    Showdown: HTC T-Mobile G1 VS. iPhone 3G
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Here are some major differences you'll notice: iPhone 3G has a multi-touch screen while the G1 just has a touch screen (meaning it can't track multiple simultaneous gestures) although it does have a trackball and QWERTY keyboard; the G1 doesn't have true video playback capabilities (although it does have video-streaming capabilities via YouTube) while the iPhone 3G does; Apple's reported battery life for iPhone 3G on standby time is significantly longer than the G1's; iPhone 3G has support for Microsoft Exchange, while G1 doesn't.

    So specifications-wise, the iPhone 3G appears to have the G1 beat. We'll just have to see which one outperforms the other when we get our hands on the G1 soon. Google Android better be one hell of an operating system if HTC wishes to compete with the hugely successful iPhone accompanied by its prolific App Store.

    I read today where it will have push gMail. Now, I have a ton of accounts that I manage through one gMail account. Having them pushed to my phone is a big plus. I have MobileMe, but I don't use my mac account for much. I just cannot seem to give it up.

    Third party software will be a big boost for gPhone. I think it will appeal to Windows Mobile users moreso than iPhone owners. I've yet to check it out, but the G1 doesn't have the "elegance" factor of the iPhone. Now, could I do away with the elegance if it runs Slingplayer, Sirius and pushes all of my email. Then again, my job puts me in front of a computer most of the time.:D

    Even I am using the iPhone almost ever since it was released. But that doesn't mean I can't LOVE gPhone :). There is nothing wrong with appreciating the better one. Is it? :)

    The G1 seems like a pretty cool phone, but when it comes down to looks, god the iPhone is so much sexier :)

    P.S. Hey Lincoln, Chris, iCafe. :)

    Not necessarily. Of course the features are important to me but looks matter almost as much to me, and I hate showing people my phone.

    I don't think I'll ever understand this. I don't think gadgets are sexy.

    Maybe if you put the iPhone in something low cut and mesh....:D:p

    Do you think some cars are "better looking" or "nicer" than others?
