So having only recently acquired my G1 and having fallen fairly significantly for my iPod Touch, I now have about 16 months to think about what phone I’ll have next. Had I not already bought my touch I’d probably have gone for an iPhone, but havnig had my G1 for a while I’m torn.
The iPod touch is very pretty, very functional and has some great apps available for it. even though i’ve jailbroken it there is always the fear that an Apple update will break it or that something will stop working. There have been several prominent examples of tech-minded people abandoning their iPhones in favour of Android based devices. I have some sympathy with this.
I know that the g1 is not the most beloved piece of hardware on the planet but I’m really enjoying it. A large part of that is down to the improvements brought to me by the Cyanogen mod and the huge performance benefits which it brings. There have been rumours that the G1 might not have enough built in memory to handle future Android updates so I’m glad to have the rooted handset to see me through. Android has a long way to go but it is only now starting to come out if its shell and have proper applications built for it. The only way appears to be up.
I suppose it’s pointless to speculate which handset I’ll have. The market has changed significantly in the last 18 months – I’m quite excited to see what happens next.
