I bought my G1 phone last October and have not regretted the choice at all. All the media hype, from CNET to Tech Cruch have done nothing but hype the IPhone. Best I Phone apps of the week are on CNET every week. That is fine, and for those who have an IPhone..hope you are enjoying it.
Going to make a statement though about the G1..apps are great..clunky phone because of keyboard I must admit, but use virtual keyboard now. Have Google Voice..not only the account, but the application. My gmail has always been pushed...along with company email. Work around to get gmail accounts pushed on Iphone I read.
Anyway, those who like I tunes,understand. I understand the love for the Iphone also. But for those who are looking for an alternative, look for the android based phones.
