Having played Google Android for my Galaxy Fit from Samsung, I should say that they are perfectly fitted together and, with them, I can do so many things. The Galaxy Fit is low-end smart phones in plastic, but it does more than what I want from a phone.
The best features, apart from customisable home screens with super fancy icons, that I am exited about are;
I can sync Google Calender with a widget on my Galaxy Fit at ease. It means that I manage and put schedules in Google Calender on my desk top, then the details are showing in a schedule widget on my Galaxy Fit. (They even work vise versa)
I can sync Gmail contact details to my Galaxy Fit. It means I could manage my contact details (multiful mob no, landline no, email, website and so on) in Gmail account on my desk top. Then, they are all showing on my Galaxy Fit and I could do everything with them easily on the go. You could import contact files to Gmail, but because I was not at doing so, I manually put all contents of my regular contacts in Gmail account yesterday.
Even with lower megapixel specs compared with our 2year old sony digital camera, the photos look real and better than from our Sony camera. You could easily put photos and vidoes in you Facebook.
Cloud storage available for free.
There are planty of fun applications. Speaktoit Assistance (just like Siri), Fake Iphone 4S, all sorts of games and utilities.
I can do all of above from my Galaxy Fit, a low-end smartphone from Samsung, still I have more than half of storage (internal & micro SD) available. Oh, one thing. Here in New Zealand internet speed is not great. I get 4mega download speed. I get that speed when I download applications on my Galaxy Fit.
My wife got a white Galaxy Note. Imagine what she can do with it.
