    Default Firmware 2.2 Hidden Features
    In the recent Firmware 2.2 seeded to developers there are a few very interesting hidden features:
    • A switch to turn off the loved or loathed auto correction. Maybe now your lols wont turn in to LOLS.



    • Google Street view. This is one of my favorite features of google maps. Street View is just neat. Now on the iPhone Google Street View provides 360 panoramic street-level views and allows users to view parts of selected cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas at ground level.
    • Japanese emoji icons. These aren't used much here in the US as far as I know but are very popular in Japan. They are little icons to add to messages and are also included in 2.2 which may help Japanese iPhone sales.

    Sweet. People keep complaining that I can't spell, and that I constantly write "duck" in my text messages...

    Forget shutting off auto correct, how about editing / adding our own?

    EXACTLY!! Autocorrect definitely helps me a lot, but it gets frustrating when it refuses to recognize that im constantly keep have to respell certain words. I think that some words are never changed, no matter how many times you change it around

    google street view? that is going to be so badass. i really wish they would let us edit the auto-correction. i dont think i could live with it turned off, but it would be nice to not have to edit words when the auto-correct to "duck" or "LOL". still waiting for copy & paste!

    are these "emojicons" like little images, like teeny PNGs? if that's the case and we can send them in text messages, shouldn't we be able to send images?

    the google streetview was kinda interesting, but the EMO icons will only work with other mobiles that supports them, and as far as i know.... ok then... i belive there are not so many mobiles supporting this chinese smiley fanatic....
