Earlier this week T-Mobile announced the national retail availability of Google’s myTouch 3G. After anticipating the device for quite some time, our very own Mike McDonald immediately went out and purchased one. So, how does it compare to Apple’s iPhone 3GS?
Mike teamed up with Taylor Pile, who is also of WebProNews and who just happens to be a new iPhone user, and the two conducted a brief comparative analysis of the devices. The phones have many similar features such as the 3.2 megapixel camera, browser view, touch screen, and more. There are however, significant differences as well.
For example, Mike and Taylor downloaded an identical application on each of their phones using WiFi. The iPhone downloaded it in 1 minute and 9 seconds, while the myTouch download completed in 17 seconds. When downloading an app on the network, the iPhone completed in 26 seconds, while the myTouch took 1 minute and 8 seconds to finish. We should note that the iPhone was on a 3G AT&T network and the myTouch was running on a 2G T-Mobile network.
In spite of the comparison, Mike is still sold on his myTouch and Taylor still favors his iPhone. How do you think the phones compare? http://videos.webpronews.com/2009/08/07/which-is-better-apple-iphone-3gs-or-google-mytouch/
