Finally a phone with the potential to kill the iphone. I saw this phone at the trade show its a sweet interface. Unfortunatly the phone is coming out in the UK in July, and sometime later in 2009 for the US version. I am definatly going to go for this phone. I was sold as soon I was able to pick it up. It has a solid feel, and looks like the next generation of touch screens. The interface is very quick, and moving between a conversation, contact, and email was so smooth.

I'm not going to compare it to the iPhone because they are very different animals, all I have to say is that Android's community support is phenomenal, it's the reason I got the G1 and so far I'm stoked with the way things are going.

The phone/OS hasn't been out for a year and look where we are at already; almost every user/community request has been answered or is being worked on; either officially or by the community itself, the point is that it's a huge open source success.

happy to see a phone like the HTC Hero coming to the U.S. Market, already found forum for it at http://www.HTC-Hero.com let's get some discussions going guys.

How hard could it be if each mobile company has phones with each of the features seperate and yet can't integrate them into one decent package.
I was so sure the Nokia N97 wouldn't dissapoint. And yet, it's lacking in some of the features. What a let-down. It's an amazing phone by itself and gets the job done really good, but, it's not the powerhouse that I expected it to be like the N95...

Seems like we have something WAY better than the Iphone (considering the OS and that its maker is HTC)
