The HTC Dream G1 aka The Google Phone



When I first heard that Google was getting into the mobile smart phone operating system business, I was very excited. I respected the iPhone’s operating system and innovations but held off on getting one, satisfied with my Windows Mobile phone. But who knew the possibilities of innovation that Google would bring to the fold?

Fast forward to the past couple of months. HTC has released the Dream G1 Smartphone under T-Mobile with the first iteration of Google’s Android smart phone operating system. We’re starting to get our first reviews and hands-on impressions of the phone and of the operating system. So what’s the word?

Meh.

There are some quirks and omissions in the G1 that one would expect to be standard in a new smart phone suite, such as lack of Microsoft Exchange support, stereo Bluetooth, and video recording. The GPS functionality is also clunky and feels rushed. I am a little disappointed, but I’m telling myself to be patient. After all, the appeal of Android is in its potential as a powerful open-source computing platform where all kinds of apps can be written and smoothly run.
