G1 — Dona’s first impressions

I played with a G1 today a the T-Mobile store at White Flint Mall. I have to say — it felt flimsy. The keyboard seemed harder to use than my Sidekick 2 and the whole device just felt too light. I expected it to feel more solid — but perhaps that’s because my Sidekick 2 is very solid — brick-like in fact.

So, I was disappointed. I don’t think I’ll be shelling out the $180 for the G1 anytime soon. Maybe I’ll just get the Sidekick LX or else wait until a Sidekick with a touchscreen shows up. My Sidekick 2 is still working just fine.

(Does that sound as much like sour grapes to read as it did to type?)
