Oh hooray!

That was with heavy sarcasm. Don't blame me if they launch the GeekRoomView extension to Google Maps after three months of your almost useless T-sodding-Mobile chained handset sitting in its dock with its aGPS and camera activated. Oh, and send that "text message" to the bird in accounts and both of you start getting ads for teledildonics. This is Google, after all.

Joke: Because these things invariably turn out to be.

Yes, Aristotles...

...it's just a phone. And this is just a tech hardware blog, which is precisely why I'm very interested to read about it here.

The web is a big place - if you're offended, go and play somewhere else.

Yes. It would combine all the devices I carry into one and be an open platform as well. I may even try to learn Java for this.

This is a bad mock up surely?

I mean who would take a touchscreen phone and glue an 90's retro style bunch of buttons on the bottom? Yuck.

It makes my 2nd hand Samsung blackjack look positively gorgeous (hint: it is not and it runs Winblows Mobile [between hangs that is]).

Gooiephones only saving grace might be the software but at that price just buy an iphone and develop for that.

Hooray

Anything that isn't an iPhone is just fucking brilliant. I hate apple and the poxy proprietary iphone with a passion and if this gphone can help kill the iphone then I'll buy two.

@Aristotles...

Yes. It really is just you.

Although I hasten to add, the G1 is a little ugly. Can't wait to see what they put android on next. Also, I'm sure the axioms about early adopters apply... wait until the next release!

re: Sean/Isamu

You two have just reminded of an excellent bumper sticker that The Onion sell:

MY VOTE CANCELS OUT Y'ALLS

Out of interest, why would anyone hate a phone? iPhone, Googlephone, whatever. Did an iPhone touch you in an inappropriate place once or something?

Without multi-touch...

...its never going to take on the iPhone.

urgh

At least no one's going to steal that ugly piece of crap when you whip it out in the pub. Oh, but then at 158g you're not going to be carrying it in the first place. Was the design someone's school project?
