3. Widgets
At first, I didn't really see the need for Widgets. But after playing around, it is hard to imagine using a smartphone without them.

Just like Windows Mobile 7's tiles, you can set up a page with your Google Voice, RSS, Twitter and Facebook streams and organize them any way you want. It makes a much better 'mission control' screen than you can get on the iPhone, which only lets you see apps and notifications.
