    Can anyone tell me if you can Read AND write in Google docs? I'm a writer and work with docs in a lot of remote locations, so being able to use the G1 to help on those first drafts would be a great boon to my process.

    My local T-Mobile is getting 35 on Wednesday, hopefully I'll be able to snag a bronze one.

    You mean brown?

    As for the Google Docs, I dunno.
    I surely hope so.
    A quick search of these forums should reveal something for you.

    Well, I installed the SDK and tried it for myself. It doesn't Just reads or deletes them, which is more than the iPhone can do. (only reads)

    Well, I do mean brown, but I was at Tmobile and the rep said Bronze and was holding tickets for Black and Bronze (unless his saying "bronze" made me think I was reading "bronze" when the ticket really said "brown."

    Anyway, thanks. Maybe I'll write a writing app for it. Ha!

    "It doesn't Just reads or deletes them" = we can edit GDocs? save them? create new?

    If so, ****EN AWESOME!
    :)

    I halfway changed my mind about my order. Requested black, and though ... hhmm, the brown would look nice, considering all the topics I read, everyone was saying they were going for black.

    No, at least with the current version, Android can only read, them. I must be more scatterbrained than I thought. I can't find the Delete button that I thought I was seeing on it last night. So you can only read Google Docs.

    I did just have a baby 3 weeks ago and I'm missing some incredible amounts of sleep.

    There may not be a GDocs application on the G1 for awhile.....but, this is an internet-optimized phone, so you should be able to just go to google docs and use it over the internet. At least that's my guess.
