    I hope this thread is different from others out there. Let's all try to point out only the things that are different/updated/changed with the 2.2 update. To stay on topic lets not talk about acquisition of 2.2.

    The first thing I noticed was subtle differences in the call-in-progress window. Also the messages app is refined a bit. Adding an attachment seems different

    If you are saying typing lag like posting in the forums well then that didn't change since I get that and I'm still in 2.1

    I like the "App Sharing" app. It lets you send any app out to someone else using pretty much anything on the phone: Facebook, Peep, Bluetooth, email, text, etc. Very nice if you're telling someone about something you have, and just want to sent it to them real quick. Downside is there does not appear to be a way to select more than 1 app.

    I was wanting to see if anyone that has received the OTA Android 2.2 on their Droid Incredible has noticed the differences with HTC Sense? I heard that there are new widgets for mail and text messages. If you could please post any information and/or pictures.

    I know that thread doesn't have all the answers at this point: but there is no reason creating another thread spreading the information thinner.

    Please take a moment to see if anyone else has created a relevant thread before hand.

    Well, this thread is about changes from 2.2, so not this one:)

    I don't recall any threads like that, so you might wanna do a search for chrome: but I think you'll need to create a new thread.

    ...and no, I haven't used Chrome on my Inc yet. I do use it for my PC web browser though and like it. Just like all browsers though, it does have it's little quirks and hiccups.

    Chrome to Phone is awesome. Once you have it installed on desktop and phone, you get a little icon in your browser on your PC. If you're looking at a page you want to send to your phone, you click the icon and you hear a "ding" on your phone. Pick up the phone, and the site should be loading there automagically.

    Came in handy when I saw somewhere that the new Fennec alpha was available while I was browsing on my laptop. Sent the link to my phone and it worked flawlessly.

    It doesn't seem to show up in the marketplace, but that doesn't matter because it's already in Froyo.

    There's no typing lag. I find the keyboard to be much better.
