    Is that the same generation as the dream? I had a dream, and because of the hardware they would never update it past 1.6

    2.1 was made available for the HERO for unbranded units and providers were supposed to release it to customers.

    can someone one on 2.2 with a desire run linpack and tell my their score please.

    Just got my a G1 for a damn nice price, rooted and unlocked. It's running 2.2 i believe (just started reading about all this stuff, so give me time), but i'm watching some videos and i'm looking at getting some games installed (wink wink GBA Emulator).

    WOOO my 1600 mAh battery for my nexus one just arrived, battery life should be MUCH better.

    (stock nexus one battery is 1400mAh) The great thing about this upgraded battery is that it fits in the stock casing!

    Post if you get significant improvement. Where did you buy it from? Lots of batteries say they're better but are poop.

    I've got an EVO on sprint for a few days now. heavy use with wifi and 4g etc on it will run out in a few hours.... but turn off wifi and 4g, turn display down and use it as a phone and it lasts for 2+ days for me.... I was worried after reading reviews but have been happy.

    I'm really interested in these new Archos Tablets coming out in a few weeks. the 10.1" 16gb i am thinking of pre-ordering.... and an early adopter i am not. But I am interested in the tech soo much and I just... want one :)

    2.2 Improved my incredible SO much. Used to, it wouldn't reboot for weeks! But after the update, it reboots several times a day! I love the new speed rebooting!!! /sarcasm


    I ended up getting a replacement shipped yesterday. I've reactivated the stupid thing 4 times in less than 2 weeks (and once it reactivated on its own...). Hopefully the new one will be more stable.

    First day of testing, 17.5 hours from 100% to 10% battery, wifi and sync on, MUCH MUCH better than my old batter could ever manage.

    heres the battery I bought. http://www.thecellguru.com/Products/22707 soooo awesome.

    I think the N1 battery works in the Desire as well. Although 2.1 is raping my battery more than anything I might still pick one up eventually.

    Wow that's a great deal for the 16gb 10.1 tablet. Too bad they dont have a 3G version but it supports BT tethering from they phone. You got me pretty interested in this device.

    Bit expensive though?

    Well my stock battery is a bit worn out so its been bugging me with short life lately, I thought the price was worth every penny for the larger size.

    Also the expanded battery is actually slightly slimmer than the stock battery, real high quality cells :)

    15% more battery life, mAh sounds small but when you put it in context of a 12hour battery life @ 1400 mAh thats nearly 2 hours more battery life with the 1600mAh, which for me is a HUGE difference.

    It's the difference between having to charge my phone before I go out at night and not having to even though I spent two hours surfing the web on wifi earlier that day.

    Not quite sure what the point is, but I put Windows 95 on my Droid. Cool for showing people at school & impressing them with my geek awesomeness :D
