"Great Google IO Giveaway Android Phone - Ion"4.5 starson by Michael-Martin
Pros: First I liked the fact that as a Google IO attendee Google provided this phone for free - has sold on EBay for approximately $800.
Lightweight and stylish.
Battery actually lasts multiple days! My G1 would never survive a day without a recharge.
Cons: I really miss the G1 keyboard - my typing has slowed down about 5 fold with the onscreen keyboard.
Summary: I have replaced my G1 with the Ion especially as its a customized Android phone only provided to the approximately 4,000 attendees of Google IO.http://www.googleandblog.com/
Once this comes out in the US I believe this summer I would suggest it to those that don't heavily use text or instance messenging.
Battery life is a GODsend from the derth of which experienced on the G1.
