The Android platform has come of age in the Hero. HTC's Sense interface is superbly implemented, the device itself is intuitive to use, and the software is largely well thought-out. We'd have liked more internal memory, longer battery life and a better camera though.
I wrote up a comprehensive review of the T-Mobile G1 back in October and use the device a few times a month to see what is new and interesting in the Android space. I LOVE the notifications on the Android platform and this feature alone is almost compelling enough for me to suffer through the poor battery life and miserable memory management issues. I think the current hardware is targeted more at the mobile phone geek rather than the end consumer, but was pleased to read that three new HTC Android devices will arrive in 2009.
I was reading through my feeds and stumbled upon the Mobile Tech Review post on Gameloft games coming to Android devices. According to the press release, 20 games will be available from them on the Android Market. While this is great news for the T-Mobile G1 and future Android devices, until Google or the manufacturers (currently only HTC) fix the problem with only installing applications on internal memory you won't be able to actually load up many of these games without getting constant low memory warnings. I see this error/notification every single day now with just over 50 applications loaded on my G1. Maybe I should try to uninstall some of these applications.
As I pointed out in a recent post regarding the current firmware on the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device there is a major issue with not being able to store applications or content onto the external microSD card. I get low memory errors daily and if I browse a lot with the device my browser cache fills up to 10MB+. Then when I delete the data I lose all my history, bookmarks, etc. and this really limits my usage of the G1. Opera thankfully announced today that its Opera Mini 4.2 product for the Android platform is out of beta already and available as a full release in the Android Market.
There have been lots of rumors and screenshots on the forthcoming "Cupcake" update for the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device that may start rolling out as soon as next week. While most of the talk is about an on-screen keyboard, I think there is an even bigger issue that must be included soon or else my G1 will keep being used more as a hobby phone than anything else. The on-screen keyboard makes sense for follow-up Google Android products, but makes no sense to me for the current G1 hardware where the keyboard is perfectly fine and one of the real strengths of the device.
