I’m too impatient to wait for the Android OS 2.1 update to be pushed to my Droid. So, after reading Frank’s blog item last night, I followed the link to droidedup.com and manually updated my Droid to 2.1.
This update brings it functionality similar to the Nexus One. You can read about my experience updating that device to 2.1-Update1 in February.
Unlike the Nexus One, the updated Droid only has three customizable home pages. But, that is not a limitation for me. It does bring a number of welcome feature additions to the Droid though. This includes:
– Pinch-to-zoom across applications
– The dynamic live desktops (I like this feature a lot more than I expected before trying it on the Nexus One)
– The ability to view PicasaWeb photos without actually downloading all the photos
The Droid replaced the iPhone 3G as my primary data phone. So, these are extremely welcome feature additions.
