I've written about TouchDown for Google Android in the past and it is one of the best priced apps I have purchased for my T-Mobile G1. I actually popped my SIM card in my G1 yesterday morning and discovered there was an upgrade to TouchDown that brought it up to version 3.x. I then received an email from the company with all the details surrounding this latest upgrade. As I mentioned before in my TouchDown articles, the NitroDesk Inc. people have been regularly updating the application to make the Exchange experience better and better for Google Android devices.
I've written about TouchDown for the Google Android a couple of times (here and here) and as I have said in those posts it gets better and better on a regular basis. I have been using beta versions and the latest available beta supports PUSH email, ability to send attachments, device-local drafts, and more. The folks at NitroDesk, Inc. were able to sign a licensing agreement with Microsoft to support direct push capability through Exchange ActiveSync. I think this is one of the first products for the G1 that provides this functionality, even though a couple others are working on it as well.

I was reading through my feeds and stumbled upon the Mobile Tech Review post on Gameloft games coming to Android devices. According to the press release, 20 games will be available from them on the Android Market. While this is great news for the T-Mobile G1 and future Android devices, until Google or the manufacturers (currently only HTC) fix the problem with only installing applications on internal memory you won't be able to actually load up many of these games without getting constant low memory warnings. I see this error/notification every single day now with just over 50 applications loaded on my G1. Maybe I should try to uninstall some of these applications.

As I pointed out in a recent post regarding the current firmware on the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device there is a major issue with not being able to store applications or content onto the external microSD card. I get low memory errors daily and if I browse a lot with the device my browser cache fills up to 10MB+. Then when I delete the data I lose all my history, bookmarks, etc. and this really limits my usage of the G1. Opera thankfully announced today that its Opera Mini 4.2 product for the Android platform is out of beta already and available as a full release in the Android Market.
The T-Mobile G1 is showing up in the hands of those who pre-ordered one this week (mine is schedule for Tuesday arrival) and I have been seeing new applications appearing in the Android Market almost daily on my review unit. There are still a very limited number of games and I think only one or two were added since I started my review. I loaded up eleven applications (a couple of these just appeared yesterday) and took the below video of eight applications in action on the G1. I covered the Video Player in my full review since that was really an application that should have been included by T-Mobile and Google. As I stated in my full review you only get 128MB of onboard storage to load up applications and you cannot currently load them on the microSD card. With the eleven applications I tried, I only had 34MB of remaining memory. However, in looking at the space allocation settings it looks like your data is stored in this area too so if you have a ton of contacts and lots of calendar entries your space may fill up faster.
