As part of the DW community meme, I'll actually make a post in here, as I'd kind of wanted to for a while, but hadn't since it was rather dead.

I got my Motorola Cliq in November, and I kind of love it. I might have gotten the G1 earlier, but the keyboard is literally unusable for my tiny, tiny hands (my thumb wouldn't fit over the chin to type anything), so I was waiting for another Android phone (on T-Mobile) that had a physical keyboard. There are apparently rooting guides for the Cliq, that I haven't quite summoned up the courage or carved out the time slot to try it yet, but hopefully will carve out the time to do so sometime soon.

Now that there's more than the G1 out running Android, what phones do you have and what version of Android are you running? If anyone else has a Cliq, what do you think of Motoblur (or have you already rooted your phone)?

I have a G1 that I own but don't actually use. I was really interested in the Nexus One, but don't want to spend the money on it right now.

I think Android is really awesome, but I haven't yet fallen in love with any of the hardware.

There are definitely things that could be improved with the Cliq, and I'm not really married to Motorola. I'd actually really prefer a trackball to the 4-way button, and will probably keep an eye out for phones in another year or two that are closer to my ideal on phone design. But I'm liking running Android much more than Blackberry's OS, in general.

Yeah, agreed. The OS is pretty slick. I'm still wedded to my iPhone but I could definitely see that changing at some point if I can get a phone that will do what I want.

The trackball on the G1 is marvelous. I enjoy using it and wish I had it on my main phone. Alas.

I have a G1, I'm looking at getting the Motorola Droid. I don't plan on rooting either of them.
