Google’s G1 Phone

Well, well….iPhone actually has a little bit of competition. The G1 Phone was announced today.

Created by Google, this phone is tied to T-Mobile service and has a host of super features that include an actual keyboard, and it comes loaded with Google Maps–which operates in what is called “Compass” mode. This essentially means that you can see a street in all directions, depending on which way you point the phone. G-mail is also built in. The cost is lower than iPhone at $179.

Overall it isn’t as sleek or sexy as iPhone, but it does have some cool features. If you want to check out some of the specs and read some reviews, go here and here. You’ll find more info on these 2 sites than on the T-Mobile site, and you can see for yourself if you like it or not.

Personally, unless I find some feature I just can’t live without on the G1, I’m still going to go iPhone…
