    Almost all of the Android phones that will be marketed in the future are still gonna be expensive! If only some company would create a cheap yet feature-full one, I’d buy from that company just to try out Android.

  9. Miguel says:

    Android phones are expensive because the OS has high CPU and memory requirements, just like Windows Mobile and iPhone OS.

    To those who are already using their G1s: i just bought my own G1
    phone from the US 3 wks ago and it’s been sitting in my drawer
    since. i can’t use it :( i had it unlocked already, but it can’t
    get access to the internet and would always say i have a problem
    with my sim (i’m using SMART). i can’t figure out the APN settings.
    i think i need to set it manually but i don’t know how. if anybody
    knows how i can activate and finally use my G1 phone, pls be an
    angel and email me at [email protected]..i will very much appreciate
    it. thanks:)
