.1. That way Sprint will not be breaking any promises by setting a date and then not getting it out on time.

    The only thing firm, date wise, is early second quarter. That's some time in April. They still have more than half the month to release it on time.
