"So thanks, but no thanks"?? Excuse me GSMArena, would you please let us, the _customers_, decide?
Personally I don't think this fone is that bad. It may not have the looks of the HTC Touch HD or the iPhone, but from what I've seen it's quite ok... I kind of like the keyboard and its round keys. And if it's as responsive as you'd expect from a Google product (judging by Chrome, Picasa and Google Earth), then I couldn't really care less about the lack of stereo BT or video recording!
Ugly. doesn't matter if it has a 250GB hardrive. I am not touching this thing.
what the **** is this piece of **** .. anyway.. better then anything Motorola has put out the last 24 months..
The only nice thing: "Built in compass... allowing live 360-degree cityscape browsing just by turning the handset around."
Other than that, sigh...
this device looks like a chinese duplicate mobile...not more than $ 100 that too unlocked.......nothanks..and no thanks...
"So we waited a whole year now just to see a poor iPhone replica with a QWERTY keyboard that doesn't even look half as good. It seems HTC have not put any effort in the design - and even the functionality is flawed. So thanks, but no thanks! Let's see the next one, please!"
It's sad but true... Lets wait the next contenders
- Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1
- Nokia 5800 XpressMusic
- LG Renoir
My 6 month old daughter has a device similar to the G1, it's called Speak & Spell. You can find them at your local toy store.

Looks like my nephews plastic toy phone...
Android loaded with bugs.

This phone is garbage as with all the phones T-Mobile has in its selections of handsets. Yet another junk phone!!!! Google should really stick to search engines.....I wonder if I can Google an expression that best describes their software....Googarbage. (trademark pending)
an iphone-like gadget...no video recording, no bluetooth file transfers etc..what a pity.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2008N0 file transfers and video recording?what a waste"The Bluetooth functionality will be enhanced later on."
maybe so as the camera...
Darn... I expected a big bang from Android OS smartphone but all I get is a tiny spark. WinMo still rocks!
