How fast does the email get to the phone?

I use googles hosted domains and I am thinking about getting this phone.

When an email comes into your hosted account, how fast does it get picked up by your G1?

Googles hosted domain

A quick question, does the G1 allow you to use Googles hosted domain? I use google to host my domain and therefore my email and calendar. It has the exact same interface as gmail does and runs using googles server and software, it uses my domain instead of the gmail suffix.

Anyone have any experience with this?

I have a question for the reps.

I have pre-ordered my G1 phone way back since they announced it.. I did receive it on Oct 21st.. Well i wasnt sure if it went through becuase i didnt receive any notification so on Oct. 13 I went back online and said i was still elgible for my upgrade.. therefore, i figured it didnt go through, and ordered myself the G1.. Well today i get the news that i have another G1 phone waiting for me at my house.. I am so in love with this phone that i would like to keep both of them.. What would happen if i were to keep it? I dont mind being charged for the 2 devices because i expect to be charged.. Please let me know what you all think about this.. Thank you in advance..

Keyboard on White version

From pictures I have viewed online, I think the keyboard on the White model is exactly the same as the one on the Bronze model. Any confirmation? The keyboard sucks because it's so hard to see.

Last Chance: Any Video Capture?

I have my G1 boxed to be returned. Not having a video camera is a deal breaker for me. I thought an app would come out to take care of it, then Rich said: "That's something that would probably require specific API support. I doubt it's there, or someone would have done it by now." ... »

Unless someone can give me some hope, this phone is gone. I will await the Samsung Behold.

Usage tracking

I've been month to month for a while now on another network and I'm considering going to T-Mobile. I've been interested in the G1; however, the thing I've not been able to find any information on is wether or not google tracks your usage (i.e. What websites you visit). Anyone know or have info on this?

Touch Screen

Just the end the debate. The G1 is a PRESSURE SENSITIVE TOUCH SCREEN!!!!!! You can use almost anything on it (finger, pen, stylist, ect.). The only heat sensitive touch screen I can think of is the IPhone

Anyone else's G1 rebooting when you turn off the wi-fi? I click it off, the phone reboots, wi-fi is still on when it reboots, then I click it off again and it's fine. It's happened every time I do it.
