Notable new features in Android 2.0 make communication with your family, friends, and colleagues a breeze. You can now manage multiple e-mail accounts through your device, including Web-based and Exchange addresses (left image). Android 2.0 also synchronizes all of your contacts from these accounts and lists them in a simplified view called Quick Contact (middle image). Quick Contact creates a menu bar with easy-to-read icons that show your contacts' communication modes (e-mail, IM, text message, and so on). You simply tap on your contacts photo (pulled from Facebook), and the bar pops up, whether you are in your contact list, in e-mail, or even in your calendar. You can also view all of your e-mail accounts in a combined view on one page (right image).
