If you are going to get an Android phone any time soon, this is it.
The iPhone 4 takes fantastic pictures, for a phone. With the myTouch 4G Slide, HTC's promising the first phone since the iPhone that takes better pictures and doesn't suck at, well, everything else.
Three Dees and Four Gees. That's the Evo 3D. But it's more than that: The screen's a killer 4.3-inch, 960x540 auto-stereoscopic display, meaning it's almost as high-res as the iPhone 4 and pulls off 3D tricks without glasses (like Nintendo's 3DS).
The Nexus S 4G on Sprint is a self-explanatory little phone: It's the same Nexus S—Android 2.3, contour display, NFC powers—but with the added goodness of Sprint's 4G WiMax network.
Over on the official Google Blog, Jonathan Rosenberg, Senior VP of Product Management, just shared some of his "favorite tips and apps for Nexus S." And you've gotta figure that his favorite tips and tricks are probably worth checking out.

Android has never felt more alive than it does on the Nexus S. It's fast. It's cocksure. It's, well, really good.
The new Google Phone is coming December 16, and when it does it'll run you $529 unlocked or $199 with a new two year T-Mobile contract. Like its predecessor, you'll be able to get one online directly through Google, or (or!) at Best Buy locations, Best Buy Mobile stores, and on BestBuy.com. [Nexus S]
The Nexus S might be a groovy piece of hardware, but what we're really hot and bothered for is Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
The new Google Phone is here: The Nexus S. Built by Samsung, it's got a 4-inch Super AMOLED "Contour Display," 1GHz Hummingbird processor, NFC support, and most importantly, it's running a completely clean version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
