no way... i telling you it is revolution .
Linux base , open source , Google mobile ...
it's really dynamite in mobile world i can't wait to gets my hand on it . good work Google ,good work HTC
This phone turned out to be a big dissapointment, not only is this phone ugly as sin, it is also lacking featurewise begining with the fact that it only sports a 3 megapixel camera when there are phones out there with 10 megapixels, they could have at least put in a 5 megapixel cam in there...
I've been lucky enough to get my hands on a prototype of one of these as I work for T-Mobile. I can safely say you will be suprised at the intuitive flow of this dynamic phone. It is easily as responsive and elegant as the I-Phone...and I'm not just saying this!!
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2008No no no. Such a good try from Google with the Android and here comes the G1 with a KEYPAD !!!... moreBecause is much easier to type with keyboard then tap on the touch screen.
i bet half the people who are leaving comments don't even have this phone yet
I like this mobile...it looks different...and that its associated with Google makes it a special one...kinda worried about the OS...not sure of its functionality...but never the less...i'm excited about this phone...can't wait to see it.
Anonymous, 25 Sep 2008No no no. Such a good try from Google with the Android and here comes the G1 with a KEYPAD !!!... morethe iphone doesnt work fine! one day when ur touch screen malfunctions then u'll realize how much pain it is to operate a touch screen phone when the touch screen doesnt work!
No no no. Such a good try from Google with the Android and here comes the G1 with a KEYPAD !!! Why does a Touch Phone need a keyboard. iPhone doesn't have one and it works fine. Does Android really needs a keypad or the guys @ HTC are stupid ....
I m a bit disappointed with this phone, when i first saw it i thought it was ugly (told myself : you know... tastes...) Now when i see the specs i just think that no video recording or bluetooth AD2P whatsover... What are they doing? trying to release an iphone copy? they re just doing the same mistakes as Apple but what s odd is that it's not their first phone... far from it.
I got it! they hired the iphone lead developper!
Too bad cause the android OS just rocks and is completely open source.. Google shouldn't have trusted HTC on this one!
It's a decent device, especially to ones with T-mobile contract. Just like the ones with Att contract cry about their iPhone.
Gmail-maps and gps sounds fine for 200 USD with contract extension with a nice keyboard on the slide.
Only downside is no flash or autofocus camera, word document editor and only viewer, video playback support.
It's a fun device and I'd definitely get it.
But I already pre-ordered my Xperia :)
I'm so excited! I just ordered the phone last night.... idk if I can wait for a month!!!!
Nick, 24 Sep 2008T-Mobile is one of the largest growing companys right now and it all ready has 3G network in 2... moreNick...what are you smokin'? TMobile is #4 in the US market and there's a good reason for it...their service has lagged behind the rest. All the other US carriers have had 3G for the past 2 years. You'd think TMo would have been on the ball...they haven't been.
Look at the current phone line....junk and ya think there's better in store. I truly hope so because the G1 has missed the mark in my opinion. I like Android but I may be waiting for it on a better looking handset. We all are.
Its an all in one phone with all the features like Edge/WiFi/3G/3M pixel camera/Touch screen/battery life 5hrs and moreover the OS is open source .
What else you want at $179 ... cool phone !!
T-Mobile is one of the largest growing companys right now and it all ready has 3G network in 22 states and by January/ February, it will have across the whole U.S. It is the best phone out and there is great more to come from T-Mobile. They will beat all there competion guranteed.
It will be $179.00 with a 2 year contract and $299.99 with an upgrade and $400.00 off the shelf.
why does everything need to be compared to the iphone this phone is completely diffrent why talk smack if you havent even used the phone yet i have tmobile and i have tried almost everything i have a n95 a iphone and a blackberry 8820 and the Omnia and they all have features of their own that i love and i will be happy to add the next generation to my collection if ur a apple freak then dont look at other phones and complain keep wat u have and SHUT UP!!!!! lol
