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.

I, on the other hand, eagerly await this phone coming to T-Mobile USA. I want a smartphone that can replace my current phone and my MP3 player (must support Ogg Vorbis) and with a decent camera to boot; Droid is the best available right now* but I can't stomach Verizon's smartphone data plans.

Since I have to get phone and wireless service from SOMEONE, I'd prefer it to be T-Mobile, I already have them, like them, and their data plans look much better. I'm sure it'll be somewhere around $250-$300 subsidized, but that's a lot easier to swallow if it's not backed up by quite as bad a month-to-month plan.

*I also await the Nokia N900 if offered. Keyboard and Debian ARMEL compatibility means it'll do whatever I want.

Unless what you want is to make a regular phone call! j/k

This phone will probably NOT be available from Verizon.
Why?
The deal about search engines between Microsoft & Verizon is why. As if Google will let their branded phone be forced to use Bling as a search engine. Yeah Right.

At least we don't have that sort of lock in on this side of the pond. I was pondering getting an iPhone but I may well wait a while and see if I can get this on a decent plan. I don't need data as like another poster here says, WiFi is available nearly everywhere I go. If I truly need data, I'll plug my 3G dongle into my Netbook.
