The G1 vs. the iPhone

How the two 3G smartphones stack up against each other

Google, T-Mobile and friends vs. Apple While the wireless market has been inundated with iPhone-like smartphones over the past year, T-Mobile's latest smartphone has generated a significant amount of buzz because it will be the first to use Google's open-source Android mobile platform as its operating system. As Google has conceived it, Android is supposed to help break down the so-called "walled garden" on the mobile Web by letting developers create open-source third-party applications, and by giving users the option of switching networks while keeping their devices. In this slideshow, we'll evaluate both the iPhone and the new G1 in terms of cost, network quality, enterprise features and more.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
