    Not yet, at least. The Google devices get firmware updates before any other phones.

    Also keep in mind there will be more phones coming soon.

     If I were going to buy a tablet (I probably never will because I'd personally never use one) I would get the Asus EEE Pad. Love the design, love the processor, love the screen, love Asus EEE anything (used to have an EEE PC). It's probably the only tablet out right now that is overengineered based on expectations of what's to come.

    The S2 just arrived - holy shit this thing is light! And pretty. Not sure if I should take to Vegas this weekend, or bring the ole Evo in case something happens.

    You might as well take it. Just make sure you got it insured.

    Official Android Thread   

    Considering getting a new phone, but honestly, I haven't been paying a bit of attention to whats good and what isn't on the market right now. I am upgrading from my original HTC Incredible that I have had for 2+ years.

    I have loved the phone, except for the battery life and how buggy it can be. I like how easy it is to use, and the size of it is about perfect, but I guess I could accept something bigger if I needed to.

    Things that are important to me:

    -Picture quality. I use my phone as my camera 99% of the time, and I take a lot of pictures, so picture quality is way up there on the list of importance.
    -1080p HD video. I want this in my next phone.
    -Battery life, or atleast the option to purchase an extended life battery for the phone. I hate that if I use my phone moderately throughout the day, I WILL have to charge it at some point in order for it to make it the rest of the day until I plug it in at bedtime.
    -Simplicity of the user interface. I don't want to have to take a class to learn how to use all the features on my phone, haha. I'm tech savvy, but I don't get nearly as into it as some of you guys do.

    Suggestions?

     Jen, Samsung Galaxy S3 gets announced on the 3rd May. I'd check that out for 2 reasons:

    1) It should be the benchmark for android phones - will have one of the best cameras around and 1080 HD video
    2) Even if you don't like it or its more than what you need, plenty other phones will probably come down in price when it goes on sale to attract competition

    Those tablets are so cool, by the way. I fully expect you to go around whopping iPad doofii (pretty sure that's the plural of doofus) with it.

     i'm pretty excited for it. seems like a good combination of price and performance and i like the functionality the keyboard dock can add if i decide to go that route.

     I haven't read anything in this thread because I'm not an android guy but does anyone here have any experience or opinions on the HP Touchpad? You can run Android software on it which is why I ask. I was thinking of possibly picking one up because I can get a pretty good price on it.

    Anyone have experience with the Droid Razr? So far I've heard good things and I'm planning on picking it up tomorrow. This will be my first smartphone, so what are some apps I should get right away?
