updated google apps, now 8810 is bricked

I went to google apps and it offered to download and install an update.  I said yes.  It downloaded then said I needed to reboot.  After the reboot I get the hourglass for like 2 minutes, then the nAT&T logo then my home page.  I can enter my password, after which the phone will work, but no other apps, I just get the "PLEASE WAIT..." banner forever.  The phone will eventually relock itself.
