    Has anyone noticed this?

    On my old iphone whenever i was walking and i was viewing it in portrait mode and dropped my hands down to my side the screen would adjust to landscape....sometimes this was annoying because when you brought back up to look at you would have to wait for it to rotate.


    Now give this a try view a page in landscape or portrait while walking like your reading it and observe what happens when you put your hands down to your side as you walk....the page will not rotate...in fact it will not change until you come to complete stop.

    I like this little feature because on my old iphone reading a page while walking would be difficult because the accelerometer was so sensitive.

    I just tried that on my original iPhone upgraded to 2.0 and it doesn't rotate while in motion with hands down.

    I think it may be because of 2.0.
