Alright my fellow Android lovers this is a biggie! We’re all dying to know what Android 2.0 is all about and BGR has done it again – publishing a MONSTER article that shows off Android 2.0 in great detail. I’ll summarize the high points but you’ll definitely want to check out the BGR for the full scoop.
Here are a few of the most telling pics and below that, find our summarized bullet points for the down and dirty details:
NOTE: If pictures are not working try back in 10 minutes and press CTRL + F5. We’re currently upgrading a server and the problem should be fixed by tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.
- Native Microsoft Exchange support
- Native Facebook support including contact syncing
- Browser improvements
- Updated maps application with “Layers” for traffic, satellite, lattitude, Wikipedia, “My Maps”, Transit lines and more!
- UI makeover
- Browser is fast, has favicons, no pinch/zoom
- YouTube video with recording/uploading of your mobile vids directly to YouTube from the homescreen!
- Tons more settings options across the board
- “Car Home” application that uses voice commands and simplified interface for safe/effective device use while driving.
- Tap on a contact name/photo and a popup with icons for call/txt/email/facebook/etc will show up which eliminates unnecessary scrolling and whatnot. Looks nice.
- Combined Inbox… uhoh, Sense and BLUR better step up their GAME!
It is pretty obvious that BGR has the Motorola Droid in his possession… so I expect a hardware review coming up. Stay tuned and we’ll let you know!
