Obsidian is only used to make portals to the nether at this moment. However notch said something about obsidian will become special blocks who can fly in the air without blocks under that. When this will be done normal blocks will fall down like sand.

This info is not 100% accurate tho. Was a while ago when I saw the article

Nether portal, explosive resistent, extremely hard for griefers to mess with.

It doesn't do too much. You can use it to make a portal to the nether in single player. You can also use it to make explosion resistant buildings and such. That's about it.

Obsidian is used to make a gateway to the nether. By aligning them in an order:

| | | |

|      | The Obsidian must touch, and then light it on fire with flint and steel.

In minecraft, Obsidian is the 3rd strongest material. (Diamond is the strongest) obsidian is used to build a nether portal. It brings you to hell in minecraft. (No water, lava everywhere, zombie pigmen and ghosts.)

Building the portal.
