    Just wondering what kind of people are buying the G1/Android. I can see it being mostly computer nerdos like myself.

    /raises hand.

    Although, I probably won't go Android until Verizon takes the plunge.

    :(

    You've got to be at least a little nerdy to have even heard of the G1 (or be a close reader of the Technology section of the WSJ, I guess).

    You average consumer isn't going to care about a phone that none of their friends have and isn't in any ads... yet.

    Thats true. I posted about it a while ago when i pre-ordered my G1 on a local car forum I'm on. They frequently talk about new phones/technology etc. When i posted about the G1 i got 0 replies, lol.

    Wonder why T-Mobile is keeping this on the D/L. I've seen commercials on TV already for the Blackberry storm...

    It's a shame that there's been all the exposure on the net & not on regular television. But I guess T Wobble knows what they're doin'.

    Never! I've put too much time into it to justify a jump. It'll take a long time before they sink. I figure I'll have retired by that point, if it happens.

    Plus, SharePoint owns all. There's no better platform (Android included) to be developing for. Granted, comparing SharePoint to Android is like comparing apples to oranges, but I love it (although I'm in a world or pissed off right now with some stupid string concatination stuff).

    Wouldn't say, "Im a nerd but i love smart phones and pda's." Anything that is new and challenges things that people think wouldn't be possible ie. Bar code scanner. This phone is great what'll happen over the next couple of years.

    *gag* Sharepoint is a horrible horrible piece of software. So glad I don't have to deal with it anymore.

    It can be a pain, but I like it better than straight ASP.NET apps. What versions have you worked on?

    <--CDN & networks!

    Phases: Are you holding out due to no 3G in the area? I live in Knoxville and think I am taking the plunge to T-Mobile. We will see how my 14 day grace period goes. Currently w/ AT&T so not that much of change since T-Mobile defaults to their towers.

    Just made my mark in the IT field but I have ran my own business for a couple years. One of my clients I Admin their network remotely, and a couple of business I provide onsite when i can. But mostly, I am doing entry level IT work on the corporate side (mostly Desktop Support) and working contracts here and there.

    Just signed a 6 month with Xerox for Field Tech. Can't wait to start this one.

    Don't knock the providers of my pay :), however indirect they may be. I'm about to plunge deeper into the Linux environment. I'm debating switching my desktop to Ubuntu Server.

    I'm only doing that, though, because I can't afford a legit copy of Win Server 03 and I don't care for the "other" method.
