    Get a Palm Pre then. No one has one of those. Not saying it's good, just that I've never seen any one with one.

    havent you had a google one? and i have no experience with a hero, none of my mates have one..

    i dont wana look like a retard lol.

    Hmm also considering a nokia 8800 arte.

    Looking forward to trying out an Android phone in the flesh myself, having used the emulator for a month it seems a pretty nice straightforward UI and device, personally I think the way the SDKs have been made Android will ultimately have many useful (probably free) apps that aren't available on the iPhone - but thats obviously a way off yet...
