- Google program manager Leslie Hawthorne kicked things off with: "Stuck in mass of traffic leaving work post last all hands of 2009. ZOMG we had fireworks and we all got the new Google phone. It's beautiful."
- CNET's Jason Howell says he saw it, HTC did the hardware, it's unlocked and a buttload of Google employees got them this week.
- And from Great White Snark: A friend from Google showed me the new Android 2.1 phone from HTC coming out in Jan. A sexy beast. Like an iPhone on beautifying steroids.
So hold on to your hats, folks. We've plopped a little Twitter search after the break, so you can waste what's left of your weekend waiting to see what else is said about the Google phone. Enjoy.
