nominate your picks for the Android Community Most Valuable Poster. The winner will receive a limited edition HTC Magic from Google I/O. The device also comes with a month of service from T-Mobile, but the phone itself is unlocked for any carrier (aka T-Mo or AT&T in the U.S). Now we're down to the three top nominations. They are: DrVeronica, Susan and JohnnyLicious. So here's the deal, since all three had overwhelming support from the community, we're having final vote for the top MVP of Android Community. All three of these members garnished some incredible support because of their efforts in the community, and they're all fantastic contributors and members of AC, but we only have one phone to give away. Head on over to the comment section in the forums and vote in the poll!
HTC Magic, with a large display, and the controls below the screen, though the Galaxy is a bit thinner than the HTC phones. The Galaxy uses a D-Pad and an "OK" button instead of a trackball. There is another button on the left part of the D-Pad with an arrow on it, which is the like MENU button found on HTC Android phones. There is a small button on the right side that has no markings, and simply acts as the Home button for the phone. ] I would check out the review and hit up the link for more pictures.

live at Google I/O right now, and he's bringing us some great news on the history of Android and hopefully some new news on where it's headed. We have some facts and figures about Android: If you can't read the picture (really?) we have Android on 10 carriers in 12 countries, with 4,900 applications, and each user downloaded 40+ applications per device. It is #2 in the U.S. mobile web browsing stats, and there's some more news coming. New features include handwriting recognition, and we have what looks like the new Samsung device on stage. We're going to bring you updates as the come, and also video! Update: It seems that Google's Android 2.0 "Donut" will also have Text-to-Speech functions as well as Universal search. Update 2: Check out the video demo of the new features here. [gallery]
