This fne looks great and with the new cupcake update im sure its going to get even better. Can we plz have a review though!!!
there is an upgrade to G1 firmware coming in January 2009 called CupCake. Reportedly cupcake will fix many bugs, include A2DP stereo bluetooth support, virtual keyboard (like iphone), vide recording, etc. GOOGLE on "G1 cupcake" and read the article from android development site.
Rmondo, 24 Sep 2008I think this phone is for kids that do not drive or multitask. I need a phone that will allow ... moreNot useful because you cannot drive and text with one hand at the same time?! Get off the roads, you're a hazard to responsible road users no matter what phone you use!
come visit us in fonehouse woolwich to get your hands on the g1 free on £35.00 a month on an 18month contract. you will get 700 minutes and unlimited texts plus your unlimited browsing
hey..i was wonderin if i should get the g1 or the g705...which do u prefer???
i mostly want a phone for entertainment....
I have had the set for than 3 weeks now. As far as the phone performance is concerned its simply outstanding. The browsing experience is amazing especially on 3G or wifi. The screen is very responsive to your finger movement. It does not hang because of the hardware it has.m Battery life is poor but than there are ways to conserve it. Do not use the 3G and gps when they aren't required.
However I would recommend google to work on the following:
1) Improve on the SD card functionality as you can not install softwares on it.
2) Frequent Software updates should be made.
as a carphone warehouse employee we have had some feed back from our customers stipulating that a) the phones not what it seems and that the battery life is not lasting 406 hours as put on the specifications on here!
how long dose the batt last on standby? The one i got don't last a day..
Does Anyone know how many text messages can it Store Up to. Thanks.....firstname.lastname@example.org
skc, 19 Dec 2008hi PCK but where u bought that for so less amounti don kno where he got it for 79.95$ but i saw that same price tagged in the review of G1 in our newspaper too.
The android phones has the potential to run away with the smart phone market. If Google and the Alliance realize that it is a mobile computer not a phone and provide capabilities to use peripheal devices such as keyboard, printer, monitors of PC size.
Iphone has this potential built in because of its proprietary 14 pin connect. G1's firmware and WiFi inhibit the connection of peripheal. Wake up Google!
PCK, 17 Dec 2008Many thanks, but I got it for only $79.95 hi PCK but where u bought that for so less amount
Its a pretty good phone, not because the exterior (i dont like that plastic feel, it seems like its going to pieces the next second) but because of the os itselt. although its still in early development (version 1.0) it has big potential. there is a lot of software available on the android market and sure there will be far more. however the biggest con is the battery. and for me is very important. using wireless or gprs/edge not constantly (we dont have 3g in albania) the phone goes from full to 10% in less then an hour. u cant use a phone and then try to find a fixed place where to charge the battery.thats nonsense.i think there will be far better phones next year using android, so for anyone who wants to get one, i think he should wait
i think the g1 is very cool but i hate that you have to have internet to set up the google account when you first get it
level_head, 12 Dec 2008well the X1 has a lot of very pretty eye candy with it's touch panels. But underneath all that... morewell thx that really helps, but if you look at winmo 6.1 it runs quite smoothly just like htc touch diamond. well let's just take a look at the development of the android os.
thx for the input
just to let everyone know make sure you turn off your blue tooth when you dont use it on this phone because the battery will die very quick k guys have fun wit the fones
come to tmobile D&B wireless in serremonte shopping center were giving it for 149.99 with a 2 year contract come check it out ask for eugene we will hook you up ;)
