Android 2.1 rolls out December 11, new Android Market functionality?
Yesterday Google updated Android´s official website, which immediately led to speculations that the change was due to the soon to come Android 2.1. According to AndroidandMe, the new OS edition will roll out at about the same time when the new terms and conditions for using Android Market become effective, i.e. from December 11 onwards. The rumor also has it that the Motorola DROID and HTC DROID ERIS will be among the first handsets to get updated to the new version of Android on the above-mentioned date.

But this is not all. There are also speculations that new functions are coming to the online application store at the same date - customers will be able to pay for purchased programs via their carrier as well as a software client that allows access from a normal computer.

Well what are you going for? If you have a hotmail acct and need to update MSO documents on the go for meetings, and if you are constantly in and out of airports I would go Omnia 2. AMOLED Screen is great for movies and videos while on the plane etc. Native Divx support. If you just want to customize the hell out of your phone then go android. But I would wait for a Snapdragon Android device.

You can customize a WinMo phone greater than Android. Just check over the xda site, it's filled with goodies!

Fsjon, Oh believe me sir I know... I am talking to the average person who knows nothing about anything, and doesn't want to spend the time of day to actually learn how to use their phone. I have a Vogue and am a huge windows mobile fan and highly suggest it over anything. So don't you dare give me a -1 becuase I am making a comment to someone on a simple basis. I have 6.5.1 running on my phone, Android 1.6 with Cyanogen mod, and I have a PS1 emulator, SNES emulator, and GBA emulator on my phone. Can you do that with Android, maybe, but I haven't seen it. Can the iPhone do anything clsoe to that, NO! and can the webOS get anywhere close to that versatility, NO! Windows Mobile is bar far a superior OS, and you are a tool.

ACTUALLY there are SNES, NES, GBA, and Gensis emulators for Android have them all running quite nicely on my moto droid. But i to was a big WINMO fan had the omnia before my droid and there are soooo many custom roms out there to make the phone suit your needs better. modaco.com a great site for that sutff. But for calling people a tool for using android is just rediculas u are the tool sticking with Microsoft who TRY to lock you down (though we find wasys around) rather than going to the completly open sourced operating system based off of linux which is just gonna run better than anything microsoft ever puts out

I didn't call the Android OS users a tool. I called fsjon a tool. I like the Android OS. If i didn't like WinMo so much I woudl buy an Eris today.
