Well the only thing that I think really blows is that there is STILL no flash support from Adobe, they keep saying it will be available on the market place at the end of the year.

The interface took a bit getting used too but it wasnt hard, Instead of flicking the menu open from the bottom to see all the stuff you just press the button, and there is a Phone button and Internet button right next to it (granted I have those icons just above them and they're much larger). Also it gives you an additional 2 desktop screens which is nice.

My favorite part of the update is the MUCH better camera interface, oh my god this has made a world of difference now that I can actually set my Exposure setting instead of just choosing one.

It updated this morning at like 3-4AM so its brand new. And very well done update.

McFly
I heard there will be no Wi-fi hotspot support for the Droid, either. :(


Not officially supported from the carrier, who has to shoulder those data costs, no. That shouldn't be a surprise. Telecommunications companies hate having to compete, it's such an inconvenience to them that they can't just charge us $100/month for 450 minutes of voice, 500 texts and nothing else.

Get PDANet for Android. It's good. :D

He means software that can use the wifi radio in your phone to create a wifi hotspot -- effectively turning your phone into an internet connected router that your laptops (or other wifi-enabled devices) can connect to.

I'm running Windows Mobile 6.1 (yeah baby!) and it's grand. I've a program called "WMWifiRouter" that can share my 3G internet connection over wifi, Bluetooth, and USB. It's pretty awesome. A friend of mine and I once played a game of Age of Empires II using my phone as the router -- I had it plugged into my computer so it charged all the while. :D

Smartphones are awesome. :D

I had heard that Verizon claimed that the Droid didn't have the hardware capability to support the feature, but I don't know if that's true or not.

If it *can* do it, I'd be inclined to root it and install a vanilla version of Froyo (ha!) to get it.

Well people do run Froyo on Droid from what I understand? So im guessing Verizon is retarded and only say that for money reason.
