Verizon: You don’t want that crappy G1!

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:07PM EST

Verizon knows best, right? First, they really didn’t think the iPhone 3G was good enough for you. You know, they said the signal wasn’t great, it was too expensive, and the iPhone insulted your mother behind your back. Well, apparently they’ve whipped a list of reasons why you don’t want a G1, either. By the looks of things, it looks like a total list of deal breakers! It doesn’t have stereo Bluetooth, no video capture, no audible GPS… if the device is missing all of those amazing and absolutely desirable features, then count us out! Right guys? If the list of “misses” weren’t good enough to convince you, just wait – there’s more!

Well, there is a touch screen and physical QWERTY keyboard and apparently opening the device to use the keyboard is just too cumbersome. We guess the Voyager, enV, enV(2), Glyde, XV6800, and other Verizon offerings are just so much easier. Also, you can only download songs via Wi-Fi and there are limitations to 3G downloads for music and such. Verizon lets you download all the songs you want over their network because, oh yeah, they don’t have a selection of Wi-Fi devices. But it’s not that important, right? Verizon also says that there is no MS Exchange sync, so don’t wait for the G1 even though the Exchange programs are in the works and ready to be released soon. You’re compulsive! Oh, and look, the Android OS is bad because it’s open source… Well, there you have it, guys. You should not buy the G1 because Verizon tells you so and we all know better than to ignore the big boys in red.
