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
mmm, the first google phone. The bluetooth prblem will be surely solved (obex object push) not like on iPhone coz the phone is open-source, and there are more oppurtunities to send and receive obex files on linux. The very important thing that iphone and winMobile
I like the new Android OS, looks better and easier to use than S60 OS...the specs are ok, could be better. The price is very competitive. I think I'm gonna buy the new touchscreen 5800 ExpressMusic from Nokia.
just letting people know Tmobile will be offering 3G by the time this phone is released. so 10-22-08 all tmobile in major cities will have 3G service.
Im excited I just upgraded to the Curve because the wing wasnt as great to me, just sent it back today and ordered online. The sucky thing is its not always 180 bucks. I have to pay 300 on it and because Im ordering online Cust Serv wont or cant do anything to credit the remaining amount even though I should qualify for the full discount.But regaurdless of video record which most people dont even care about that it's going to be a great phone, maybe some technical glitches to begin with and beleive me I Know the Iphone had problems with AT&T it will be a good phone and people will love it, Tmobile made a good move with this phone, finally something that is as good as the Iphone!
All i can say is, the phone itself SUCKS.. the Features are GREAT tho... i'm just gonna wait till LG or Samsung comes out with their Android phones that are better designed...
- It's a 3G phone without video conference;
- It has a camera but doesn't record video;
- It has also bluetooth but no other use except MONO headset;
- Haven't found but I doubt it has flash player;
- the battery will last around 4h;
- it comes with a 2-yr plan;
why is it soooooo good ?
not because I like nokia, but N95 has a lot more functions and was released years ago with tons of apps.
the price maybe is worth... let's see the next version and I do hope it is not like iPhone that launched a second version far away from the functions found on other phones.
google phones ??
you must be kidding me
company so large but produces such feature phone ?
even china replica phones has more feature than this.
if this phones is below RM800 i will rather buy china smart phones.
i am using N82 and i dont feel so special on this android OS i will still stick with symbian becasue symbian has over 1000+ app and games available now
but i personal think android os can beat Symbian UIQ used on most sony smart phones
we shall see how many piece of cake that google can own in mobile industry.
I had 4 different iphones, each one crapped out worse then the last. For all you iphone lovers, IT'S NOT A MOBILE PHONE! The iphone lacked in the same departments as the G1 as far as VIDEO AND BLUETOOTH, now for the open platform on the Android software, that is boss. Apple tried to dominate it's OS and failed once the iphone was unlocked. Why is it that an unlocked version of the phone is better than the original?
The G1 will be the next step for software creators and help any mobile phone manufacturers. Don't knock the first version because most of you haven't held one yet. Who knows maybe the third party apps will blow your simple little minds.
david, 24 Sep 2008nice phone and i liked the google os buy i don't like the bluetooth its v2.0 but no possibilit... moreRead my comment posted one minute after yours. This HTC phone sucks. Go for the HTC Touch HD all the way!!!!!
The HTC Touch HD looks way better than this. The design of this phone is not as good and it is quite thick. The weight of it is a problem as well. This phone isn't going to be as good as I thought it would be. It's really ugly. It looks like a phone made by a tryhard touchscreen brand. Who designed it. It better not have been the people from HTC cause if their next phones are going to look like this, I ain't gonna buy it. Anyway, as I said, the HTC Touch HD is way better looking than this thing.
nice phone and i liked the google os buy i don't like the bluetooth its v2.0 but no possibility send files in bluetoooth. the 3.5g technology very fast 7.2 mbps. wi-fi and gps nice additions, nice camera and ram two...
This phone does beat iPhone in every aspect. Live with this, Applefreaks.
As far as i know, this is good design for an entry phone. though HTC dint do anything innovative, its still a better design. It has QWERTY (slide out) key pad and is still slim. Its packed with the features which are quite common and has good harware specs too. blue tooth and multimedia are the areas to be concentrated. Users are very much used to those features. but if this is the trick to shell out more money from customers then its a bad move fom HTC and Google.(just as apple did)
The Specs look rly promising! I wanted to Add that You can play with the Source Code on this phone to e.g. modify your OS or to create own programs!
Battery time Looks rly good! Average camera w/o flash is a little sad. But overall the Specs kills!
The only thing I worry about is the TouchDisp...Hope they make it real good...
