Question: is it possible to transfer movies/dvd's onto the G1? With my vieuwty for instance I can put a dvd into my computer and transfer it to the phone and watch it on my phone.. is that an option with the G1?
I'm waiting for the Android G2 which does away with the QWERTY keyboard and that bottom "chin"....
Just changed my handset from N96 to G1, N96 just an entertainment toy as far as I realised. The power toy is G1..enojoying the greatness....
Quick question to anyone who has this phone. Does the browser have full flash support? How is it on YouTube for example?
the G1 looks very cool simple in the outside but very sophisticated in the inside cant wait to buy one i seen the features and they look pretty good cant wait to buy it.
I'm waiting for any of the Android phones (G1 or newer) to come to South Africa and I'll be one of the first owners. BTW there's a lot of haters on this planet. This OS will prove a lot of people wrong, the fact that it's an open and free OS will make it popular among developers (remember it's Linux-based), more like S60,though the latter has now joined Apple and Microsoft with their application/music store. Keep posting.
What is the best application to use on the G1 for MSN? And does it cost anything to use it?
Thanks in advance.
how can you activate the GPS?, and when you buy the phone where do you set up your Gmail account?

see http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=CO7Yxyux1_k for review of hardware and port covers (fast forward to 3:55)
This phone is great to have, people complain about battery life, well you can switch 3G to 2G and 2G is still quick and also turn the brightness down all the way thats the best way to save battery. I own the G1, it is a great phone. I work for SCKiosk in Chicago District amd we have the Iphone, Samsung Eternity, Samsung Behold, Samsung Instinct and LG VU. And i was playing with all the phones and G1 has the best features out of all the touch screen phones. People talk about iphone has touch screen text well G1 does also (application is called Chomp SMS) and the web browser you can rotate the screen with out sliding the the screen base to use the keyboard. And the web browser is also touch screen text board. (application is called Steel) The G1 is a great phone to have, I highlt recommend to all T-Mobile users!!
Cupcake won't cost anything! It will be a free update so dont worry about it!
Any Android update will be free as the whole Android OS itself is free, this will tempt more manufacturers to produce Android devices as all they have to do is worry about the hardware, and the Android OS is free!
This should also mean that devices shouldnt be as expensive as WinMo and Symbian devices.
2009 is the year of Android! With so many manufacturers already on the bandwagon, we are sure to see some great devices very soon.
The G1 isnt ugly, just that its not much to look at but the functions are all there and it works pretty well. Cupcake should fix a lot of issues people are having.
As for those who are torn between the G1 and the iphone, its simple... if you want a good solid looking phone and want to use it as a music player and browsing then the iphone will do the job. But if you want a hardware keyboard, a slightly better camera, a slightly better and clearer display, copy, cut and paste, and the comfort of knowing that there is an unlimited number of people, working on apps for Android, then you'll want the G1.
I've had the iphone and at first it is WOW but after a week or so, I was just using it as a phone and nothing else!
With the G1, after a few months now, I am still attached to this device and love browsing the net, sending texts, emails, posting messages on forums, making calls, checking the Android market every day for new apps, installs apps, keeps some apps, delete some apps, and recently I've started to read ebooks on the damn thing!
I dont let it out of my site, it always has to be near me! I've had them all, Diamond, Cruise, Magician, i600, Trinity, Artemis, Tytn, K-Jam, and so many others but none of them had received as much love and attention as the G1!
I will buy new Android devices, once they are released, but I will never sell my G1! :D
I am amazed that sp many people choose form over function.
The iPhone is a pretty little phone for airheads.
Android will be where the exciting work will be done.
If you're a hairdresser and/or drive a car with flaired arches/painted flames down the side, go for the iPhone.
If you want something that actually delivers, get the G1.
