    Widget lovers. I'm sure there will be a homebrew-patch out in an instant after the official 2.0-release that allows you to switch the Pre to "Exhibition"-mode with a swipe of your finger (like a swipe down from the middle menu or a forwardswipe on the main screen) - and there you have your widgets-equivalent. (with the only difference that it doesn't suck your battery dry while you don't need it)

    ...at 1ghz the splash screens are gone in a sec or 2....

    Honestly, I was always pretty disappointed with the widget functionality on my Nexus One. The Google provided weather/news widget never really updated automatically properly. I always had to open it up to get the weather to refresh. (and I went through 3 Nexus Ones, 2 T-Mobile, 1 AT&T variety, and several different ROMS and stock firmware versions). The *idea* of widgets is ok I guess, but Android's implementation sucks.

    Don't get me wrong, there are things that are great about Android, but overall, I greatly prefer webOS, and the loss of widgets is hardly a dealbreaker for me.

    ...in 2.0 why couldn't they just expand upon the launcher icons, since they update...they're basically 'widgets'.....

    Yes but I'm trying to see this from a stock 500mhz point of view. Palm said at Developer Day they were working on a way for apps to load instantly so I'm hoping it's included in 2.0.

    Speculative new features in 2.0 (based on yesterdays leaked images):

    Add/Remove Launcher Pages
    Reorder Launcher Pages
    Named Launcher Pages

    Text Correction:
    Auto-Caps on/off
    Auto creation of shortcuts on/off
    Auto-Correction on/off
    System Sound (on/off) played when typing is auto-corrected (user selectable sound)
    Edit User Dictionary

    I think there might be some folders implementation as well. In one screen shot there was some palm-apps in a launcher page, and at the top it said "palm", so im thinking that maybe you can group things kinda like folders in iOS

    I noticed that as well and was trying to figure out what it was. Launcher folders does fit.

    They're named pages, like the patch, just official. I think they trying to introduce a new gesture, tap-hold (it's needed for renaming the pages). I don't remember needing to tap-hold nowhere else on webOS (ok, the full screen gmail patch uses it)

    That sounds logical...thanks for the clarification!

    sweet! and tap-hold/long press/whatever is really intuitive and I think it would be cool to have in webOS more.

    I would like to see some sort of link between apps such as calendar and contacts (like in Agendus). For example, if i have an appointment with Dr. Smith on my calendar, i can just tap "dr. smith" in the apppointment and dial the phone, send a text or email, or open his contact information. Even view the contact's address on a map without opening up the respective apps.

    I think the only way to to this (sort of), is to create the appointment in Exchange, sync it, and when the notification pops up you can contact the atendees, but not the way you'd like I think there was a thread somewhere mentioning this

    This is how I would do it:

    From event in Calender or perhaps while looking at notification of upcoming event I would start a Universal Search for the contact in question.

    From there the contacts Name, Phone number, e-mail and SMS info is all automatically displayed on the screen and you can tap whichever you like to start a conversation.

    Best part is I would have only typed 1 or 2 letters by this point....very easy and quick.

    Yes, but there really should be a way of linking contacts to the appointment

    Yes, agreed. However I do think that U-S is a very good work around in the meantime. I'm hopping for a stronger calendar app in 2.0.
