Review: HTC G1
The G1 is an interesting animal. It is clearly the first version of the Android platform, and happens to be housed in a less-than-thrilling piece of hardware. There's no doubt it is a strong first effort. I expect to see Android become more refined, offer a fuller feature set, and become a stronger competitor in the marketplace.
In the mean time, the G1 is a nice alternative to Windows Mobile if you're in the market for a touch-based device that is available on the T-Mobile network. For my money, it has a few too many flaws and omissions.
The camera is slow, offers few options and doesn't record video. There's no 3.5mm headset jack. There's no native video playback client. The phone is heavy and bulky. The QWERTY keyboard is so-so, and battery life was not stellar.
