The video shows other features, all titled under the "It's Go Time" slogan. For more check out Features presented - Widgets (probably the highlight feature of Android so far) - Google maps navigation - Music & Videos portal - Emails - 4 e-books apps (very cool) - 32GB SD memory slot (yes! finally a freedom from storage tyranny) - Stream to any monitor (yet another neat capability) - 7 Hours battery life - Front webcam for video chat - Adobe Flash support for games and apps (well, surely that you won't have on the iPad). Verizon wireless have just announced it will be their first tablet computer.
