I am also one of those people that would much rather run Linux on my PCs at home, but don't because i am in the IT field so i need to stay current on Windows. Anyhow, I understand people wanting to wait and recommend most do that. I am not usually the type to jump on a product at Version 1 until some updates and public testing has been done. But i am looking forward to Android's growing pains!
Nice...I really haven't been able to find much software at all for the G1. Have you? I also heard the app store isn't quite what it is supposed to be, but I really don't like the idea of paying for software. (I'm not talking about warez either), I just mean freeware.

I haven't been looking for software for the G1 other then on the Market. Without anyway to flash the original firmware back on to the phone from the PC, i won't be downloading random apps! There are way to many malicious people out there to be grabbing rogue apps.

Have you found anything good? I am looking forward to the IPhone type virtual keyboard, task manager and a file browser =)

I am really looking foward to a touch keyboard ne kind! I would really like a task manger also and something that allows for an easier soft reset.
For dling random apps you can always hard reset your phone. That's most def not hard

But what if the app was written to destroy all data on the phone? Not sure if one is out there yet, but i am sure there will be one. Until TMobile releases a RUU i will not be downloading non-market apps unless there is a lot of feed back on it.

Default Tmobile G1

Well, I finally got to the store and got to play around on a G1, and I have to say, I wasn't all that pleased. The layout reminded me of a regular old cell phone and I wasn't a big fan of having a bunch of icons on the home screen. Now, I assume since it's designed to have an open os, there will be ways to customize it all, but all in all, I was disappointed. Plus, the keyboard was TERRIBLE. You really couldn't tell if you were pushing the button or not. I did like the feel of the slide out screen. It felt like it had some stability and wouldn't break. The screen was really sweet though, and I love the touchscreen. Also, I wish the buttons on the front were laid out a little different. They look very archaic. ...just my 2 cents.

My Husband is on his SECOND phone today. He received his G1 when they first came out and it started giving him trouble. He said the ''second'' batch is suppose to be the batch that is working properly.. So, we will see. But, I played with his phone and there is NO WAY I will lay down my wing for the G1.

Wow, really? Eek, well my plans for getting one just took a halt.
Well, we will see once the software starts pouring out for it. As it stands now, I really don't like the overall feel of the software, and the look either. I could get used to the ugly buttons on the front, but navigating is a pain in the arse. The only pros is the screen is beautiful.

I bought 2 G1's with the intent on selling both of them and the phone started calling my name, so I was forced to start playing with one of them and now own a G1 There are definitely things I like about the herald better, especially with OT 7.3. but the G1 has it's perks too. The keyboard is nice once you get used to it although I can't type as fast as on my wing. The screen itself is brilliant and kills the wing. Speed, both with 3g and with the stronger processor also kills the wing. My largest drawback right now is the difficulty of syncing my outlook calendar with google calender as I keep getting an error message. IWhen someone develops a program so that the G1 can sync with activesync it will be the greatest day of my life! Overall, the wing does have it's perks, but once you get used to the speed and enhanced capabilities of the G1 you will not want to go back. Now if only someone would hurry up and develop an on-screen keyboard........
