Googley phones  
I'm seriously considering the Google Phone to replace my iphone.

kind of getting tired of Apple's limitations (no bluetooth obex, no background apps, no decent camera or movie camera app (without paying $$)).

I'm not really happy living within a walled garden, even if it's Apple's well kempt garden.

Anyway, my friends who have just gotten G1s are loving theirs. And that bitch has a real keyboard.

I resisted the temptation to pick one up on the way to work. I may have to pick one up and try it for the 14-days.

Anyone go from one to the other have any thoughts?

Apple is notorious for limiting all their hardware. When you purchase apple products, a lot of that money is really paying for the design.

But if the Googley phones work better... by all means :)

All I know is I recently heard a very techno savvy queen say he was underwhelmed with the iPhone -- would rather have a really good phone & really good camera than half-assed of each in 1 package.

My boyfriend has it and LOVES IT.

He also had the iphone that he gave to me and I just got rid of.

I've talked to several friends who have one and love it. Seems to be a fav amongst geeks too :) If you have 14 days, won't hurt to try one out.
