    A Touch HD with a keyboard (if it's not too thick) and Android? I'm there. My G900's due an upgrade, preferably to something which I can't out-touch-type.

    what a load of bollocks. The original report is by the same "journalist" that said that Telstra were launching a 28Mbps iphone..... 'nuff said.

    The wannabees fly in

    Perhaps this is an instance of the wannabees further enhancing and elevating the iPhone?
