Sink me, Google put the apps on the phone I want

I know a lot of tech types are going to get mad at me because it’s not fashionable to be a Google fan right now, but I want one of these Androids! I can’t help myself and nor can I explain it. But my cell contract will soon be up and I will be Gmailing, mapping and searching with the best of them as soon as I can get this device. I can see a couple of my tech genius friends' faces frowning as they read this. Please don't hold my enthusiasm against me for wanting this phone (and please continue to advise me for free on all matters related to security and technology).

The Google Blog says more than 1,700 applications were developed and though they're on other popular phones, the Android will have them too.

Frankly, if the phone works as well as the Google applications I have on my pc, I’ll be a happy camper. And to those dear ones who I know will assail me for publicly exhibiting my enthusiasm, I will be honest. Google-body and I definitely differ on our politics, but this company has really fulfilled an American vision—quality, diversification and, considering most everything is free to the consumer, pretty good support (mainly in the form of tutorials and message boards I admit).

I figure if you’re going to complain about Google, do whatever the guy who invented those dead-fish-ugly croc shoes did. Build a better pair of shoes. And if they're really comfortable and durable, you'll sell a million of them. I can’t place a photo here—there wasn’t one on the website. But there’s a video at the Google blog. And please note, I don't do paid reviews. But when I get excited about a product, I write about it. And if you've got a product, please I am begging you do not mail it to me, especially if it is a book.

But I can't wait to get an Android. Me and my Android. Has a nice ring.
