    Got a gmail account already and will read the thread when phone comes. Is there a guide to Android or the Desire capabilities anywhere?

    Take a look at the screenies thread and start to work out what widgets and apps appeal to you. There are literally thousands and thousands of the things and to begin with it can be like trying to chose a parking spot in an empty car park.

    It is a Google oriented phone, almost everything runs through a Google account.

    And to the OP, I really hope yours does arrive because mine certainly did NOT come when they said it would!!

    Simply play around with it and enjoy. You will neither appreciate or understand the os (& its drawbacks) if you solely go by what is recommended by others
