    There's things like this missing and the google maps show which direction your facing feature that are on the iphone 3GS that aren't on the droid and it bothers me! No point in bragging about a compass if it has like no use....

    The compass function is available in the New Google Maps off the Android Market -> Navigate to the "Labs" section of the menu and activate it :)

    It took iPhone three iterations to even get a camera that can record video natively. I am 100% certain Android 3.0 OS will have video recording and editing standard.

    No one is going to make one because of the fragmentation in Android.
    You have cameras in different phones that uses different codecs. Some record in 3gp, some in h.263, and in the future h.264 at different resolution. Editing h.264 is different than editing 3gp. And even within h.264, you have ONPV6.

    Google recently announced a open-source codec a few months ago, IF every phone manufacture agrees to use it, then yes, maybe, a developer will make a video editor. For now, it is just too hard to develop an app if you need 40-50 different phones to test against.

    This is just my opinion and I hope I am wrong on this.

    I think u r wrong speedmaster. You've mentioned 3 codecs, big wow, that would be easy for a video editing app.

    In comparing the ip4 and SGS, this video editing is becoming more of a deal breaker than I perhaps realise... the latest electricpig video showing ip4 footage shot and edited with an ip4 is just stunning.

    it's only a matter of time before they release the API's for this and maybe even google will give us a fully functional app of this! but deffinetly not impossable! your welcome! =]

    You beat me to it, I was about to mention the Youtube video editor feature thing. I haven't tried it out myself but was interested if others have, and if it runs on flash.

    i am definitely about to use it. i'm sure there isn't much to be done with it, but just that it is and exists is awesome!!! and it has more potential than almost anything i have seen in the past year!

    This is very annoying considering that my phone seems to record better quality video than my actual camera, yet my mac doesn't want to know it.

    I Disagree with this opinion. There will be video editors for Android in the near future.

    I have a 20 minute video on my N1, want to cut it shorter so I can load it onto Youtube, but it's too long to upload to Youtube in the 1st place to edit it there.

    If you have a Windows machine, dump it the file there and use Windows Movie Maker to do your editing. It's a great FREE app from MS and fun to use - you can add transitions, music, captions and more. When you're done, upload it wherever you want. I have used it many times for fun vids of wakeboarding, my daughter's birth, and more.

    I am so disappointed to not find an editor for my original Droid which would really be handy for those quick vids of my little one doing her thing baby thing.

    All I want to do is rotate... Damn it, I wish I was a better developer. lol.

    My Droid1 saves the files as .3gp files, which after some reading, I learn is a special MPEG-4 wrapper. What I did on my mac was connect via USB, copy the desired movie file over and changed the file extension to .mov

    I can then edit with iMovie.

    Hope this helps!

    Ive just successfully used :

    Your Free Online Video Editor | JayCut

    to upload video from phone, edit, and then download. Its not perfect, as some of the buttons are a bit small for mobile screen, but it does work. Make sure you click the 'fullscreen' button.

    Im using Desire running Froyo.

    To trim videos on your Android phone, check out the Snip Video Trimmer in the Market. It's my new app. It supports 3gp files created on your Android phone.

    Trim is at least something but $3 to trim videos? No thanks.
