Who cares about user's privacy? I won't have any secret of interest for them. So come on Google, you make our life easier!

I bet you guys, including myself of course, do not want to carry that bulky and gigantic device around. Remind me again that it is really a phone, regardless of the fact that it is a prototype. To me, creating a new OS hinders the process of developing and enriching new features of the existing platforms. Could Google do a clear bit of selling point to have this Android? Man, honestly speaking, the name sounds too plain containing no incentive to migrate to.

All in all, let's wait and see. Nokia will definitely piss those Android-alliances off by introducing "Morph", which is nano-technology based mobile phone. It is incredibly impressive to own such device in the very near future. haha c u Android

the most important thing is that there is a big huge base of developers who are working for symbian and WM. Its like the litmus test for android for woing them towards this platform. Google with is capitalist motives had made so many people not using its products for privacy reasons. Lets see how the developer base responds to it.

generally it looks cool with speed and responsiveness but hopefully they could tweak up the ui but still looks typical google

It is rumored thet the phone manufacturers that will utilize the Android OS would be LG Electronice, HTC, and everyone's most hated company, Motorola. The last company will definitely use the Android so that it would shut those people up who say that Motorola phones suck in the software side. Prepare to have a RAZR with Android, people.

" why is it that some people on here lack the ability to write a single cohesive sentence, spell words correctly, or use grammar properly? "

The same reason you didn't...You need a capital at the beginning of the sentence (Why)and it should be or "use proper grammar".

Just stick to commenting.

This operating system seems very capable in all terms. I would love to see that quake game on a handset such as nokia-ngage or something similar. I believe it oculd be very revolutionary and user friendly.
