Thanks for that post, Widdle. This reminds me of the Nokia N82. When it was first released, people easily bashed how ugly it was. Guess which phone is the #1 rated phone on GSMArena by voters? The design grew on people, but the features was top class. If people want art and entertainment, go to a museum or buy an Apple product. That's not cutting edge technology. That's just yearning to be a poser to strangers that couldn't care less about you even if you had a "pretty" phone. You might as well asked to get jacked. Once the dev community get acquainted with Android, this G1 will age like fine wine... Look at the current scores. Up to 7.2 and 7.8's. Once people started using their "brain" and imagination instead of just their "eyes", the scores have been going up! G1 only had 7.0's last week. Positive word of mouth is finally spreading...
I had the pleasure of using one of these devices today!!! I can confirm that it will be well worth the wait! I agree in the photos it doesn't look "atractive" but when you have it in your hands it looks amazing, and the quality of build makes it feel a solid, well built phone. I will accept that it doesn't look as "sexy" as the iPhone, but, it is not far off, and the speed of the processer and responsivness of the touch screen is outstanding. I know it will not happen, but people should really stop slagging this phone off until they have tried it! as the pictures do not give the device justice!
all i hear is peopling talking bad and complaining about this phone..i bet done of you even have the phone so dont talk bad untill oct 22

It's popular and it's successful because of its wonderful touch UI. And yes, it does not have every single feature, but other phones are not complete with every single feature as well. And the iphone does offer other features that are even more useful than the ones missing. Bottom line is, no phone is for every one. You have to know which phone works the best for you. The reason why some people hates the iphone so much is because they want to have it, but unfortunately for them, it does not have the feature that they want on it, or, they simply cannot afford it. Well too bad. Get over it and don't be bitter.
Zé, 28 Sep 2008Not as great?? ahahaha hey, iphone sucks, try too listen to music while you text a message aha... moreTo Ze. Please do not spread your ignorance. It can mislead people. You can listen to music while composing and sending sms with the iphone. You can even listen to music while browsing the web with the iphone.
It was supoes to be free?? that was the idea whem google announced 2 years ago??? they said that the sponsors will pay the cost of this phone.
looks to be a promising phone, manly for it's default instillation of android, it will release in Europe, maybe a few weeks after US, I am not sure. contract price will be sub $200 or $400 with out contract, either way, this will be a great phone for the price, much better the the iphone.

as I know this OS is LINUX based... is it possible to install windows mobile 6 on this phone???
ill w8 for the next generation lol (if it comes). it has some nice specs but then lacks some really basic ones. come to think of it, iphone lacks lots of basic specs its probably just down to the marketing. anyway wen they make this itll b better than the iphone at least according to specs listed but apple fanboys cr8 an unbelievable hype over sometin thats just ok making ppl think iphone is much better than it truely is.
"65k colours" is not a resolution.
the resolution is WVGA and that will always have a higher priority than how many variations of particular colours it can display
I really think tha's a nice phone, it may be not beatifull but its oK, and it very functionall and i had a lot of expectatives on it, i think if we wait, we will discover a wonderfull phone
my only complaints is the 65k resolution, the huge buttons at the bottom, no flash, video conference and the design is bad. HTC have great ideas but never seem to put enough effort in the phone.
