Earlier today, my Sidekick notified me of a new over-the-air update; now seeing as it will keep pestering you until you update and I'm the "ooh new and flash!" sort of person, I let it go and install the update. I've only been poking at the thing a little bit, but I can already say that v2.3 is definitely a good update, in more than just superficial ways. A lot of little things have changed and some biggish things have changed. I expect there's some stuff I haven't seen yet and so far everything's good. Here's a quick run-down of some of the changes I've seen:
- AOL Instant Messenger - Added buddy icon support. Away messages now appear on buddy list. Still no profile support.
- Phone - Icon has changed; first and least impressive thing I've noticed.
- Address Book - Added Instant Messaging field, which pleases me immensely and means I'll have to spend some time with my address book in the near future.
- Camera - New loading screen instead of just freezing up for a few moments with the word loading overlaid, reassuring and good improvement. Better picture quality, maybe, I'm not sure but it seems to be taking slightly better photos, if it's a placebo, oh well, if it's real, HOT!
