android update

my HTC Hero finally has the Android 2.1 update.

Holy moley, but it's good. The phone feels nice and zippy, and there are some UI enhancements which are nice.

But it's the apps that I was interested in. Kindle for Android, Google Maps, Google Goggles, etc.

Google Goggles is astonishing. Take a photo of a dvd, and it scans it, recognises what it is, and offers you shopping, imdb or the wikipedia page for the film.

Like... whoa.

google maps also now has turn-by-turn navigation! woo! free satnav!
