The iPhone Latitude news was only the start of it: Google's I/O Conference has been throwing up all manner of news, and our own Vincent Nguyen was on hand to catch it on camera.  After the cut, you can see Google's video demo of Android OS 2.0 "Donut"; they then gave out an exclusive unreleased HTC Magic - with T-Mobile USA AWS support - which having unboxed Android Community are giving away to one lucky forum member.

Palm Pre news after the cut

Palm then showed up with a video demo of their location API and other aspects of the Pre's webOS platform.  They're going in for HTML5 support in a big way - remember, this is the clever web tech that allowed Google to build offline web apps.
