The G1′s big weakness: the keyboard

I went along to the T-Mobile store today to take a look at the long-awaited G1, the first phone based on Google’s Android.

Count me amongst the unimpressed. The keyboard, which should be a strength, is horrible if you’re used to a Blackberry. Given that there’s no on-screen keyboard this is a total pain. So I’ll be sticking to the iPhone an Blackberry for now.

    I like the keyboard – though its awkward when you have some thing plugged into the usb port as it gets in the way of a comfortable grip. i think the overall device hardware is at best average. The OS is the awesome.
