Default G1's Five most Obnoxious Flaws

I wouldn't be here for the users if I didn't put this out there for those of you who haven't seen it yet, to see.

It mentions several things, including the 1GB cap, hardware inadequacies and lack of video playback/recording (atm, I'm sure developers will be all over that). More after the jump..

Also, in the article is a link to another with plenty of nice pics.

The only thing that bugs me is the 1GB cap...

It does state that they MIGHT throttle you, not that they WILL. So ill wait for that to happen. Until then, im gonna enjoy the 3g speeds.

The data cap is total BS! The non-desktop sync and single google account piss me off too. I sure hope google does not take the way of locking things into them like apple did. That will make be avoid android forever. No video?? WTF. Those things sure make me want to wait for a better option.

Yeah, locked things rarely stay locked... but locking it in the first place seems to go againt the whole "Open" part of Android.

I'm reserving my judgement until the extend of this locking to an account is unveiled. Does it just apply to GMail, GTalk and contacts? Or does it go beyond that? I've been amped for Andoid since what feels likeforever, but if they screwed this up it could be a deal breaker for me.

It seems the issues people have are all very minor and will be easily resolved which makes them temporary at best.

Which is what makes the phone so great. If there is a problem, developers will make an app to fix it. Yay.

Worst case: Buy the phone outright for $399, have T-Mobile unlock it for you 90 days later, walk across the street to AT&T.

the single google account doesnt bother me cause im the only one using the phone. as for the video, u need to do a little bit more research cause video can be done, there just isnt an app included on the phone. u can dl it frm the android marketplace. as for the data cap, ill worry about it when and if it happens to me.

I have a personal and a business account with google so it really screws me. I relay all my business email thru gmail so i can use it sort of like an exchange server because i'm on so many different computers.

The editor does not have his facts straight.

Example:
Quote:
No multitouch on the G1 and there never will be, since the panel itself doesn't support it.
The G1 LCD panel is a capacitive touchscreen just like a iphone, so the only reason why it does not support it, probably has something to do with Android OS not supporting it yet.

Even this MP4 player has a capacitive touchscreen that has multi touch, skip to 7:56 mark:

"T-Mobile's just rolled back on their 1GB usage cap on their 3G plans for upcoming G1 Android customers, instead going to a hold-up-while-we-figure-this-out route. The statement they give now states that they can reduce throughput for "a small fraction" of users who are using too much data, but exact terms and limits are still being reviewed before they're finalized. Statement after the jump."
