  • After the speeches, with some curly questions thrown in about exclusivity and network performance, it was back to demonstrating what the phone could do, such as automatically scan QR codes.

  • After scanning the code on the back of a business card, the options come up to: add contact, show map, dial number, send email.

    As can be seen, this lucky Dream also had a case, which didn't seem to hinder the operation of the phone.

  • Another one of my faves. Users can set their own touch password to unlock the phone.

    Awesome, I want one. I saw one at the recent ruxcon, it was very distracting during the talk.
    Looking at the other zdnet article on optus' plans and prices though, I think it would be better to buy a developer version outright direct from google for 399USD...
    As for the lightsaber app, I prefer the fullscreen one on Symbian, but to each there own.
