OTA Update to Fix Moto Droid Camera in Weeks
Now that Google has offered the new SDKs for Android 2.0.1 and 1.6, Verizon Wireless says that owners of the Motorola Droid (which runs Android 2.0) should expect their devices to automatically update over the air in the coming weeks. The update will primarily fix the camera's autofocus capability and the phone's voice reception. Owners will need to accept the update when it is pushed to their phone, which will then download and install itself. Verizon didn't say exactly when the update will be pushed over the air.

Should I wait for this update?
Does anyone know if this fix that is coming will stop programs from starting and running in the background, even though I have not opened them? The corporate calendar and Google Talk service seem to always be running, and I do not use either of them.
I never noticed that with my Moto Droid, had some programs start running by themselves but a task killer app would take care of them.
