Google Releases Experimental Phone to Employees:

This is the phone I want. I need an unlocked phone, with data plan only, can run Skype to make calls, to be open-source based, can run Java. Google phone looks like, finally, my dream phone.

I like iphone/ipod, but I do not like the way that all is prepriotary. I don’t want to buy another pc/notebook to develop iphone apps running in a mystery OS uisng Object C. Wifi and Skype do not work well too. I hate they exclude Java programs from their OS and Steve Jobs’s rediculous comments about Java.

Did I mention that you can use your sd card to expand your storage without paying bigger bucks? Better than iPhones too!
