Try Froyo on your PC
Ok we have now Gingerbread around for our devices, but what about testing Froyo on your computer? XDA member tomlogan1 let us know about a way to do it, of course some coding language knowledge is needed but nothing that will completely confuse you. You will need to download VMware, a desktop virtualization software that will let you install Froyo on your PC.
You can try this to show off with your friends but not as a replacement for your every day OS. This is no doubt fun to try. Please leave feed back whether it is working or not for you.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
