Summary: Though we're not in love with the design and would have liked some additional features, the real beauty of the T-Mobile G1 is the Google Android platform, as it has the potential to make smartphones more personal and powerful. That said, it's not quite there yet, so for now, the G1 is best suited for early adopters and gadget hounds, rather than consumers and business users.
Pros: The T-Mobile G1 features a full QWERTY keyboard, 3G support, Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. The Google Android operating system offers good integration with Google applications as well as access to the Amazon MP3 Store and YouTube. As more applications become available, the G1 will also become a more powerful smartphone for all types of users.
Cons: The G1 doesn't include a standard heaphone jack and lacks Microsoft Exchange support. There are some annoying design quirks that make the smartphone uncomfortable to hold and difficult to use. You can't save downloaded applications to a memory card. Speakerphone quality wasn't the greatest.
Summary: Apple did the cell phone market a huge favor in placing a newfound emphasis on fun and ease-of-use with iPhone’s user interface. T-Mobile, Google, and HTC have carried on Apple’s work in the G1 by unleashing a UI that’s arguably just as fun and easy to use, but is also built on an open platform.
Pros: Android experience is excellent; Web browser is amongst best available on cell phones;
