    G1's are really nice, though iPhones can be really cool once jailbroken.. I don't know bro, sorry.

    G1 has a real keyboard, which is a great plus if you email, no having to use a stupid useless on screen keyboard.

    once rooted (which is really easy to do) you can mess around with custom firmwares and things like tethering via wifi or bluetooth. (yes, which means you can connect to the net with your ds anywhere if you really want to)

    it has a lot of good free apps too.

    if you have any more specific questions, just ask.

    G1, i honestly never saw the reason behind the iPhone, i'm not a great fan of touch phones. Yet again its down to your choice.

    I own an original iPhone and my coworker has a G1. I personally like mine better. He switched from an iPhone to a G1 cause he switched companies. He stated he wishes he could have stayed with the iPhone though.

    Just $.02

    I really don't see the point in these android phones, overhyped if you ask me.

    I don't really see the point in the iPhone either. To me it all depends on what you want a phone to do, and neither seem like they're full of necessities.

    i've been using the iphone since it came out and very happy with it.

    i never used the g1 or windows mobile phone so dont have an opinion about them.

    iPhone user since 3G. Love it, I get all my email, txt, IMing, music and phone calls in one device. The only think that's dragging down my exp is AT&T. . .Worst fucking carrier EVER!

    I would stay away from the G1 just because it's crap hardware wise to run Android (see freezing/Hanging problems). Wait for the hardware revision when it comes out this year. But if you're looking to get one now, pick up the new 3GS model or the $99 3G iPhone model.

    You should also look into a Palm Pre if you're a QWERTY person

    Edit: (iPhone) If you got fat thumbs or index fingers you might want to test drive the onscreen keyboard at a store. Cause that will cause some problems by pressing the wrong key while typing. Worst case you still get one and you type with your pinky finger.

    I got an iPhone and I have to say that I am really happy with it. The whole interface is really well made and very intuitive. And if you care for doing jailbreak you can have a really great variety of apps (like taking videos and things like that...). But the G1 looks very good as well. I guess there isn`t such a big difference... Both great devices!

    I would recommend to watch walkthroughs of both phones and then to decide [​IMG]

    That would be the APP store. No other smart phone offers anything like it to get new applications.

    I need a phone like the one I have now (a sidekick lx) and the G1 fits the bill. I just hope it has notes, alarm, to-do list, IM, all that. I need it.

    Ehh, hrm. I will have to disagree, but whatever you think. iPhone is far from toy.
