G1,iPhone, Tube, Omnia, and Apple Updates
A lot of cool things developing today in the cellular world. Just thought I would mention a few of them.
Let’s start with a great and comprehensive article on Techradar.com that compares the iPhone, G1, and Tube. It really puts all aspects of these three handsets to the test. You can read it here, but for all you lazy people who just want to know the conclusion, it was a tie between the iPhone and G1.
He sums it all up by saying:
“Well, which one do we like the most? The iPhone is complete in most areas, the Nokia Tube has some nice touches and decent features, especially in the media and camera section, yet the G1’s Android interface is super-smashing-great.
It’s surprising, but it’s a tie between the G1 and the iPhone at three wins each, and that’s with the G1 not even being nearly at full potential just yet.
The Nokia Tube is good in most areas, but doesn’t quite cut the mustard, especially when it comes to the S60 interface.
So well done to the iPhone and the G1… if you get either of these in your stocking, you should feel pretty smug with yourself”.
Another piece of exciting news is that Cnet has a full review of one of my favorites, the Omnia, you can read it here. There conclusion is, to sum it up in my own words, they did not love it! Oh well.
The last piece of exciting news is that HTC now offers a full emulator of how the G1 is going to look and perform. You can access it here, but don’t forget to press the Emulator option and not just the 3D image of the G1.
That’s all folks! Nothing else to report now, besides of course that I spent some time in the new Israel Apple store and had a great afternoon looking at things I will probably never be able to afford. It just seemed more fun then spending the afternoon in the flea market!
Just to end off on a positive note, check out this hands-on video of the Nokia Tube…
