I have a google G1 phone, which i think is better than the iphone for entering content (It has a Keyboard), Although i think that the iphone may be better for downloads and music.

I may try an iphone when my contract runs out

I just got the Samsung Behold. It was either that, or the G1. Since I work from home three days out of the week, and I'm already paying $60 a month for internet, I don't really want to pay for phone internet also. In that mindset, I decided to not go for the G1.. but I really really do like the Android interface. A lot. :/

As far as the internet goes on the g1 its out of this world, really fast if i'm at home it changes to my wireless setup so its superquick, since i use googlemail for my emails, it updates them on the phone on the fly.

There are a couple of sore points, which i miss when i had my N95, the first is that you can't take videos, and second the camera is pure crap, whereas on my old N95 is was pretty decent.

Another sore point is the keyboard is so tiny you need the fingers of a 2 year old to be able to use it effectively. Apart from that its not a bad phone.

would i upgrade the G1 Phone when available, ~ Probably not, Might give the Iphone a bash

Does the Iphone have video ?? and whats the camera like??

The new version dubbed cupcake has the on screen keyboard and a camcorder feature. They say it is out on the dev phones now, and should hit the public in May. I hear it is supposed to blow the iphone away.

Rumours eh they spread like wildfire ..............

I heard the GPhone was supposed to beat the iphone hands down - what happened there

Like it or not Apple coined the market with the Iphone and proberly will continue to dominate the market in yrs to come.

Iphone does have video camera capabilities and the inbulit camera is 2 meg pixels (not brillant but if u want brill pics then get a decent camera
The iphone aint the superphone that its made out to be and does have some annoying quirks such as the sound but its still and excellant phone and with the addons available makes it even better.

I doubt that m8 - the iphone is a breeze to type with the onscreen keyboard.Can knock emails or anything out in seconds its that easy to use.And its all touch screen no need for extra gimmicks such as touch pen etc.

It is rumored that a new iPhone will be released in the next couple of months with the release of version 3.0 of its OS that will include video and video editing capabilities on the level of the Flip Camera.

It is also rumored that the current low-end model will be available for less than $100.00 at the same time.

Will have to wait and see on both accounts.

They teamed up with T-Mobile in the United States which many people see as a company for teens and not for business. Others see them as a second tier company as they don't have a lot of penetration in the market and their marketshare reflects this.

Whereas Apple signed their exclusive deal with the company that has the largest wireless network in North America. They also got that company to eat 60% of the costs of a new device by allowing them to force users to get a 2 yr contract with an expensive data plan.

Like it or not Apple coined the market with the Iphone and proberly will continue to dominate the market in yrs to come.
The Blackberry Storm is actually a better device than the iPhone and probably has as much if not more application support than the iPhone. While the App store has a lot of apps, there is a lot of repetition and things that are plain silly. However whereever there is an iPhone app, you can be sure that there is probably a Blackberry clone around the corner. Unfortunately, the Storm is a Verizon exclusive and will be hobbled by their obsolete CDMA network. Verizon will be better able to compete in 2012 when they switch to LTE

I'll not deny that the iPhone is a strong device in the market but it didn't create anything that wasn't already being done for a decade previous to its release. People have been Blackberry and Palm devices long before the iPhone and they will continue to use them. Especially, since you can't get Microsoft Outlook (and therefore Exchange) on your iPhone yet.

Apple isn't really the first to the market in new segments these days. They just seem to do better marketing than some of their competitors. Even their new "Mini Tablet" product that is rumored is already available from HTC in the form of the HTC Shift.

I use both, blackberry tour and a iphone 3G but I have two forums. One is a blackberry site and the other is a apple site. For getting things done I prefer my blackberry but for media and internet I like my iphone better.

I've been using a BlackBerry Storm the past month and I'm very happy with it so far.

I upgraded from the original iphone to the 3GS when it came out and I still love it!

Mobile Me looks pretty cool -- I want to give the trial and a run and see how that goes but long term, I'd prefer to use my dedicated server instead since I already pay for it.

What a lovely mini Brandon

Thats a classic and a great video, I guess for every year that goes by, things really do get better

I'm seriously thing of getting an iphone next? but in the UK only O2 do it and thus can just set the price with no competition I might wait until other operators are given the chance, I've been with T Mobile for the past 12 years, I've even forgot what they used to be called?? how sad is that
