    RoughlyDrafted is a site set up by an Apple fanboy to trash everyone other than Apple (especially Microsoft), so I'm not sure that I would believe everything that I read there.

    The amusing thing is that T-Mobile has a LOT of AWS spectrum for the number of customers they have. For example, in my area (Fort Collins, CO) they have BOTH the F block (20MHz) and an A block...

    T-Mobile 3G (in the US) uses UMTS Band IV (AWS). AT&T 3G uses bands II and V.

    Let me clarify a few things:

    You CANNOT make a handset that does not support band IV (AWS) support it through...

    Live in Boulder, CO!

    I was just looking at my G1 and 3G is definitely live in Boulder, CO!

    Yeah, although that wouldn't make a whole lot of sense for a released product.

    Of course, Microsoft is wacky about release candidates. For example, Whistler (Windows XP) had two planned release...

    Yeah, M8 was pretty rough. The first build I ever ran was M7, and I remember that the "big new" feature in M8 was that it used XUL for the menus.

    Android is a lot more polished than that, though....

    Yeah, I've had a bunch of WinMo devices:

    Well, I have to agree and disagree. T-Mobile clearly has been neglecting the WinMo market. To be entirely honest, though, I think that WinMo sucks.

    Symbian, on the other hand, is pretty decent. I...

    Honestly, WinMo sucks (and I say this as someone who workedfor Microsoft last summer). But the Dash is a pretty good phone, and with Opera Mini and the GMail Java client (and a 3rd-party Java VM)...

    Yeah, to add to this - AT&T uses bands II and V; Europe (and most of the rest of the world) uses primarily band I.

    This hasn't been true for years.

    Charging is handled by the phone and/or the battery, not by the "charger". The "charger" is just a 5v power supply.

    I don't think so. You could use GMail and send the message to yourself.

    GMail is absolutely fantastic. It's got great spam filtering, lots of storage space, and is easy to use. The best thing about it is search - it's fast (<1 second) and it searches the entire message...

    Why I love the G1

    There have been a lot of comparisons between the G1 and the iPhone. Here are the things I like about the G1 vs. the iPhone 3G:

    Most of the devices I've ever owned were made by HTC, and I've never considered any of them - from my Wallaby to my current Excalibur - particularly "stylish".

    Why is there all this hating of the G1?

    Is it as sexy as the iPhone? No. But it doesn't look any worse than the Tilt, Magician, or any of the other slide-out QWERTY phones out there.

    Be happy that you got to see it. I have a friend who works for Google and he won't even confirm that he has one (although I strongly suspect that he does), let alone let me see or touch it.
