It’s all kicking off with Android

So tomorrow is the big day.

We’ll finally find out what Google, HTC — and to an extent, T-Mobile — have been up to.

The rumours are everywhere.

At what point will Google become it’s own MNO or MNVO? Why should it bother. Leave the wires, plugs and network nonsense to the bit-pipe mobile operators and take command of the mobile desktop.

There will be inevitable comparisons to the iPhone although I doubt the HTC device will be anywhere near as swish.

HTC, freed from the constraints of a bloated and hugely annoying Windows Mobile, should have run riot with Android. At least, that’s what I hope. I’m expecting fast, reliable, excellent UI. I am expecting Google integrated across the device. Properly. Maps, contacts, Gtalk, News, the whole shebang.

The actual news will be with us soon. And we’ll bring you our viewpoint quicker than you can say Google Maps Rocks.

We would, obviously, be in the States ready to purchase one of the first. If it wasn’t supplied on the T-Mobile USA network. You have to give your right arm and both legs to sign-up to a T-Mobile USA contract, as I discovered in San Francisco this year.

I’ll definitely get one. Whenever it’s humanely possible.

Will you?

I have been on the fence about the (now known as) G1 for a while now. I'll probably wait to see what tomorrow brings, and what the first reviews have to say — but given that T-Mo has (finally) just activated 3G in my area, and that this phone looks so promising… I'll probably end up getting one yes.
