Droid to See Android 2.1 Tomorrow

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

    Lets see,
    Pinch to zoom: on browser, got it (dolphin). On maps, got it. Gallery, don’t care.
    News and weather – lots of apps already.
    Voice to text. Bad voice to text added to more inputs is still bad.
    Gallery and wallpapers, don’t care.
    First fix the easy stuff. When adding a new contact, you can’t pick which groups they are in. If you don’t have my contacts listed on the phone, any name added instantly disappears. That and about a dozen other somewhat obvious fixes should have been higher on the list.

    nice post. i like it :p

  10. It is really an encouraging news that with Droid to See Android 2.1 tomorrow, Droid owner will be the happy lot to get new changed features. Of all the changes, the one which fascinates my imagination is its new gallery application with 3D layout. Hope it sets the mobile market on fire.

    Of course. They falsify the street address in their registration, but they will be honest

    with you about the genuineness of the shoes that they will sell to you for less than the

    stores, even though their shipping expense (if they send them at all) would be higher.

    It doesn’t matter that much whether you get genuine shoes for this purchase (you won’t).

    What matters more is how many more charges are going to come in if you let them have your

    credit card number.
