Google The past few weeks the entire internet has been going bonkers over the Google phone, yet another in a long line of Android phones that has everyone's knickers in twists. Up until now we had to go by small photos and Twitter messages from Google employees, but now we have full specifications, a hands-on, and video.

Good

Good, as an iPhone 3GS owner, I've been desperately looking for an alternative so I can get away from AT&T.

However, every other phone I've spent some time using has been:
* much slower
* had a horrible UI (by comparison)
* web browser wasn't as good

The Droid in particular left me underwhelmed as it was:
* tied to Verizon
* was substantially, noticeably less responsive than my 3GS

If Google can put out an unlocked phone that I can use with any carrier, and that is speedy and polished as the iPhone 3GS, I'll buy one. Otherwise, I'll stick with the 3GS for now since (other than AT&T) I have no real complaints about it.

The much-vaunted multi-tasking of the Droid is worthless to me as the only multi-tasking I need is the ability to open apps and browse while on a phone call, which I can do right now.
