Google’s Android Phone reviews

leave a comment »

There are a bunch of reviews out of the Google’s Android based, HTC Dream G1 phone which will be out on October 22. First is the review by Walter Mossberg of AllThingsD who has been playing with this phone for a while and has this to say:

G1 is a very good first effort, and a godsend for people who prefer physical keyboards or T-Mobile but want to be part of the new world of powerful pocket computers.

Another review is by Om Malik of GigaOm who has this to say about the phone:

This isn’t an iPhone competitor. If you look at it, you can very quickly see that the G-1 is a Honda to iPhone’s BMW. After a few days of usage I have become increasingly convinced that people who like the Apple iPhone will find Google-based G-1 aesthetically lacking.

Another review is by David Pogue of New York Times whose G1 report card sums it up very nicely:

software, A-. Phone, B-. Network, C.

While all three focused on all aspects of the phone, I liked the way David focused his argument around the three major parts that make the phone work, namely the software, the hardware and the network. Other bloggers have be so psyched by Google developing the phone software that they tend to oversee other aspects of the phone that makes the user experience great.
