    If you can’t beat them… publicly humiliate customers who want them! That appears to be the tactic that Verizon Wireless is taking with the T-Mobile G1, releasing a long list of reasons why both the G1 and T-Mobile suck and you should stick with Big Red:Does it seem ironic how many times the word “limited” [...]

    Get on the train, or stand in front of it. Either is fine by me.

    Half that list will have an application solution.

It cracks me the hell up to see VERIZON of all companies use 'limitations' on the offensive. I've never felt as limited with any service I've ever had, as I do with Verizon.

    Hey the first gen iPhone didn't have 3G, GPS, or Exchange. And the 2nd gen doesn't have a compass or physical keyboard. But the user experience drives the sales and love of the iPhone, and will continue to do so. The same can be said about Android.

    The G1 is really just a hardware platform, an open source hardware platform. I'd rather have all the hardware now and upgrade the phone with software then be stuck with a device that is limited because it doesn't have a hardware widget.

    Run verizon, run. For in 6 months all you've said will be fixed, by the community, and you will have no way to criticize the phone you too will be forced to carry on your service. BWA-HA-HA-HA
