Hi Jim,

I am writing this email from my Motorola Droid.  The Moto Droid is not as
fast as an HTC Incerdible but the Moto Droid has a hard keyboard, whic I
really like.  At first, I thought that the Moto droid keyboard might be hard
to use, but after just 3 minutes of practice, I was comfortable and fairlyh
accurate with it.

And yes all Android phones can gat BASH terminals, although you don't
immediately have root

contract lets me upgrade. i wanna android because
i like the buzz (google policies in general seem
a cut above most other techy corporations).
  any opinions: why choose either the HTC
incredible or the Motorola droid phone?

  what's this to do with linux? i believe the
OS of both phones is linux-based, yes?
  i've learned not to be hopeful that some
small mobile device with linux will present a
bash shell and some way to plug in a keyboard
and mouse and maybe even a display.
  sure would be nice to transfer files using
an ext? format and also nice to ssh into the
thing from my computer.
  what am i missing, i.e. what do people do
with these things that my vt100 style doesn't
