    I wouldn't count on seeing BT voice dialing anytime soon from what I've been told.

    Can't wait for the actual 2.1 to get pushed out from VZW tho. Already seen it on a Droid but to many bugs at this point in the files on the float so there is no point in flashing to it yet.

    Another article on the update:

    http://www.wirelessandmobilenews.co...smartphones_droid_will_be_upgraded_to_21.html

    Well there looks to be good news and bad news...

    The bad: it doesn't look like we will be receiving the full version of 2.1 on our Droids. Some 3D features won't be enabled? That sounds like they could be but for some reason are being left out.

    The awesome super good news: Flash 10.1!!!! I was wondering when this would be avaiable. The first half of 2010 was too vague and didn't seem too promising. If the Jan 22nd launch date is correct we will have flash enabled in two weeks...freakin awesome!

    For those that are interested, the gallery app from 2.1 is available for the Droid right now...and you don't have to be rooted to install. I have it and it's quite an improvement over the stock gallery. Seperates pictures by date and/or location, smooth, easier swype scrolling and a little 3d action. The app and directions for install can be found over at droidmuff.in

    another update

    An article I found on the update showing what's upgraded in version 2.1

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/186768/googles_android_21_how_itll_change_your_phone.html

    I have the Flan gallery installed this gallery sounds different. Nothing too big in the update ( I was hoping for Flash 10.1 like it was rumored). The most exciting thing for me is the speech to text. Now all text field support talk to text. Being able to speak text and emails sounds real cool to me.:dft009:smile

    Speech to text is excellent. I've found it to be pretty accurate. I've used it with twidroid and in short emails and it's been accurate about 90% of the time even with my deep Texas accent.

    I'd guess they are either running the Android 2.1 Rom already, or have one of the custom 2.0.1 ROM on there device that had certain 2.1 stuff ported and updated so it works. I'll be flashing mine soon just havent had time the past few days.

    If you're interested check out this site http://www.sholes.info/

    that's what I figured. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on some cool app. The speech to text apps Ive used are not too good. Hopefully 2.1 fixes that. Im not comfortable enough to root my phone.Guess I will just have to wait for the update!

    yea rooting the Droid is simple really. One file that needs to be put on the TF card, reboot into recovery to install and you are pretty much golden.

    AFAIK it was just a rumor. There was no mention of anything happening on or around today except the 2.0.1 update for Milestone owners

    It looks like it might just be a rumor. Motorola just posted this on Twitter:

    MotoMobile For DROID users asking about an OTA update, we have not released a new one since Dec. update. Pls visit our support forums if having issues

    Who knows? They don't exactly deny there is an update today.
