Quick impressions of Android 2.0.1…

First and foremost, I’ll apologize to those out there sick of hearing about Android news tonight. What can I say, it’s been a busy night for the little green giant. Anyway, I went ahead and downloaded the Android 2.0.1 firmware and followed the instructions. After about 3 minutes I had a new Android version number and a much bigger smile. My Droid is like new. Ok, am I being melodramatic and overhyping the update?

I don’t think so. The speed navigating between the homescreens is finally iPhone smooth. The lockscreen has been tweaked — in my opinion for the better. I just never quite liked the look of the old dialer style. Another UI change is that the Google sourced “Power Control” widget has been changed to an HTC Sense UI style. Odd that it is the only widget to carry the updated style. Bug, slipup, purposeful decision? Who cares, I like it. As for the camera, the pictures are still just average, but at least you can take average looking pictures in much quicker fashion. No more having to bust out the chair and rubber cement to keep the kids posing for the hour long picture…

What else…oh yeah. The battery. Seeing as how I’ve only had the update installed for 10 minutes, I’m pretty sure I’ll have to get back to you on that one. Overall 2.0.1 is a good update.

I take back what I said earlier about manually updating your Droid — it isalmost iPhone simple. Leave your 2.0.1 impressions in the box — carefully picked just for you — below. As for me, I’m going to go bury my face in a pillow for 4 hours. Night folks.
