Well since I'm not scheduled to get my G1 until or around Nov.10th, I went on my lunch break to T-Mobile. When I first grabbed the phone I was already amazed. What you see in the pictures and video DOESNT DO THE G1 JUSTICE. I expected to see this big bulky, dated looking phone. This phone is FANTABULOUS(fantastic+fabulous)lol!!.. The applications are great, the touch screen is wonderful, youtube videos are awesome etc The people that are complaining about the phone need to get over themselves. Just because it doesnt have a virtual keyboard lol. Unlike the Iphone, who really wants to type on the screen all day. The IPhone is nice but to be totally honest the G1 is major competition for this phone. The trackball is so responsive like no other. Im excited about getting mines. I dont know if going to play with the phone was better or worse for me. It takes some of the anticipation of receiveing my phone, but now i want to play with it more. IM IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!
