Or wait for the G2?
Google G2 Android phone breaks cover, photos leaked | T3 magazine
I'm currently with T-Mobile and plan to stay with them for a number of reasons. However, I'd like an Android phone and the only T-Mob option is the G1.
I currently use a Windows powered phone and I'm generally pleased with it. I'm torn between the G1 and a new Win phone.
The question then is simple; is the G1 worth getting? Especially now with other manufacturers beginning to produce Android phones. Is it perhaps better to wait and see what T-Mob do?
Who uses a G1 here, what are your likes and dislikes? I really need to make a decision.... but can't
I have the G1 and love it. I would probably say the main issue with it is battery life, but what I have been hearing it isn't much different to many of the other latest 3g smartphones. Android is fantastic, lots of tweaks and apps now available on the market,(paid and free). The camera also is a bit naff if you arent in ideal conditions, so hang on for latest hardware if thats what you are after. Otherwise Android is the same on all handsets at the moment so the only pull from one android machine to another is the hardware specs.
It may be worth having a look at the site below, ive found it useful when i bought my last phone. It has usually got all the technical info plus reviews and a forum. There are currently over 800 comments about the G1.
T-Mobile G1 - Full phone specifications
I have a G1 and if I could enter in to a civil partnership with it I would.
A Google bod mentioned that there will be 18 different handsets with Android on them by the end of the year... So it may be worth waiting a little while... http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/0...-by-years-end/

The G1 is getting better and better with each update it just depends on what you are going to use it for.
I'm hanging on for Palm's Pre (but then, I'm currently a die-hard Treonaut, so that's hardly surprising).
I have a G1 and it is fantastic.
It was ideal for me because I already use google mail and calendars, so it automatically works.
The apps are fantastic, and mostly free.
A colleague has a G2, the G2 is slightly smaller, has better battery life.
It also has more onboard flash, but they take 16/32GB microsSD so that doesn't count so much.
I prefer the G1, same O/S same CPU/RAM - but it has a keyboard - so that wins for me.
but the real feature is android. linux rocks.
(noobs might need to RTFM, there is more than one desktop !!!!)
tbh, Windows Mobile has good Google integration now too. If the only reason for choosing an Android phone is to make your Google-life easier, there's little need.
I have a HTC Touch Pro and use Gmail (2 accounts), Google Calendars, Gmail contacts, Blogger and more!
Since getting my Touch Pro, there is one thing though... once you've had a keyboard there's no going back!
Having used windows mobile for a few generations now I love the idea of a smartphone/pocketpc but I'm getting fed up of the constant crashing and problems with Windows Mobile.
My Orange contract is up for renewal soon and I'm really hoping they get a decent android based phone in. Don't want to jump networks if I can help it (long time customer with high spend means I get some pretty good deals), but given their current line up I might be forced to
vodafone as ^^Hi, where did he get his G2 from? I didn't know it was out yet?
lol , you know me ric. the attraction was more that it was a hackable telephone than a googley integrated one.If the only reason for choosing an Android phone is to make your Google-life easier, there's little need.
I had some apps crash. the phone is stable though.Having used windows mobile for a few generations now I love the idea of a smartphone/pocketpc but I'm getting fed up of the constant crashing and problems with Windows Mobile.
