Verizon posts Android 2.1 upgrade details for Droid

// Chatter over the Milestone’s impending Android 2.1 update has reached a rolling boil in recent days, but it’s actually the Milestone’s American cousin that’s getting the official coverage today. That’s right: Verizon’s just posted details on the Droid’s upgrade to Google’s latest and greatest cut, and you’ve got the expected host of goodies including the new 3D Gallery app, voice-to-text, news and weather widgets, pinch-to-zoom support, “improved” pattern lock, and — get this — live wallpapers, something we’d originally thought Motorola might leave out. It appears to lack the Nexus One’s 3D app launcher (which we’d expected), but it’s still pure gold for owners. Let us know when you’ve gotten it, eh?

I’ve been a gearhead my whole life. This lead me to product and electrical design for a major auto maker. My love for design, computers/electronics and tinkering with gadgets forced the purchase of a smaprtphone when they first came out. I’ve stepped up through the ranks, WinMo, Blackberry (still have my Storm) and now an Android device. While using the Storm, I was a huge fan of themes, which brought me to WJDDesigns. I was honored to become part of this great team and could not be more proud to now be developing my own themes. I hope you enjoy what this team and our site has to offer.
