Mobile Update for October 20, 2008

I got my G1.  Look for my initial reactions tonight (tomorrow morning at On Android) and thorough review as I spend more time with it.  I can say this so far:  I'm excited, setup was easy, the location doesn't work well (I'll change locations and see if it gets any better), typing is difficult with the protrusion on the right hand-side.  Love the battery.  As in it's user-replaceable.   Apple, get with it!

But here's the biggest news of all today:  Apple and the Beattles have come together to create a limited edition iPod for $795.  Wow!
