Today is the day that T-Mobile announces an iPhone-like phone, G1, powered by Google's Android — open source OS for mobile phones. Android itself is a very interesting, but quite a controversial project.

Anyway, without going into details of Android, I have just read unofficial leaks available now at TmoNews, also through TechCrunch and now dozens of blogs worldwide.


What is claimed to be confirmed is:

  • One touch access to: Search, Maps, Gmail, Youtube, Calendar, and Google Talk
  • Gmail account and data plan required
  • GPS
  • 3.1 mp camera, no video recording
  • No stereo bluetooth (A2DP)
  • Dimensions: 4.6 x 2.16 x 0.63 in
  • Weighs 5.6 ounces
  • 480×320 65K color screen
  • 5 hour talk time, 130 hour standby time
  • Expandable up to 8GB

Interesting is:

  • how will it really compare to iPhone
    • it looks like iPhone will be still superior in terms of hardware
  • how 3rd party developers will welcome Android
    • it will be very difficult to compete with iPhone and even Symbian as a platform
    • T-Mobile is expected to sell 600k of these phones this year, compared to 13m of iPhones

At this moment I still think iPhone is superior in terms of hardware and much better in terms of SDK and as a software platform. The big advantage of Android is that it's 100% open source — so this gives a great advantage. We will just see.
