The T-Mobile G1 was officially announced yesterday and the comparisons to the iPhone started almost as soon as the last executive left the stage. But when you pair up the iPhone 3G and the T-Mobile G1, which device comes out as the winner? Or, is it too soon to tell?
For starters, the T-Mobile G1 has a brand new operating ... continued »

If Google's Rich Miner was a developer, he'd be coding for the iPhone; however, he's actually Group Manager for Mobile Platforms, and as such is more interested in boosting Android's profile with confident predictions that handsets based on the platform will wildly outsell Apple's cellphone.
"Once you have devices out there from Motorola, HTC, Samsung, and so on, there's a much ... continued »

Ever since the concept of a Google Phone or gPhone was suggested, pundits and analysts alike have theorised about the battle between it and the iPhone. Since Google's announcement of Android and the Open Handset Alliance, the side-taking has reached even headier heights; although there have been a few voices of relative reason - ARM's Warren East, for instance - ... continued »

So Mr. Warren East isn’t just an ARM executive, he is the friggin’ CEO. So when this guy says he doesn’t think the OHA’s Android will have much of an effect on the iPhone, I am listening.
I am especially listening since its risky business talking negatively, or too positively, about a pair of companies who both have handsets either in ... continued »

Let’s start with Verizon, they have been gradually losing market share ever since the release of the iPhone, and now all of the sudden they are releasing some really cool phones? Furthermore they have been in talks with Google and have even dropped their complaint regarding the 700MHz spectrum becoming open.
Sure, they probably aren’t anticipating the mobile wireless world becoming ... continued »

Nicholas Carr's mobile demands are pretty straightforward: he wants a Google cloud behind his iPhone. In a piece entitled "Google, Apple and the future of mobile computing" he puts forward a persuasive argument for why the next stage in ultraportable technology will build upon the established relationship between the search giant and Cupertino, with Apple building the gadgets and the UI's ... continued »

Google-Phone.com reported that Google does not deny or admit to the existence of Google phone prototypes being floated around to wireless operators such as T-Mobile USA, AT&T and Verizon Wireless. According to the same sources close to this matter, Google hasn’t been too shy about sharing specs of the phones to phone manufacturers.
The Google phone project currently consists of creating numerous ... continued »

Looking a little like an iPhone that has been through a hot-wash, Samsung's recently announced P520 cellphone might be the ideal non-Apple alternative for those with smaller hands or pockets. Just 88 x 54 x 8.9mm (shorter and thinner than the LG Prada) and weighing a mere 102g, it's a triband GSM handset with, frustratingly, EDGE rather than 3G. ... continued »

MY iTablet forum member modmesilly flagged up a couple of Google-phone related articles for us this weekend, which give a few hints as to the search company's intentions come the wireless spectrum auction in which chunks of radio frequency currently used for analogue TV will be freed up by the switch to digital. There's no doubting that Google has ... continued »

Ryan is very proud of the video he produced on how to clean the iPhone. Unfortunately, Apple clearly stated not to use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPhone. It has always been common sense (at least for me) to steer clear of any and all of the cleaning solutions mentioned ... continued »

The Google phone is no iPhone, but it is a product resulting from the collaboration of LG and Google. Dubbed LG KU-580, it features Google Search, Google Mail and Google Map.
Overall, the phone looks ok, nothing to get all hot-n-bothered over. It sports a red-on-black color scheme, with a 2-inch widescreen LCD and 3G-connectivity.
