So it looks like all the smartphones are attracting a lot of attention these days, especially when Google Android went official announcing that it’s available on T-Mobile G1 starting from October 22 2008.
Gizmodo has put together a handy graph that pits the G1, feature for feature, against some of its contemporaries.
As you can see here, the T-Mobile G1 is the least expensive of the bunch, ringing in at a mere $179 with a two-year contract. The size of its HVGA touchscreen display is only second to the iPhone, but the Android gPhone has the added advantage of a full QWERTY keyboard to boot. Talk time on the battery is on par with the rest, and the camera seems to be about the same as the other HTC phones (Tilt, Touch Pro). The two most notable deficits on the T-Mobile G1, however, are the lack of Exchange support and the lack of desktop synchronization.
I wonder when will Google Android hit markets other than the United States. Would be nice to see what cool stuffs they have built, and not to mention DRM free MP3s from Amazon too!
HTC touch is using windows mobile right? maybe that’s part of the price we have to pay to microsoft. Apple made their own OS and hardware that’s the reason it is cheaper comparatively.
but windows mobile sucks. blackberry os is unbeatable. and it takes 8 gig cards, so it has more storage capacity than all of them.
Blackberry might have good OS but their keyboard sucks. The keys are made for girls or executives (tiny and/or skinny fingers) (sissy hands)

Does anyone know if the G1 phone will be able to exchange in the future or will they launch it with an exchange feature? Also why would Google/Tmobile launch such a phone with out exchange capability?
i am going back and forth between Sprint’s TOUCH PRO and the G1 Phone. My plan is up with Tmobile and i am so torn between the two phones, any solid comparisons out there?
Please advise….. Thank you in advance for your support!
Ps I have a Dash (an HTC phone), which uses windows and it has been the best phone I have had thus far.
