The Google Android G1 Phone: Departing San Antonio, TX

22OCT08 San Antonio, TX

I awoke and looked at the time on the phone, it was 4:12a, three minutes before the alarm was set. My friend set it last night, so I'll have to figure this out later. He was intrigued that there were so many settings. The good thing about the alarm, is that each time you use the phone, you are reminded of the alarm time. We were laughing that the phone actually told you how many hours to the alarm time; smart alec!

I pulled the covers over my head and went back to sleep knowing that in 3 minutes the alarm would go off. Sure enough it did although it seemed like forever.

I got ready and we left the house at 4:40a phone in hand and headed for the airport. Traffic was extremely light and we had no issues. Taking the time to catch up some more and using the G1 to denote our position. It did work this time and showed our progress as a flashing dot on the map. We verified with neighboring streets that it was indeed correct. Strange how last night it did not show us where we were when we had it in directions mode. It even showed the airport with runways and all.

At 5:00a, we turned off the highway and into the airport.
