Heh agreed. I can't wait until the accessibility features of Android get up to scratch and I can move off the iPhone. Still, not sure I'd want my phone updating completely automatically, at least ask me first in case it's not convenient at that particular moment. Is this what Android does, at least for system updates? Non-critical minor updates can be done automatically but nothing that requires an os restart, for that I want confirmation. Also, not sure if any Android phones support the lower 850 mhz 3g band, anyone know? I know the Nexus 1 doesn't.

They are on there way, engadget posted about a new Nexus one model that supports 850 MHz band as well.

I was under the impression the Milestone (aka the Droid) was a CDMA phone. Are there GSM versions as well?
