Google "We're happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions. Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite." Excellent acquisition - Quickoffice has always been a fine product, and this gives Google instant access to a wide array of native mobile office applications. Crazy nobody else ever picked these guys and girls up. Also, if Google makes Quickoffice available for free, we can enjoy yet another "Google is competing unfairly by not charging customers money for products"-whine-a-thon. That alone is worth it.

I love the keyboard on my phone (Xperia Pro), especially when in an SSH session. There's no way I'd ever "upgrade" to a phone without a hardware keyboard.

I'm currently looking at the Motorola Droid 4 as a possible upgrade, as it has the most "normal" keyboard layout (including a number row and proper symbols above the numbers).
