Two touchscreen heavyweights are lining up to go to war soon. Both of them are billed as the best of the best, and both are unique mobile phones in their own way. So let’s take a look at which will win: T-Mobile G1 or Blackberry Storm.
T-Mobile G1 – the world’s first Google Android mobile phone
Announced at the start of October, the T-Mobile G1 marks the coming of a brand new operating system: Google Android. No other mobile phones have ever used that system before, so it’s fair to say it’s generating quite a lot of interest. Mind you, that’s hardly surprising, since the T-Mobile G1 is a full touchscreen mobile phone, that quite blatantly seems to be out to steal the iPhone’s thunder. And you know what? It succeeds, and makes for a far more appealing mobile phone! The new Android interface in the T-mobile G1 is slick, sexy and fast, making it an absolute joy to use, and with extra features like 3 megapixel camera, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, super fast internet access up to 7.2Mbps, and built-in GPS, the T-Mobile G1 really is an enticing prospect for anyone who loves touchscreen mobile phones.
Blackberry Storm – all new power at your fingertips
Meanwhile, from developer RIM, we have another touchscreen mobile phone, and while the T-Mobile G1 may have a new operating system to boast about, the new Blackberry Storm has an entirely new type of touchscreen. Basically, when you press down on the screen in the Blackberry Storm, it moves ever so slightly, and clicks. The effect is unbelievable; put simply, typing out an email on the Blackberry Storm’s virtual onscreen keyboard, feels just like you’re using a physical keypad with real buttons! how many other mobile phones can you say that about?! In terms of extra features, the Black Storm is no slouch, either, with its camera, internet and GPS specs pretty similar to those on the T-Mobile G1.
But which is the mobile phone you should buy? When you get right down to it, which one is better?
T-Mobile G1 vs Blackberry Storm – which should YOU buy?
Whilst the similarities between the T-Mobile G1 and the Blackberry Storm are there, these two mobile phones are nothing like each other. Each has different software features and so on, but it’ll come down to a case of which one feels the nicest to use. However, we need to address the fact that the T-Mobile G1 gives you access to loads of applications and music via their online Marketplace, and the Amazon MP3 Store. So, in terms of content, the T-Mobile G1 would seem to be the better bet. However… if you’re talking about which of these mobile phones is the nicest to use, and looks the best, and which one you’ll enjoy using more, then there can only be one clear winner. The Blackberry Storm is, quite frankly, one of the single nicest mobile phones ever made. The T-Mobile G1 may let you fill it with software and music, but you can still get software for the Blackberry Storm, and it’s physically a far, FAR nicer mobile phone. Without a doubt, that’s the baby I’d go for!
