Full Review of the T-Mobile G1 Android Device 135

palmsolo writes "Want to see the biggest and most in-depth review of the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device from a person who has been using it for a week? Check out over 260 photos and 5 videos of the device and just about every screen of the Google Android OS. Find out how well HTC, T-Mobile and Google did with this first-generation device." I played with one for a few minutes and found it a solid unit. It feels less polished than the iPhone, but the screen and keyboard are great. It'll be a real test of Open Source to see what happens with the iPhone App Store's closed system vs. Android's open one.

    You do not make sense, a phone that just makes calls doesn't need an OS as complex as this. This OS is needed ONLY for smart phones. You might as well ask for a ferrari to put their engines into mopeds. No moped needs a 800 horse power en... I WANT ONE!

    Just what we need...the average cell phone user having to decide wheater [sic] or not something they are about to install is nefarious.

    Mama's gonna check out all your applications for you, mama won't let anything dirty get through, mama gonna keep baby cozy and warm...

    The point is, every user knows exactly what the application can do, and the application can be denied at the API-level by the OS from accessing to those features. Android, like BlackBerry and Symbian, treats users like grown-ups who are capable of making decisions about whom they can trust, and just how much trust they can afford to those vendors.

    If your cell phone spams everyone you know, it's because you installed an unvetted application, let it access everything it asked for, and ran the application. Way to go, Einstein.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
