Snippet:

<<Google has just announced the availability of a developer phone that can be purchased by registered Android Developers. Costing $399 (roughly the same price as a contract-free G1 phone from T-Mobile), the phone offers an unlocked bootloader and allows easy flashing for the installation of custom Android builds. It is available for purchase in 18 international markets. You must join the $25 Android Marketplace program in order to purchase a device.>>

That sounds very nice.

Just a warning: Google adds a big charge to ship to countries other than the US (more than $150 extra for many countries) and you don't see how much this charge is until after you have paid the $25 developer fee.
