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

coverage here: at the BBC

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!

> angstrom is loosely based on debian, in fact, they could probably wrapper ipkg with a dpkg command which translated the commands and it'd be hard to notice.

my guess is that whether it is hard to notice depends strongly on the noticer.
