This is Google Android 2.0 "Eclair", which doesn't even have a formal due date yet.

• The whole system feels much faster, especially the browser. Apparently it renders about as fast as the 3GS's, though part of that could be down to the hardware (What is it, BG?)
• The browser also gets double-tap-to-zoom (some current ROMs already come with this)
• Facebook friends are integrated right into the contacts system
• Voice control has been scattered through the whole system, and even gets its own dedicated dashboard
• There's an upgraded version of Google Maps, with layer support
• Native MS Exchange support
• A unified email inbox, for joining multiple accounts
• A YouTube homescreen widget, which enables two-click uploads
• A "Car Home" app offers larger shortcuts for functions you might need while driving, as well as easy access to voice control

Verizon is going to find some restriction to ruin it all, and it looks like a regular linux desktop almost.

Saw this last night during The Simpsons on Fox,
Wonder if it is relevant to this thread.

That commercial bashes everything that is wrong with the "almighty" iPhone.
Probably one of my favorite commercials ever.
I'll definitely look at this phone once it comes out.
