After voicing my irritation, I upgraded to Android 2.0.1, which is essentially a set of bug fixes for Android 2.0. Hooray. Only 2 months after the Droid.
I have also used market-enabler after rooting my device to make it more useful and let me see all the apps - paid and otherwise.
Now there is the news that the bootloader is signed; this means no custom firmware; sigh. This made the press.
In the mean time, its been announced that the Droid will be updated to Android 2.1, albeit with unconfirmed details. Its amazing how badly an old-school manufacturer gets it so wrong so consistently.
Should have bought a Nexus One.
