If You Could Design The Droid 2 What Would You Change?

A few threads have appeared here on the forum about a new Droid. Since the Droid was just introduced less than three months ago, I just don't think any of these changes are going to occur right away. However, if Motorola called you up and said design the Droid II, what would you change? IMO, the phone is pretty good right now. The one physical feature I don't like are how the keys at the bottom of the screen are so sensitive. A number of times I've shifted my hand, and the search screen will pop up. Or, the phone will go back a screen. The kicker is, I've not touched the keys. My fingers or hand have almost touched the key, but the action is done anyway. Perhaps I would have a very short time delay for those buttons. Next change, is a software related one. The ability to voice dial with a bluetooth headset. The fact this phone does not offer this basic function is surprising. Lastly, and a very minor point, offer the phone in a choice of finishes, like brushed aluminum or stainless steel in addition to the current treatment.

@linmk2,
I would expand the home pages to an option from 4 to 7 (instead of 3) and put the voice recognition across programs like texting. I would also include a basic "notepad" or word processor (powered by speech) so we can save/attach files for sending. Wouldn't it be great to compose by voice, send it to our e-mail address and then import it to Word or Open Office for printing?

Raise the keys slightly on the slider keyboard and sacrifice another 1mm thickness.

@linmk2,
I love the Droid as is, and have zero regrets. However, if I were to be offered such an honor, I would:

Make the slider keyboard a dedicated touch screen keyboard.
Make both the touch screen and the touch keyboard sensitivity user-adjustable.
Make the touch screen stylus capable.
Improve the microphone.
Make the speaker grill on the back thicker to increase durability.
Replace the stock music player with one that includes music, photo & video files.
Reconfigure the 3.5mm jack so that a microphone could be inserted for use in lecture recording type apps.
Incorporate a tazer into the top with low profile electrodes. (-Purely a "just in case" type of thing.)

@linmk2,
I would overhaul the freaking battery door,maybe a release switch. I felt like a douche whipping out my droid to show how much better it was than an iphone and the freaking battery door fell off! Other than that i would probably improve the camera lens as well maybe one of them carl zies lenses
