Is this possible? I hate having to keep my phone held upright while on my homescreen, is there anyway to let the phone automatically go into landscape mode when you turn it and hold it as if the gamepad is out? Yes i know there are other programs you can get to change your homescreen which allow this but i don't really want to do that. Help.

Update:

I noticed today on IGN they were doing a preview on the Play and the phone he was using supported landscape mode on the home screen. How is this possible? Is it because it's a new version of the software on the American phones?

Here's the link

The ericsson launcher dosent support landscape, generally only devices with a h/w keyboard have stock launchers that support landscape

THE SE launcher is actually called "home" and has nothing to do with timescape.
