We know it is early and the software is pre-Alpha but it is hard to see this thing catching up to even  last year’s iPhone very soon.  Don’t get us wrong, we would really like to see some legitimate competition in the consumer smartphone space, but the Android is still a long long way from being refined into something that can compete with the iPhone.  Perhaps we’re spoiled – even buttons seem draconian.

With Microsoft buying Danger and Sony going to WM6 and other Symbian and WM6 players considering Android the cell phone market seems to be in disarray…the iPhone (which is the likely cause of the industry fire drill) just keeps looking more solid.

Edit: For those of you who’ve asked, we would also like to show you this movie – which makes the Android look much more compelling…They even got Seregey Brin to talk like an Android for added effect.
