Regardless to all of that, overriding that stuff would be a synch. "…Open-source Linux platform…" makes me think that they won`t be able to hold down the advertising for too long without someone figuring out how to disable them within three hours of their purchase. ;-)
Also, Google > Apple. I still won`t buy the phone because I don`t like pooty advertisements T_T
some links for you:FirefoxAdblock
Oh yeah that`s a great idea, dumb ass. Let`s not look like corporate tools and only be able to make calls when we have wifi or wired connection. As opposed to a cell phone that has coverage in tons of places, along with a G3 network to browse the internet.
catbarf: exactly, that was my point above
Anyway... This GPhone is a load of crap. Why don`t people just by laptops? They`re much better than cell phones becuz not only can they make calls and go on the internet (just like a phone), but they make you seem like less of a corporate tool.
Also laptops can have these newer applications called "computer games" that can played on computers that have much better graphics and game play than cell phone games. But then again, it won`t be long till they make a hard drive small enough to put into a phone so it`ll have so much gig that you can play some of your favorite video game titles such as "Prince of Persia" or whatever it is that you like to play.
It Will be cheaper, because Google is smarter than Apple.You`re right I didn`t see a keypad either, but that was also a badly done computer gen someone put out. It looked like the iphone becuase that`s "what was selling" at the time, not because that`s what sells.
So are you saying you have things on your computer that you didn`t "allow" on there? lol if you think phone security is tight obviously you haven`t used Vista (i actually don`t like so much security because unlike instagata0 over here I can control what is on and not on my computer)ads are not "downloaded to your phone" they`re on the Internet, that`s all they mean. There`s regular Internet and `mobile Internet`
cargasm: Use firefox, put yourself on the do not call list, and it`s ads on the web not the phone. Dumb ass
It`s mobIle!! Not moble!!! Grr...
Just because it`s nothing new doesn`t mean it won`t be successful. Using CDs for videogaming was a huge failure (Sega CD), but then picked up speed once people got used to the idea via PC games.
So let me get THIS straight, when they released the iPhone, it had nothing Nokia hadn`t done, with no new features, it`s more experimental, it`s MORE expensive.... where were your complaints then?
I know people who are about to launch their own home-made satellite soon.
I need to get a bigger wardrobe.
Your still in a whole bag of wrong, the video was talking about web ads, not spyware/malware. web ads you see all the time, you dont downlolad anything and you dont get asked your pemission on pc. The ads would be similar to what we see here on iambored, not pop ups. ADS are a great idea, free net on your phone most likely. O and iphone is reeealy poor quality i wouldnt pay more than 50quid for one.
to the people who said it`s going to be cheaper than the iphone - i dont think so. its going to be `cheaper` in the sense that they wont charge as much as if it didnt have the ads, but i think the price will be similar to that of the iphone.
liquidglass - did you see a keypad on the thing in the video? i didnt.the final product may not look like that, but the image in the vid had to come from somewhere, so i think that it will be made in the image of the iphone because thats what sells.
i called the phone experimental because it lets ads onto the phone without the consent of the user.the mobile industry has (so far) succeeded where the PC industry failed because EVERYTHING that goes on your phone, you have to approve. these ads are another story where what gets downloaded onto your phone does not need your permission. that gives way to a whole range of problems.
What the google phone would be able to do (if made/released) as opposed to the iphone: Is NOT suck.
adds are all over the internet. what that video said is that they want to make a phone similar to the iphone that can be sold cheaper because thru the software they made the adds that you see win you visit a website are ones aimed at mobile phone users. that way they make money from the adds rather then over charging for the phone.
i hardly notice them, im sure most people ignore then but its hard to find a website without at least one add.
anything thats not finished can be call experimental if they even called it that. i think they said it was in development. im not that worried about to that i would watch the video again to find out. what are they going to do? be like "its done now lets wait 4 years doing nothing for no reason befor we put it on the market" no its experimental because its not the finished product.
it didnt say anything definite about what it can out cant do in comparison to an iphone.
this thing is just an iphone with a computer virus... it`s just like having an internet connection with a lot of popups!
completely stupid. i hope it fails.
True, a lot of people have it on their "want lists," but it`s going to stay just there due to its high pricing.
Google might be onto something there if they release a phone that competes in features and interface accessibility while being made more affordable through some kind of advertising while surfing internet.
Either way, when companies compete, customers win. Still, I take this "news" with a grain of salt. I`d like to hear this from a more reputable source and one that doesn`t mix up android vs. MS mobile and "GPhone" vs iPhone.
