Do you go iPhone or do you go G1 Android?

Posted in General, Technology with tags , , , , , , , on Thursday, 16 October 2008 by Deems

Google’s phone the G1 running it’s Android OS has been released recently and it’s hailed to be the iPhone successor/killer – but upon further investigation and actual use of the phone it would appear you might be better off holding of for a G2 or the G1 v2.0 instead.

To find out why, read Erick Schonfeld’s post on TechCrunch where he explains his experience with the G1 in comparison to the iPhone and you’ll quickly see that, even though the G1 has some nice features and those missing on the iPhone, there are still things that need a little work before it really does become the competitor or successor of the iPhone.

Illustrated guide to Mobile OSes

Gizmodo have done a great job of putting together an illustrated guide to mobile operating systems comparing the pros and cons of each. Go and take a look for yourself. Which will you be upgrading to in the near future?

Personally I’ve played with HTCs running Windows Mobile platform and an iPhone. While iPhone’s OS seems quicker and sleeker in comparison to Windows Mobile OS I would not go the iPhone route because of common things, that are missing, such as copy and paste, MMS, SMS forwarding, etc. I’d really like to take the Samsung Omnia for a test-drive.

For South Africans, who have been interested and waiting for news on the G1 – it’s coming to SA soon via Vodadom.
