    “Stream music from PC to phone”
    “Purchase music/apps on android market and push directly to device Over The Air”
    – I’m pretty sure both these features were for a future version of Android after Froyo. Certainly the different Music app interface that was demoed in the keynote is not present in Froyo.

    I noticed that Google Talk app no longer has settings for the refresh interval (the shortest was a brutally long 5 minutes); I’m assuming that Google Talk app uses the c2dm stuff now.

    I wonder if a section listing things we lost would be appropriate. I did notice that the .com button was now missing from the keyboard.

    About better exchange support. I agree on “not upto the mark” – the feature I miss most is ability to search for contacts phone numbers…

    On the list of things fixed is the BT handsfree phone issue. (Some cars have BT phone capability. When you start the car, if the phone has been paired with it, and on and BT enabled, it connects automatically to the car, downloads the address book, and from then behaves as you would expect a handsfree phone to).

    Problem with Nexus 1 is that it does not work with many cars

    Froyo is supposed to “provide greater compatibility for BT car kits”.

    Anyoue any experience here?

    Another thing fixed – if you are watching a youtube video, and switch to a different app/home screen, the video is paused at its location. Earlier, if you switched back to youtube, you would see the screen with the list of videos.

    +1 on this. Wish the .com button wasn’t removed.
