Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

ok.. 2 mp camera? its a little behind the times, id say. with the behold just dropping with 5mp and the new curve to be at 3.2 why would anyone use a 2.0? other than that the phone looks OK... nothing spectacular.

The Kogan is somewhat unremarkable. However variety and more models using the Android Software Stack, is a very good way to improve it. And although I've not seen this phone in person, I have seen the new G2 (made by HTC), and it's a great improvement over the G1. Everyone that has participated in this history making event with the purchase of a G1 will be very impressed and eager to get their hands on a G2. I know that after the good experience I had with my G1, the G2 is a must have. However it will never replace my BlackBerry, but rather be a secondary phone to play with and enjoy.
On top of the fact that it doesn't have the 1960's RIM hardware design, it has:
2.5-inch TFT-LCD flat touch-sensitive screen.
Integrated QWERTY keyboard.
High-speed 3G network connection.
Easy Web Browsing.
Easy-to-use email with attachment support for images, videos, music and documents.
Customisable Home Screen with instant Email, text message and IM notifications.
Bluetooth® 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate
microSD™ expansion slot for all your storage needs.
Wi-Fi network access.
GPS navigation capability.
2.0 megapixel camera.
This market's getting really competitive

The best thing about the Android Software Stack is that it's fresh, new, filled with potential, and getting a lot of attention world wide. This is nothing to scoff at, even in these early days. The big players in the cellular industry are not laughing, they are taking Android quite seriously. It will be a fun movie to watch....
I agree Archer, at least about the Android OS - It is a REAL shame, however, that their initial offering was on hardware like the G1 which, imo, is total and utter crap. Stick that OS inside something really, really nice...and look out.
