Best option will be to wait until November 30th to see if they actually manage to ship anything. I am sure that a couple of tech sites will purchase a model for review. Their price is not that competitive once you start loading up reasonable options, as I got to $450 quickly, which is comparable to the very latest ebay prices for the G1.
The one option which is interesting is the forward facing camera, just wonder if some form of skype could be ported to android. I know the phone does not have the processing power of a dual core PC, however would be novel to have skype video chats from a mobile.
