My first encounter with an Android (T-Mobile Pulse)

Recently I had a chance to try out my first Android device. It's called the "T-Mobile Pulse / Huawei U8220 ". Previously I tried an HTC Diamond, which was running on Windows Mobile, both platforms have a very nice UI.

At first, when the boot-up screen showed up, I thought to myself that these devices are just like PC-s from now on, rather than mobile-phones. Not to speak about those very high DPI values. It is also very comfortable and useful that you can rotate the mobile by 90 degrees both direction, the display is going to be rearranged. 

The Pulse has a version 1.5 of Android, and it features aGPS, 3.2mp camera, g-sensor, Wifi, etc...
