Courtesy of The Telegraph First Look At The G1 As you can see, this may be the SECOND best touch screen phone... Sure there's an open platform, but there wont be nearly as many as developers for the G1, at least until android is released on more phones... and i dont think the developer community will be nearly as large as the iPhones since so many people have iPod touches as well. also obviously no unlock yet, however there probably will be. no video support, only comes with a 1gb memory card, and NO HEADPHONE JACK, you need an adapter for the usb port. The touchscreen is obviously not as responsive as the iphones, which i personally hate, other people may like that though... you can see in the cnet video when he tries to touch the picture options he has trouble at first. T-mobile doesnt have very good 3g coverage yet, and at least here in the US they arent a huge carrier... So i dont think that the G1 is an iPhone killer, not by a long shot. But android OS has the potential to be a good competitor with the iPhone.
