I finally had the time to stop into Verizon yesterday and have them try to upgrade my Droid to the 2.1 Android OS. At first the guy who looked at it was baffled and then after multiple attempts to upgrade it, decided to just replace it with a new one. So now I have a shiny new phone and a shiny new OS.
It got me thinking about how easy it is to replace electronics these days than to send them back for repairs. Somebody may eventually own that phone again, but it was far quicker to just assign a new one to me. How do I like the new OS? It’s cool. I have not had a chance to fully explore all the new features but what I have seen is impressive. Love the live backgrounds and the voice inputs. Although it seems to understand my voice better than my seven year old’s voice.
