While any update is usually a good update, the new software that'll be heading out to the Marauder looks like it really ought to improve device's user experience thanks to the additions of a conversation view and combined inbox for email and the Chrome browser. How many of you have a DROID RAZR HD/MAXX HD or Marauder that you call your daily driver?

David March I avoid Google products. They tend to be beta. No offense android dog. I know you love to compare dual and quad core processors five times a day on your site. Certainly a fool proof strategy for long term relevance.

Rúben Soares
Rúben Soares Chrome tends to be really unstable.. One update and it's great then it updates and becomes terribly slow... I really really love the the aspect and experience of using it, but it's got to speed up. Using dolphin for now. and also lighting browser plus, not very popular but it's really fast and still supports flash :)
