The first preview of the Google Android phone has been shown and the device has some pretty interesting features. The device will allow owners to unlock it by drawing a secret shape on the screen. The so-called signature unlocking tool was among the features shown at a California sneak peak.

Times Online reports that other highlights of the device include a built-in compass to allow users to orient maps to their location and a customizable home page. A mobile version of the video game Pac Man will also be included.

According to Google Android project head Andy Rubin Android will work equally well for touch screen devices and devices that use other input methods like the BlackBerry trackball. The first Android devices are expected to ship this year.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
