Can Google’s G1 Smart Phone Be More Than an Apple Knockoff?

My friend Guy Tucker sent me part of an article about the new Gogle phone.
“Google sees mobile devices as being far more ubiquitous than computers, and the more consumers it can get to go online via their phones, the better, arguably, for companies who make money via online advertising. (Google CEO Eric Schmidt is so bullish on this he called mobile “the re-creation of the internet.”)”
G1 versus iPhone

  1. i was just reading about this phone this morning.  apparently there is some “fine print” regarding the internet usage.  this is a quote from the article:Here’s a great example of why you should always be sure to read the fine print. On the product page for the highly-anticipated new T-Mobile/Google phone, you will see (if you squint) this note at the bottom: “If your total data usage in any billing cycle is more than 1GB, your data throughput for the remainder of that cycle may be reduced to 50 kbps or less.”So much for the “unlimited” access plan. Sure, you can still surf the web, download music, or watch YouTube videos as much as you want… but if you do it too much, they’ll cripple your phone so that for the rest of the month you have to do it really slowly.     link to the whole article:
