Google Multitouch and touchscreens really are all the rage these days, especially in mobile devices. Apple's iPhone set the bar, and now it's up to the rest to either catch up to Apple, or outdo them. Google is trying just that with its Android mobile phone operating system, and it has demoed the capabilities of its new mobile phone operating system.

Don't complain yet. The US most certainly gets the shaft on features and cost. Multiply that by two, or three, and you'll see the shaft Australia gets.

Not to mention Canada. While one of the two major wireless carriers here (Rogers) is an AT&T partner, the iPhone is still not available "up north" - and many suspect that's because of the ridiculous rates that both Rogers and Telus charge for data transfer (you can get better rates in nearly all of Europe and Asia, and much of Africa & the Mid-East).

Last time I personally checked, the "best" data transfer plan that Rogers offered was 100MB/month for $120/month.

From seeing all those videos of the fifty page iPhone bills from AT&T, the iPhone would gobble up a hundred megabytes in a week, never mind a month.
