No surprise there. If there's no marketing then people won't know about it unless they are techy and kept an eye on the G1's progress. The phone doesn't look great but the software is amazing. After using the iPhone, Android is so much better.

I can agree the IPhone can't scan any barcode and tell you where you can get it for the cheapeset price and the IPhone cant call the closest taxi cab for you when you are wasted and the Iphone cant display the actual street view as if you were really there doing a 360 not a Iphone hater because I have one but this G1 phone has some sick apps and features so if you ask me which one I will keep or if you have something rude to say about my opinion you are a true a idiot

They sent out tons of promo material, posters, a banner, cardboard cutouts for the store and the sidewalk, lots of in-store displays. Out of the 24 we got, we sold 6 via upgrades and 2 for new lines from Verizon customers and 1 for a new line from a Sprint customer. It's the lack of TV and web ads, probably. The customer who came over from Sprint was a little worried about the young 3G network here in Houston.

Live Search is the only feature I would like to carry over to an Android device but I doubt that will happen. Sprint will be launching an Android phone at some point. The question is when and what. BGR reported that they will release it before Christmas but I don't see that happening but would love for Sprint to prove me wrong.

The G1 is Amazing, Most of these people talking Smack about it havent even seen, Held, or given it a decent amount of time. Thats alright, just go along with the Rest of the Flock Lemmings, Just as I expected from such a Tumbling Civilization.

same here good os but horrible network. tmobile sucks i switched from at&t and there horrible network which is overloaded to tmobile which just sucks. im so glad i opened up a sprint account last week and got the diamond. i was scared to even com e to sprint but they rock rev a is amazing. i will be returning my diamond for the pro. verizon is to expensive and they lock down phones so they were not even considered. so far with my 1 week diamond its been exellent sprint is good. tmobile g1 and os is excellent but once again a great phone on a horrid network.

Working in a corp store I fiddled with one most of the day, it's a nice phone, but by looks the plastic does make it look a bit cheap and the"chin" at the bottom can interfere with typing with your right hand. There's work to be done in the software.

Where do you live? at&t's network is great in most areas,unless you live in Cali or close to there. I live in Ohio and travel to surrounding states,and my service with at&t is near perfect. The 3G coverage kinda sucks out here,but I can wait.

keep in mind verizon and att prices are the same... you have roll over with att but if you drop down your plan you extend you contract and with big red it only extends when you buy equipment with a discount... sprints service gets spotty across the country but tmobile does the same.... tmobile and sprint are both cheaper but there are less people you can call for free(ie customer base) but then again its really what fits you needs.. i sell verizon phones and i have that discussion all the time with customers.... if you dont travel much and it fits your budget and needs then great..

An unlocked USA 3G touch pro running the android OS would be ace. I'm hoping HTC is looking into this. G1 isn't bad tho. Ive had it for 3 days now and i'm very impressed. Its frozen 3 times so far and i just had to wait a few seconds to let it catch up. Only had 1 connection problem with maps earlier today. Other than that the phone itself with the android OS system has wowed people ive shown it to.
