On Monday I got the e-mail informing me I could be one of the lucky few to get a G1 first. I went to the website had a good look at the phone and just couldn't seem to convince myself to buy it (which is saying something for me with a new phone!).
It just seems sub standard somehow and the reviews are pretty mixed, I am particulary concerned with reports on the battery life.
I really wanted to want it as well. I certainly wouldn't entertain the £40, 18 month contract anyway, they should have given more options. I loved the idea of open source and use linux almost 100% of the time on my PC but I don't get the feeling this is ready yet.
The fact that the Touch HD launch was scheduled just a few days after doesn't help either, now thats what the G1 should have been, I think I will be getting one of those as my foray back into PDA market instead.
So I went to the Doctors yesterday. He said, "What appears to be the problem?". I said, "I keep having this dream, night after night, beautiful girls keep rushing towards me and I keep pushing them away." He said, "How can I help?" I said: "Break my arms."
