    Agreed. Looks wonderful over WiFi after a few seconds of buffering.

    They need to add some options in the menu for playback and they need to support the g sensor for browsing. Do you get better quality videos by using wifi over 3g?

    It's pretty much play or don't play, but at least it's a usable proof of concept. In class at the moment, but I'll try out 3G afterwards.

    It says Canada is not supported, but it doesn't say anything about America only.

    I'm running cyanogen 7 on my optimus one. Surprisingly fast. My 600mhz optimus one can get a higher score on quadrant than a 1ghz samsung galaxy s. :D 1200 @ stock 600mhz then 1793 at 750mhz!! VERY FAST!

    Well, number one. Your phone comes with stock 2.1 which is very slow. I've flashed mine to 2.3.3 GB which is MUCH faster allowing my 600mhz cpu to surpass your 1ghz cpu. Root your phone, and watch the necessary tutorial on how to install custom roms. Flash to 2.3.3.! You should easily be getting 1800-2000!

    Run NEO CORE, another benchmark program. IF you get anywhere between 50-60fps then it could be a problem with 2.3.3 with quadrant on your phone, so don't worry! Have you noticed the phone is alot smoother atleast? :)

    Is there something that simple for the droid X?

    I'm currently running 2.3.3 but I've been considering Rooting for a long time now.

    yeap,

    and then not

    first do the following

    install htc sync
    then uninstall it but leaving the drivers installed
    dl unrevoked, AND on the unrevoked site click on the MORE INFO link, DL the HBOOT drivers
    open unrevoked, after a bit go to device manager, see if theres a android 1.0 device that isnt installed, then update that with the HBOOT drivers

    and then you're pretty much done
