    Sounds pretty interesting to me. Not so thrilled about granting google rights to commercially exploit any changes made to it but I still think we will be seeing a lot of interesting features in the near future.

    I've read some reviews concerning Android and the G1 Mobile Phone that is currently using it. And I have to say, some of these reviewers seem to have totally missed the point of Android. I keep reading that a downside to the G1/Android is the lacking Exnchange Syncing features found most other Smartphones/Iphone. Yet...if I recall (and I will do some digging for the article) someone has already released a 3rd Party App on the Andorid Marketplace that will enable the phone to sync Outlook contacts.

    Please, whoever at Bit-Tech does a review on a smartphone releasing over in Europe with Android, remember that what the phone may lack out of the box, might potentially have available for downloaded already by a 3rd Party Developer.
