Default New Android 2.2 Features

New features rolled out today for those lucky enough to have Android 2.2.

* Voice Search

* Chrome2Phone

* New TweetDeck Beta

Chrome to Phone works awesome and it's so easy to setup. TweetDeck is pretty rockin too. Haven't tried Voice Search yet.

I just tried some of the voice controls and it works really really good. Sent a text to my wife while getting some weird stares from my co-workers lol.

Is there a list somewhere of iPhone apps that work with Android or do most work?

I am trying to get my grubby hands on a Streak

If I do, I might give up my iPhone and root and run 2.2 on that sucker

If you have an old T-Mobile G1 phone, you can custom flash the ROM to Froyo. Works really well too! You get all the fun gadgets of the Nexus 1, however the live wallpapers are a bit sluggish. I'm currently looking for a used white G1 in good condition, which is proving quite difficult. :P

Yea I was looking into one of those phones like yours but I found out they don't play Tic Tac Toe which is a must these days.
Also the lack of an mp3 player and only an 8 track player on it helped me make my decision against it.

So playing Connect 4 wasn;t enough to keep you interested?
