After a few hours of being unable to post I am finally free to babble endlessly! My girlfriend is getting the backflip (read plenty of people dislike it but, hey its the only at&t phone with a discount..) I am a comp sci major in college so I hope to begin programming for the android os relatively soon . I am hoping to in the future get a droid based device myself. So far the HTC tattoo looks interesting.. however being in college, the backflip seems useful if for no other reason streaming all my emails straight to my phone.. Then again my parents haven't agreed to a data package yet so I'm not holding my breath. Either way I'm glad to be here and I've seen what the iphone has done over the last few years because it had a strong developer base.. So I am hoping android will throttle past anything Iphone has done because, Development is encouraged. Also so far I'm pretty happy with the near instantaneous response from the guys moderating these forums. Once i emailed my problem it was fixed instantaneously.
