Android – first look


Mobile-review have posted a great preview of Google's Android. Very interestng stuff and worth checking out. Here is the final conclusion.

Conclusion
We were thrilled to check out this emulator, so as to assess the abilities of the new platform. Regrettably, there are no operational applications available as yet, so our take on it was skin-deep. Among the prospective amenities of the Android are its touch-sensitive display that can be handled with fingers alone, Google Maps and phonebook. We were a little puzzled by the browser, however. But let’s not forget that this is only the first demo of the OS, so we will reserve our final judgment until first Android-based devices arrive. One thing is for sure, though: most contemporary approaches to device management and interface layout have been implemented into the system’s software, which is obviously a good thing.
