Android Launch Press Videos

Well, today was the big Android press conference in NYC that all the big bloggers have been talking about lately.

I unfortunately couldn't attend, however I followed the progress remotely... I was actually surprised to even find a few live feeds from the event made public via QIK.com (GREAT software, by the way, more on that in a future post).

The most interesting bit?

Google is offering over-the-air-sync with a supposed full two way push with Google Apps. That's right, push Gmail, Google calendar, contacts and Google Talk, all built right in.

This is the sort of thing people pay tons of money to have a Blackberry Enterprise Server for, or Microsoft Exchange with a WM device. Heck, even Apple has been trying to offer this with Mobile Me for a yearly premium, and it doesn't even work properly.

Google is just giving it away, and let's face it, who doesn't have a google apps account already?

That's just the tip of the iceburg. Check out more in this informative video:
