360 degrees street view? no way! but T-MOBILE explains it all, yet Apple's iPhone has to match that feature from the latest 3g phone of T-MOBILE, the G1, the first Google Phone.

The rumors circulated, the news was deemed imminent, and now it’s official. Tuesday morning, Google (GOOG), together with T-Mobile and HTC (HTC), officially revealed the hyped “Dream” phone, the first mobile phone to be built around Google’s Open Handset Alliance Android operating system.Bloggers, press and even Google’s founding team of Sergey and Larry were on hand for the Manhattan launch event. Rebranded from the Dream to the G1, an obvious nod to Google, the phone will be available on October 22nd at T-Mobile stores in twenty one cities. It will sell for $179 (with a two year contract), plus a $25 or $35 monthly data plan subscription.

But curiously, we try to unhide the matchup between the iPhone and G1, here are the following lineups:
  • Footprint - the G1 comes in a case that measures 4.6in X 2.16in x.62. That’s slightly longer and narrower than the current iPhone. The G1, with its slide out keyboard, is also thicker. The iPhone measures 4.5in x 2.4in x .48in thick.
  • Screens - the G1 screen is a 3.2in TFT enabled touch-screen. The iPhone features a 3.5in screen of comparable resolution with multi-touch touch navigation controls. (Multi-touch, as the name implies, means it can handle multiple touches at the same time.)
  • Keyboard – the iPhone is purely touch controlled when it comes to entering text. The HTC G1 has a slide out, complete QWERTY keyboard. The G1 also features a trackball control.
  • Camera - the G1 features a 3.2 megapixel color camera with fixed focus. The iPhone offers a 2.0 megapixel camera.
  • Battery – the G1 uses a 1150mAh lithium battery. Talk time is pegged at up to 350 minutes via WCDMA or up to 406 via GSM. Standby time is listed at up to 402 hours [WCDMA] or 319 hours [GSM]. The iPhone offers talk time of 5 hrs via 3G [GSM] or up to 10 hours via 2G networks. Standby time is listed at up to 300 hours.
  • GPS – Both phones offer GPS and mapping tools.
  • Connectivity - both phones support Quad Band GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz), Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) and Bluetooth 2.0 with Enhanced Data Rate [EDR]. The iPhone handles UMTS/HSDPA at 850, 1900, 2100 MHz. HTC lists G1 HSDPA/WCDMA support at 2100Mhz (Europe) and 1700/2100 [US].
  • Memory – the iPhone is offered with 8GB and 16GB flash hard drive storage. The G1 is to be sold with 256MB of ROM and 192MB of RAM. An SD Card expansion slot is available for expansion with a 1GB card preloaded.
  • Colors – the iPhone is available in black and white. The G1 will be sold in black, white or brown.
So, we really don't know which is nearer than the peek, is it the G1 or iPhone? each has a unique feature, even tech-specialist cannot decide which is groover.
