This is the last time you will hear from me about Android on the HD2 (unless something big happens between now and Aug). It seems like its a daily thing for the hard working Android porters to bring improvements to their software and this time we have a lot of new things that I find important. The changes now include camera, Ubuntu, load time, and more.
XDA admin Savitus has seen the changes and even went on to make a new forum to have Android development all homed there.
Changes after the break:
