Right, Marcel, the success of the iPhone is all about its applications. And the App Store. Google has launched its phone yesterday. Here are first reviews of apps, and: there will be no restrictions on a me-too app store. And no security checks as well…

    Well I’m done being pumped up by Google about this phone and it’s not even out yet…..Why you ask???

    Well in the fine print on its G1 site: “If your total data usage in any billing cycle is more than 1GB, your data throughput for the remainder of that cycle may be reduced to 50 kbps or less.” BUT IT GET WORSE!! They can even stop your plan for good..just because I got a cool new phone and want to be a power user!!

    Let me break it down: 50 kilobits per second is roughly 6 kilobytes per second — about the speed of the dialup modem

    One gigabyte is about how much it takes to download the equivalent of a few albums, a decent quality movie, and a decent quality TV episode — not much. Add to that whatever email, Web browsing, file downloading, app downloading, and whatever else you’ll be doing, and it wouldn’t be far-fetched for the power users that Google is courting to hit that 1 gigabyte cap — 34 MB a day — on a regular basis.

    In closing I just want to remind you AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint — offer a more liberal cap: 5 gigabytes

    Although heavily depending on my iPhone I never reached the 1GB so far. But it may happen in future. I thought T-Mobile is slowing down traffic even after 500 MB or less. Not sure.
