Now I’ve had an iPhone for over a year now and it’s a truly great phone. It’s still lacking some killer features out of the box MMS, Voice Recorder, forward SMS. More importantly I’ve recently been playing playing with the iPhone SDK and I’ve found it pretty unintuitive, it also doesn’t help that I’m not enjoying using Objective-C as a language. urgh.
At the same time I’ve also been playing with the Android SDK in eclipse and ever since I first used the emulator to play with the actual Android Operating System, I’ve been in love with it. Especially since I’ve found the Android SDK extremely easy to pick up and learn, even with no prior knowledge of Java, it’s extremely well documented. After about three days of “should I’ and “shouldn’t I” running through my head, I went out and bought the T-Mobile G1. All I can say is wow! I was originally skeptical about the phones design and the slide out screen to reveal the keyboard, I take it all back, this phone is a dream to use. I’m really looking forward to developing some new applications and hopefully some games for it!
Here’s some shots, apologies about the terrible lighting.
