This application of Android takes your current location and feeds it into a database of nation-wide available cab companies, which allow you to order a cab pickup instantly with your current locations. Google Maps overlays also show areas of cities where you're likely to hail a cab off the street.
T-mobile setup a flash based emulator of their upcoming Android phone T-Mobile G1 which visualizes some of the functionality of the of the first Android phone. The emulator has its shortcomings like displaying the Android phone in the wrong size and some functionality is severely limited.
Taking those limitations aside the Android phone emulator does provide a good overview of some of the functions that the Android phone will offer. It is possible to get a first impression of the Google browser, Google maps and other functions like receiving calls, sms or mms. There is no real interaction with the emulator though. It is for instance not possible to use it to open any websites or actually call someone.
If you are considering getting a Google Android phone in the future – be it the only one available, the T-Mobile G1, or cell phones running the Android OS from other companies that have announced that they will support the platform – you might like to look at the Android application store to evaluate the existing applications. One of the main reasons for the popularity of the Google Android cell phone is the application store which lists applications that can be installed on the cell phone.
The Android application store got some great feedback last year when the application competition ended which produced more than 1000 different applications for the Android phone. It is usually not possible to see what the Android application store has to offer unless you already have an Android phone. Not very practicable for evaluation.
