We see the Dell Aero's software and kind of wish we hadn't ...
Remember the Dell Aero Android smartphone? The one we were allowed to fondle but not turn on at CTIA? (And the one that, yes, can't run unsigned apps?) Well, the guys at Engadget managed to get their hands on a live one. And from what we've seen, they can have it.
We're not at all against putting a good skin on top of Android, but what Josh shows us doesn't look anything like a good skin on top of Android -- especially that keyboard. Basically it's some rather sleek (and almost sexy hardware), with a UI that makes us wonder (yet again) why some companies can't leave well enough alone. [Engadget]
(Oh, and Phil's alternate post, in a single sentence: "OK, now it's crippled.")

But its not looking so good. If the HTC phone sucks too, then ill plunk down for Nexus One. Thanks guys!
webos - delayed
wm7s - not until 4Q & currently half baked conclusion - buy a Nexus One (ok. some of you said get a new carrier) I did. It arrived last Thursday. I'm not looking back. In my 4 days with android I can't imagine how you can have an android phone without gmail and google maps. The google services are the center point of the whole freaking phone. The nexus one is awesome. It is unadulterated android that at&t will never soil.
-TMOBILE has terrible customer service and I got fed up
-AT&T was bringing out Android devices Now we are two out of 5 on the market, and they both... suck. My Hubby got a backflip. It was enough of an Android device for him, but not for me, its a downgrade from my 2yr old rooted & cyanogen modded G-1. When we walked in to the store to buy his, we asked about android and got directed to the iPhone. I adamantly refused, and the rep showed me the Backflip model. He knew nothing about it. Not one thing about android, or what version it was running or anything.
