T-Mobile debuts the G1. Competition for the iPhone? Not really....


The T-Mobile G1 debuted today and the blogosphere is buzzing with reviews. The biggest reason is that it's the first phone to use the Google Android software. Could this phone really be competition for the iPhone? From what I've read so far, I don't think so. I myself don't have an iPhone (yet), I do however use T-Mobile and I'd rather get a hacked iPhone before getting the G1. But that's just me.

UPDATE 9/24/08: I wanted to add a video I just saw from Google's official YouTube channel. Scroll all the way to the bottom to see the video. And I wanted to give you a link to the official Adroid site.
Check out the official G1 site for an overview and details on the features.

Here are some reviews:

This is a nice chart from Gizmodo comparing some of the more important features:

And here are some videos of the G1:
