Android shows its gleaming head tomorrow

Boing Boing Gadgets will be at the NYC launch. Until then, two interesting bits about the long-awaited Google Phone.

Google's Andy Rubin on the future of mobiles, mentioning "Smart Alerts" (think Google News alerts on the go); "Augmented Reality", which will allow digital overlays of the real world; "Crowd Sourcing"; "Sensors Everywhere", including traffic tracking tools; and more.

Pictures of the device, as well as news that Amazon will be one of the first to provide a mobile media purchase and download system for the device.

I'm really excited about this phone. I hope that it becomes the repository for innovation that Apple seems happy to stymy on the iPhone.
