I expect more from Google.  Their "demo" link off the home page [1] 
should have a live emulator of the Nexus One.  Let you make and receive 
calls from the web page.  Load your gmail address book.  Load and try 
apps.  Link to GPS on your existing phone (via Google Maps) so you can 
try local reference search and navigation.  Order a preconfigured, 
preloaded phone.  Anything less and they are just loafing.

What would you do with 1 million machines??


Anyway, leaving out a physical keyboard is substandard.  And not one of 
those semi-useless sideways chicklet keyboards, but something you can 
type 40+ wpm.
