I sold my Tosa a while ago to get a combined phone/PDA (it's an LG Incite, I like it alot, but it's Windows Mobile) (bad choice, by the way, I desperately miss it) and my heart is aching for embedded linux. I haven't thought much at all about Android because I'm not a google fanboy. I use www.google.com because it is powerful and simple, I use gmail because it is well organized and effective. I certainly don't make a point of loving the company.

But the Motorola Droid has really piqued my interest (it is certainly sexy hardware) as an embedded linux device. Does anyone here have the Droid, (or even a different Android phone) that can speak to the experience? How powerful is it as a linux platform? How modifiable is the distribution/hardware? Would you recommend an Android Phone?

Thanks,
AeroSigma

PS- Since I'm on AT&T here in the US, the CDMA(Verison) 'DROID' won't work for me. The "MILESTONE' is a GSM(AT&T/T-Mobile) version of the same phone. Is there anyone in Germany or Italy that would be willing to/capable of exporting the phone for me?

thanks for that review. it definitely seems android has a way to go, and it does seem there's hardware problems (or driver issues) too.

I'm beginning to like the netwalker more and more. hmm, if only someone's found a way to implant a 3G modem :-)
