We all know the iPhone applications ,how it work or not. We know there is an app for just about every possible task on the planet. But an Android phone? You don't really know an Android phone until you have worked with one. That 's why when you will find how far you can push your mobile experience.

1. The G1's Not a Real Media Player ... Yet
The iPhone doesn't just play back video—it's one of the best (and best-looking) portable media players on the market. While we'll certainly see developers making video playback programs for the G1, there are none built into it. But Apple beware: If there's one thing the open-source development community loves, it is support for a wide range of video formats and codecs. All it will take is one robust mobile playback program (mobile VLC, perchance?) to make users remember just how much they hate converting videos into MP4 so they'll play on an iPhone.

2. The iPhone is Thinner
The G1's slide-out keyboard may be useful, but it comes at a price: The G1 takes us back to the pocket-bulging smartphones of yesteryear, while the iPhone is svelte enough to fit in the front pocket of your Levis.

3. No Multitouch
The G1 uses a capacitive touchscreen. This is the same highly sensitive type of screen found on the iPhone (most touchscreen phones use mostly inferior resistive touchscreens), and should allow the G1 to compete when it comes to touch sensitivity. But the G1 does not have the iPhone's multitouch capability. While the G1 attempts to make up for it by utilizing "long-touches" to bring up deep menus, it loses out on the huge amount of functionality (and coolness) that comes from the iPhone's ability to sense two fingers at once.

4. Terrible Headphone Jack
The iPhone proved that people were willing to listen to music on their cellphones. Still, most manufacturers are reluctant to put a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on their phones, forcing customers instead to use bulky adaptors or subpar bundled headphones. The 3G iPhone bucked that trend (the original had an annoying recessed headphone jack that could only take specially made headphones), but the G1 relies on an irritating proprietary plug. To make things work, early indications are that adaptors won't even be available when the phone first hits shelves, making the bundled headphones the only choice.

5. Internal Memory
The iPhone currently comes in 8 GB and 16 GB varieties, and we'll likely see a 32 GB version before long. The G1 has just 192 MB of onboard memory, and comes with a 1 GB micro-SD card. That's not really enough memory for a phone that's supposed to be full of music and downloaded applications. If you want an 8 GB G1, you'll have to purchase an 8 GB micro-SD card, which will push the price of the phone from $179 above the iPhone's $199 price tag. If T-Mobile, Google and HTC really expect us to use the G1 as a mobile computer, they'll need to give us more memory.

What is an app? in a cell phone?


it is a program application that you can download . An iphone app runs on a Apple smart phone and comes from apple and if the phone is not an apple phone then it is most likely running an android operating system. It has to be a smart phone to run an application. Tablets can run applications if connected to the internet. Ipad is apple so you can run apple applications on it.

Can I install android under iphone 3GS with new iboot ?


Don't listen to most of people who answer questions like yours. If you call apple and start talking about iboot or any other jailbroken iphone stuff they're just gonna laugh at you. From what I've heard is that android only works on edge iphones. I dont really know if that means that it only applies to the 2g silver backed iphones or not but I know my 3gs is able to use edge. I've not seen android make a cellular call either while on the iphone however skype seemed to work. I would try it if I were you though. The modified android download can be found floating somewhere out there on the web. Also as far as I know at this time its in beta. Not all features are supported.
