First Android

Last week the first Android phone came out, I think it looks cheap and I’m disapointed at what HTC pulled off hardware wise but I thought I’d mention it anyway. The gist :

T-Mobile G1 showcases some of the most advanced capabilities of Android, by including a touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, accelerated 3D graphics, Wi-Fi and 3G support, GPS and accelerometer. The device won’t have an impressive design and it won’t be as easy to use as an iPhone, but it will certainly be able to run a lot of interesting applications.

The iPhone looks like it’s quite a bit ahead still but competition is good to have, especially considering how the app store is pissing developers off lately. More info on RWW.
