G1 vs. X1
Looks like the Sony Xperia X1 will be facing tough competition. Even before its release, the smartphone market already has the iPhone, HTC Diamond, HTC Touch Pro, and Samsung Omnia. Now, it looks like another competition has step up on the plate, the Google G1 Phone.
Like the Xperia X1, the Google G1 Phone also has touch screen and a physical keyboard, plus, both device are made by the Taiwanese Manufacturer, HTC. Let’s just hope that some of the issues that HTC devices are plagued with when it comes to Windows Mobile interface won’t be a problem with the X1 or it would be harder for SE to penetrate the smartphone market.
The Google G1 Phone runs on the Android OS so users will have the added benefit of getting help from dedicated Android forums though the X1 also has a dedicated forum since it is made by HTC over at xda-developers.com.
The Google G1 looks like a capable enough phone but I don’t think it will deter me from waiting for the X1.
