I have just recently bought the HTC Hero phone with the Android operating system. In my life I have had a whole lot of PDAs from Apple Newton MessagePads to Psions to WinCE (unbelievable that Microsoft's crap stinks like on the first day even after ten years of evolution) to Zaurus to - now - Android. Although I was sceptical I must admit that I'm loving most everything that Google does so it's the perfect choice. And although Android is not entirely free Google at least offers the SDK for nuts.
