Starting tomorrow, the Droid is poised to join the Nexus One as the only other Android 2.1 handset on the market. Verizon has already updated their support page with a change log of sorts (PDF) as well as instructions for updating your Droid. Look for the rollout to start tomorrow, March 18th at 12:00PM EST in waves of around 250,000 each. If you don’t see it right away, just sit tight for a bit.
Among the changes Droid owners can expect:
- Pinch-to-zoom in the browser, gallery, and Google Maps.
- Weather and News app/widget.
- Support for voice-to-text entry – tap the microphone icon on the virtual keyboard and speak.
- New Gallery application with 3D layout.
- Live Wallpapers
