I have a very good friend, former Cells for Cells HERO and strong supporter of CFC, Jeff Pickerell, who works at T-Mobile in Kansas. He had a very strong recommendation to wait for some new phones from T-Mobile that will be coming out after the HTC G1.
I love T-Mobile and have always been happy with their service and especially their customer service. I was very happy to hear they were finally providing a data plan with 3G.
I currently use the old Moto Razr V3. I love how thin it is. And that really is the only feature that is keeping it in my pocket. I totally want to upgrade – I feel like I am missing the boat as this world moves toward mobility.
I also played with the iPhone for the first time and have been following Kevin Rose on his blog as he samples different apps for the iPhone. (Brilliant marketing by Apple, btw.)
The first “review” I ran into was the following from Gadget Labs at Wired.com. There is some PG language.
This review makes me just a tiny nervous about moving to the G1; but the guys at Gadget Labs seem a tiny bit biased. Hmmm?
So I did a little bit more looking and found a very solid review that compares the G1 to the iPhone. Seth Porges at Popular Mechanics does a great job with the comparison of the two devices.
Thank you, Seth, for some great insight. Now I feel empowered to move away from my ancient Moto Razr into this new world mobility.
/screech to a halt sound / but Jeff tells me to wait. T-Mobile is coming out with “a ton” of new phones with touch screens and 3G and 10MP cameras. So if you love T-Mobile, Google, and Android, you will have some very exciting choices to make in the very near future.
I wonder if we’ll have some phones to recycle after all of these launches.
