looks like it'll be a linux software suite, I guess with a standard set of base apps.

coverage here: at the BBC

Engadget:
coverage of announcement
press release/

Android itself:
developers - can't download anything yet

very interesting... so, who will be first to have a proper Google linux smartphone - I reckon Motorola because they've already had a few models out which are linux based (using QT as their graphical toolkit), or will OpenMoko produce a usable release first? Will OpenMoko be googlephone compatible?

the future will be quite interesting!

I think Nokia might be in the running too. Don't forget their Internet Tablets run Linux, and a forth-coming model will be Wi-Max enabled. They also seem to be cross-branding their more advanced phones and their tablets by refering to them both as 'N-Series'.
