Samsung Moment on Sprint running Google Android

Sprint is about to get a Samsung smartphone running Google's Android operating system. The phone is called the Sprint Moment and it's a slider that has a full QWERTY keyboard. The device has a nice large 3.2" AMOLED screen (so it should be quite energy efficient).

One of the nice aspects of Android is that you gain easy access to Google's core services: Search, Maps, Gmail and YouTube. The major drawback for medical students, residents, physicians, and other healthcare professionals is the limited selection of medical apps for the Android operating system.

I have no doubts that Google's Android will be a successful smartphone OS. The major question is: where will it fall among Apple's iPhone, RIM's BlackBerry, Microsoft's Windows Mobile, and Palm's webOS?
