Gadget open thread

My cell phone contract runs out in mid-January, and I was already looking at Android phones to replace my old Blackberry. (I was leaning towards the Motorola Cliq on T-Mobile.)

But this week Google is planning to announce their own branded mobile phone, and it looks sweet. So for once I might get to be at the bleeding edge of technology, at least for a week or two until Apple's tablet comes out.

(I would have gone for the iPhone, as I already have an iPod Touch and like it, but I hate AT&T. T-Mobile seems to be the best combination of low cost and reliability, and with a family plan it gets very inexpensive for unlimited voice and data.)

You are never too old for toys.

Anyway, I'll be busy the rest of the day, so feel free to take a break from the usual stuff and go crazy on discussing your favorite high-tech gadgets.
