T-Mobile G1 and My Thoughts

The T-Mobile G1 is the best phone in the history of the world! Have you not seen the video reviews and seen the specs? GPS, 3G, Touchscreen, WiFi, etc, etc.

That’s what I thought until I started to delve deeper into what it can ACTUALLY do. Sure it has a built in compass with a nifty gyro thingy but it lacks a few key features.

From what I’ve seen on the net I was ready to drop my Blackberry Curve and pre-order one of these bad boys. Until I found it can’t do UMA, no 3.5mm headphone jack, and can’t be used an a modem for a laptop. All very key features that my Curve currently has and I use on a regular basis.

Android, what are you doing! I’m willing to over the 3.5mm jack but no UMA or dial up networking for my laptop? My HTC Dash had that later of the 3 and that was 2 phones ago for me.

Get it together boys and I’ll reconsider dropping my hard earned cash on your gadget.
