Google: Open. Apple: Closed. Right?

On September 25, 2008, in General, by Neil Stevens


Though the G1 is looking pretty darn open compared to the iPhone, it does have some issues that might drive away potential customers. For instance, it is SIM-locked to its carrier and can’t be used as a tethered modem with a laptop, both common criticisms of the iPhone as well. The phone doesn’t sync with a computer, instead relying solely on Google’s mobile web-based applications, and has no Exchange support for enterprise customers…. And, the hardware doesn’t include a standard headphone jack, instead requiring an adapter for HTC’s proprietary connector.

Oh, but Google isn’t ‘evil’ and Apple is. Google even says they aren’t, so it must be true. You can even look it up on Google.
