New Google Voice With Widget Extracted from G2 ROM
With the recent news of the HTC Vision aka G2, and the even more recent news of the G2 Test ROM leak, XDA forum member MvP77 has pulled the new Google Voice (with widget), from the leaked ROM.
With news that Google will be implementing call integration into Gmail, the inclusion of this widget seems more significant. The widget let’s you check your GV balance, settings and toggle on and off.
XDA members have reported that the widget is working on their Android devices, however if you are running a Sense ROM, then the phone button will not work. This is because the test ROM is based upon stock FroYo. Unfortunately, it’s not a simple case of extracting and then installing the stock FroYo dialer into a Sense build, since the Sense dialer is embedded in the Sense frameworks.
To download the apk, head on over to the forum thread.

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG.
