It runs the latest Android operating system–OS 2.2 (aka, Froyo)–which provides a faster overall Android experience as well as greater multitasking capabilities. Google Maps gives you turn-by-turn GPS directions. You’ll get a Gmail email account. Google Search lets you type or speak your query. With Google Contacts, all your friends’ info is synced to your phone.
You’ll be able to receive notifications, listen to music, and even record GPS data without keeping the application open. And it offers a plethora of features, including an improved QWERTY keyboard, full push corporate e-mail, and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
