Android is Here - Just one week to go

It seems Android's rumored delays were nothing but just that: rumors.

Because the first Android phone will be out next week!

It seems like it was yesterday when I started talking about this, but indeed those first indications were quite accurate. And just 4 months ago, people were already drooling all over those HTC Android demos.

I really didn't think they would be able to pull it off this quickly. In fact, I decided to buy the iPhone 3G when it was launched simply because I thought Android phones would be at least 6-8 months away.
Guess I was wrong... :)

It will be quite interesting to watch how the public will react to this new platform.

Personally, I'm all in for the Android platform - sure we'll be expected to face some first generation bugs (just take a look at all the problems the iPhone had to face in this second coming!) but one year from now I bet Android will be one of the major platforms for smartphones.

Even though I'm happy with the iPhone - there are a lot of issues that keep reminding me why I love an open-source community better. Things like those unexplicable removed or non-approved Apps (netshare, podcaster, etc.)

I'll give it a couple more months... but I have no doubt I'll get an Android phone sooner rather than later.
