Finally.. on Android

After years of crappy locked-up total-hacking-required phone OS's, this sure is a nice change.
A little out of my normal price range, but I've wanted to do on-phone dev work for a while now and it looks like this is going to be the only real way to handle it easy.
I really enjoy the fact that LG has open-sourced the software for this device! Delicious.
And, all the devs working hard at de-crappifying ROMS for it! All I've got to say is WOW. I tried AOSP's gingerbread cyanogen ROM, and it did work mostly OK; I just have no need yet for Gingerbread, so I'm trying "Stock Virgin Mobile + Xionia Kernel (BETA 2)" just to see if I like it.
A very nice device overall, andI'll be extremely happy with it once I find an external keyboard for it (even with swype, my fingers are having a hard time aiming properly for the tiny little keys on the screen.)
Looks like fun around here!
