Smooth as an Android's Bottom

Google's Android smartphone will be released today exclusively on the T-Mobile device, the HTC-G1 (also refered to as the HTC-Dream).  Engadget has your up to date coverage on their site from the official launch event.  

So far, this is shaping up to be a pretty interesting piece of tech and competition is always good.  I feel that more newcomers will keep Apple on their heels, unlike what happened when the iPod came out and there was really no other competition.
Cellphones are a tricky thing since there are so many user groups involved.  With the amount of competition in the global marketplace, it's a hard battle for a start up (even for Google, the golden-boy of tech) to make headway.  Although their philosophy of open source platforms and developer support is being translated to the Android OS, only time will tell if developers are able to fully utilize it to its full potential.  More to come as reviews and information becomes available.
