I'm a director of telecommunications at a university. I'm interested in how android in a smart phone might help me do my job more effectively. That means I'll need some IT tools like a cisco ipsec vpn, ssh, vnc, maybe a softphone for asterisk, stuff like that. So here we go, off to the races... I'm already a google freak -- I imagine google integration with an OS built by google will be pretty good. Looking forward ot finding out. I curently run a blackberry 8330 which is OK, but I'm looking forward to some better tools. I have chosen to avoid the iphone. I like linux -- especially ubuntu for a daily driver, I believe apple took a big step in the right direction when they went the *nix route -- not a bad OS, I tolerate windows and use it when I must -- so far 7 seems OK. Thanks for being here, I already learned about connectbot via this wonderful forum.
