Default Proud new owner of a G1

I love this phone to death. Definitely the best phone i ever bought. I was also excited to hear that it runs on the Android distro of Linux, so people can write their OWN programs for the phone and, because of the linux license agreement, it MUST be made available to other users for free ((though i believe upgraded versions can come with a pricetag)).

Touch screen as well as a qwerty keyboard when it's opened.

My only problems so far are:
Battery life is less than that of my old flip phone
There are always 6 programs open and you can't close out of them unless you download a prograam that force closes them all.
The camera is GREAT... when there's a LOT of light. The normal camera program doesn't offer much in the way of adjusting settings, but there's several programs that work better.

Any other G1 owners on here?

My friend has one. I like it but i hate how its bent towards the bottom.

I think the G2 or whatever (the new version) looks a bit better.

i would never use google stuff (excepting the search engine and google earth).
they spy on everything, so its to risky for me.
i also dont like the layout of this phone.

i'm happy with my Sony Ericsson X1. i can use all the google apps (google maps, youtube, gmail, ...) with my phone and hardware is much better
i would just love to use android ... windows mobile sucks a bit.

yes, unfortunately it was a bit expensive ... but i wanted to have this phone, cuz of the great 800x480 pixel touchscreen and all the other cool stuff else i would have bought an iphone. but i dont like the look of the iphone, in addition it is more interesting for gamers (i dont play so much)

PCServe: I don't really consider it off topic really lol. All the phones mentioned fit in the same category so it wouldn't be off topic to include them in the discussion.

The Egyptian: lol i was almost sad at that post. My brother/dad have a sprint phone that uses the Windows Mobile technology... not really a fan of it personally, hence why i went with the Android mobile o.s.

I don't like the g1.
Why are you going to have a full screen touch screen phone and still want the slide out qwerty?
I have an iPhone and I love it to death.
jailbroken, unlocked, awesome.
I can get free apps and apps made from 3rd parties.
Also, a major flaw of the G1.....no multitouch on the touch screen....
LAME!
I still think it's a cool phone, I really like how you can have it unlock by tracing a certain pattern on the screen.Nice.
But I still love my iPhone more. :]
