Here is my list of improvements from 4.0.2 to 4.1. Please feel free to confirm/deny any of this and add any other improvements you find. With others input, we can make this the complete list and add it to Marky's FAQ.
(Note: i'm comparing from a 7290)
a) Themes! Now you can download and actually use themes! (search this forum for the theme thread)
b) FASTER! Yes, that's right! Applications now run faster! Try Google Maps (Google Local Mobile) from http://google.com/glm
. I find that it is 15-20% faster loading and scrolling. With 4.1 i can scroll the maps and it loads almost in real-time. 4.0.2 did not do this (too many pauses and waiting for downloads)
I believe this is mostly increased download speed, but i could be wrong. Need to prove with benchmarks.
c) Web browser is signifigantly updated! Too many things to mention here..
d) Composing e-mail changes:
When you compose a message, start typing in the To: field and it will automatically pick from your addressbook , very similar to what you find as 'autocomplete' in Outlook. .
e) Snooze option for Tasks/Calendar! (see Options menu) Finally! what took them so long..
f) NEW bluetooth profiles:
(Above adds Wireless PIM sync over Bluetooth! works on 7290!)
g) Updated version of Brickbreaker..
