LEAKED: First Google Android Smartphone shows its face

Not a Windows Mobile device, the Android prototype photo Gizmodo just received looks quite similar to a Windows Mobile device (mostly like the HTC S620) which is no wonder since HTC is part of Google's recently announced Open Handset Alliance.
According to Gizmodo's anonymous tipster, the OS (and device) - in its early form - is light and fast, much faster than the desktop emulator at times. And as a longtime programmer, he thinks it's a lot more put together than Window Mobile on the back side of things.

No question, the device above is a prototype for developing purpose only and things will obviously change but if Android wants to gain some market share (in the consumer segment - as HTC mentioned earlier too) it needs some more mass-market compatible hardware.

Cheers ~ Arne
