    Hm, I've enabled the 3D effect in Pro Plus but it's kinda buggy. Whenever I scroll up it sometimes gets caught which is well annoying.
    Works flawlessly on my Hero :unsure:

    Used Launcher Pro for all but 1 minute and it was laggy when going between homescreens, so I switched back to sense.

    Did you even let it load fully?
    Launcher Pro is far smoother than Sense, not that I don't love Sense or anything.

    Yeah I probably didn't give it time to settle. I've been using swype, not sure if I should change back to Sense keyboard, which is pretty good tbh. Swype is just more fun to use.

    The LG Optimus 2X is coming in January. That's the fastest I've seen a phone (Nexus S) go out of date. Single core? phhht.. lol This is gonna be a beast of a phone and looks well designed too.

    I used it for a while, it's surprisingly good but but I found Smart Keyboard pro to be a lot better....

    Around £470 is a guesstimate based on pre-orders in Europe. Anything sub £500 for this beast is very good, undercutting the good old iPhone.

    The UI is similar to the Samsung ones (dunno if LG always used it or whatever) but it comes with 2.2? I would have thought an update would be imminent after launch surely?

    Yeah that's a bit odd but i would expect it to get an update. I'd be happy with 2.2; the changes are minor and it will be a blazingly fast device. I'm surprised it's arrived so early! Let's see which networks get it.

    If it's root and vanillaable then I may just consider it.

    Isn't the Nexus one like one of the few phones that you can have Vanilla Android on?

    It's one of the few that come with Vanilla on it, but if you can root it, you can probably Vanilla it.

    I know. I never get round to changing them, and I am very fussy when it comes to such things. It would take me hours to find some I like.

    I don't have a clue what you are on about :sad:

    Vanilla is Android how Google originally intend it to be (what runs on the Nexus One/S. HTC/Samsung/LG etc etc all add things (skins/apps/etc), I personally do not like what LG has decided to do to their flavoured ROM hence why I want to root and install Vanilla on it :erm:
