MobileCrunch has a fairly detailed look at the new Android emulator. We go through all the current apps—the phone, the browser, Google Maps—and even crash the OS a few times for good measure.

Android adopts a traditional desktop user interface, letting you drag icons around that launch different apps, as well as look at a full menu of apps hidden away in a tray. A small search box can also be placed right on the opening screen.

Another nice little feature is the ability to assign certain contacts different priorities. Your ex-girlfriends can all be sent to voicemail, for instance (or not, depending on your current state of desperation).

UPDATER – Audio has been cleaned up considerably. Thanks for your patience.
