    I got a chance to spend a few minutes with the G1 phone today. Here are my first impressions:

    • Phone is smaller than it appears in photos. It's not as big as let's say the Tilt. Feels good in your hand.
    • UI is very nice and reminiscent of iPhone
    • Android Market is working and seems to be just like App Store
    • Browsing large contact list is easy enough
    I wish I could provide more insight, but I literally spent no more than a few minutes with the phone. I just happened to find myself at a meeting where two people had the phone. It's my understanding that reviews will start coming out later this week.

    How did they get the phones?

    I'm guessing they're one of those CNET people, etc, since you said "It's my understanding that reviews will start coming out later this week."

    I had lunch with Palm the other day and there were a few guys who run mobile sites. Two of them were carrying the G1 and they offered it up. Spent a few minutes with it.

    Ahh okay. Got it.

    That's pretty neat though. It looks pretty interesting so far from the emulator on the T-Mo site.
