I have a mate who is soon to be expecting a new phone (for free on his contract). Now he has a choice between the T-Mobile G1 and a Blackberry Curve (new model I believe) - I've heard a lot of things about the G1, that's it a shoddy handset but the OS is great, full of features and more to come. I've heard nothing about the Curve but I expect it'll be quick and have the nessesary stuff - without some of the cooler features. This friend uses his phone to surf the net, instant message (msn), text and call people and he is constantly checking emails. Does anyone have experience/knowledge of either of these? Thanks.
