    I would not get the G1 due to its ugly, heavy, and limited features. I see no EXACT written time tests either.

    1. give evidance
    2. it better be more then 5 seconds faster otherwise I am not impressed.


    In wifi, the iPhone is pretty instant in all the pages IMO.

    It's the first 3G phone for T-Mobile's 3G network. Gee, I wonder why it might be faster than AT&T's network with all of those iPhones and BlackBerries. :confused:

    i played with a G1 for the first time yesterday and was not impressed. Its just not a nice device to use. Yes i will admit that it is a first generation device but compared to the first time i held and used an iPhone, it just doesn't stack up. I was blown away by the iPhone and the G1 just falls short to me.

    There were videos showing the speed difference. However, that was over 3G and apparently the iPhone network wasn't so great. Over WiFi, they said...

    "Update: A previously published version of this article concluded that the G1's browser and processor were able to render pages faster than the iPhone's. In response to reader comments regarding a Wi-Fi test, we have now run a set of tests and concluded that, indeed, both phones load pages at a similar speed over Wi-Fi. This means there's little difference in processor or browser performance. "

    HAHA, nice. I'ts been ratted out.
    maybe T-mobiles network is better, doesnt mean the phone is. Also, pages load on an iPhone faster then any other phone like a razor that I have seen. I am pretty content.

    Good journalism at CNET UK.

    "The phone is faster!"

    Update: "Except that it's not!"

    So here are the tests they did. How does your iPhone 3G do?

    With 2 bars of 3G, mine loaded eHam.net in 11 seconds. Took them 23.16
    barackobama took about 50 seconds for mine, ... vs 1 min 38 seconds for them.
