    Yeah, We are the number 3 Android Phone.......

    Should I be happy? Yeah why not it is Google's first shot at it right? It will only get better, we hope......

    From 'Yahoo! Finance - Financially Fit':

    "What is the best Android phone? There may only be one or two iPhones available at a time -- but there are more than a dozen different Google (NASDAQ: GOOG - News) Android designs that are competing for the title "Best Android Smartphone On The Planet" -- or "Best Android Smartphone So Far."

    We rate the best Androids available today and our top picks should be a quick and easy shopping guide for those looking for a great device.

    1. Sprint EVO 4G

    At the moment, the HTC-built Sprint (NYSE: S - News) EVO 4G is the Android phone to beat. A gazillion top-line features including a beautiful 4.3-inch screen, an 8-megapixel camera, 720p HD video output and, of course, access to Sprint's super-fast 4G network (when it comes to your neighborhood). A physically large phone like its Windows Mobile twin (T-Mobile's HD2), the EVO 4G is an absolutely amazing piece of handheld technology.

    2. HTC Droid Incredible

    This is HTC's super smartphone made for Verizon's EV-DO 3G network. The Incredible sports a great 3.7-inch screen and shares a lot with its big brother, the EVO 4G -- like a 1GHz Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM - News) Snapdragon processor, an 8-megapixel camera and HTC's Sense home screen look and feel. A downside is the phone's limited battery life, but there are higher-capacity battery packs available from third-party companies.

    3. Google Nexus One

    This is the phone that Google decided to lend its corporate name to. The Nexus One was the first phone to be updated to the latest version of the Android OS 2.2 (of course). It boasts a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen and has a 5-megapixel camera. Also manufactured by HTC, the Google Nexus One is only sold on Google's Web site for use on T-Mobile's 3G network. A Sprint version is rumored to be coming soon. Google has suggested that Verizon (NYSE: VZ - News) subscribers should check-out the similar Droid Incredible.

    4. Verizon Droid

    Made by Motorola (NYSE: MOT - News) for Verizon this phone is a winner. A slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a terrific 3.7-inch screen, 16GB of built-in memory, turn-by-turn GPS travel instructions, loads of video extras and a fast processor make this a desirable option. (Verizon's cellular network doesn't hurt either.) Even though its design is a few months old, the phone comes across as a cutting-edge, thoroughly modern Android device.

    5. Garminfone

    Garmin (NASDAQ: GRMN - News) has been promising a cutting-edge direction-finder/smartphone for awhile now. This joint effort with the computer gurus at Asus finally hits all the right notes. The Garminfone is a super GPS navigation device built into a state-of-the-art Android smartphone. In our tests we found the Garminfone to be the best smartphone navigation system today -- with the added plus of being able to have someone you know lend his/her voice to the travel commands. Very cool.

    Except for Garminphone, those are in order of release date. So are you really suprised? The article is kind of a copout anyway and pretty much only going off only specs.

    One thing nexus 1 has going for it is the updates it will receive first from google. I've messed around with the incredible and i don't think it's much better than nexus one at all. Froyo will allow apps on sd card negating the incredible's 8 gig hard drive. Also i maybe crazy but I didnt see in real benefits to using sense.

    Will the N1 be able to handle 4G just by downloading an update or will we need a new phone altogether? That Sprint EVO is hot, hot, hot!! Also wouldn't mind owning that Ericcson phone that's not available here as of yet.
    Also everybody should click on the link containing the complete list of Android phones available within the article.

    A) No, the N1 does not have a 4G radio
    B) In most cases, 4G is not nearly as fast as people think it will be
    C) 3G can be quite fast
    D) Battery life on the EVO absolutely sucks

    If I had to name my greatest strength, I guess it would be my humility. Greatest weakness, it's possible that I'm a little too awesome.

    Not too bad considering you can only get it online(for now). Most folks won't shell out $500+ without having held it in their hands. I guess that just leaves us technofiles to pick up the slack... go geek power!
