What a night! First, Twitter for iPhone is released (well, it’s kind of released) and Sprint Hero customers finally get theirs!
According to various sites, T4i is being propagated through various App Stores around the world, and has yet to reach these shores. What we do know is that there are tons of new features and UI improvements, but is essentially a rebranded Tweetie 2. UPDATE: Get the app now from the app store!
In other news, Sprint has gone official with its 2.1 update for the HTC Hero. Again, nothing OTA, but you can download it from their support website.
According to Android Central, the update comes with most of the niceties that Eclair affords, sans Live Wallpapers, which need a beefier processor to run without slowdown.
Hit up the download and let us know what’s new.
It may not be the mid-April date that Motorola had promised so long ago, but it’s better than nothing. According to Motorola’s Facebook page European Motorola Milestone users can now get their official 2.1 update bringing with it, the option to use as many as a whopping nine homescreens. Voice dialing over Bluetooth is also an added feature that the US Motorola Droid did not receive in it’s version of 2.1 that the Milestone will receive.
Users have been reporting however that they are having issues after the update with putting their devices in the multimedia dock. Motorola has offered some advice on how to fix the problem—simply clearing out the multimedia cache should resolve the issue.
In some cases problems with docking stations have been due to old cache, try this:
1.Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications
2.Press menu button
3.Filter -> All -> Multimedia station -> Clear data
The update is available from Motorola’s Milestone support page and is currently only available as a side-loaded update but we hear that an OTA version is in the works. A PDF is available here if you need more details before you bite the bullet.

Telus Milestone users who have been waiting so patiently for their 2.1 update are in luck today. Telus and Motorola have pushed out the software update, though this won’t be coming in an OTA (over the air) fashion. Instead users can grab it through Motorola’s website at this link. Just select your carrier (Telus) and your device (Milestone) to download the update. Once downloaded, users will need to link up their Milestone via micro USB cable and then proceed with the update. Hit up the full changelog after the break, and if you are a Telus Milestone user and grab the update, make sure to drop a comment with your results.
Two big stories from Gizmodo for all your VZW Droid users; first, details about the Android 2.1 update emerge and now, a tentative release date.
According to the article, 2.1 could start rolling out OTA as soon as tomorrow bringing with it things like pinch-to-zoom in the browser, gallery and Google Maps, voice-to-text entry and free Yahoo email support.
Of course, there’s much more to this update. To see the full list, click here.Follow me on twitter
Well well well. What do we have here? After being told that live wallpapers would not be incorporated in the Droid’s 2.1 update chances looked unfavorable that the Droid would ever be getting the flashy backdrops. That is until today, because a new build of the Droid’s upcoming 2.1 update was leaked over at droid life and happened to come packed with just this feature. The build seems to run fairly smoothly considering it’s still a prerelease. However there are only three homescreens instead of the five screens that will hopefully come in the final build. Just because the build receives the Nexus One’s live wallpapers, doesn’t mean you should expect that it will get the spiffy 3D launcher of the Nexus.
