The G1 vs. the iPhone

How the two 3G smartphones stack up against each other

Applications With the opening of its AppStore this summer, Apple for the first time opened up its iPhone to third-party applications. But while this new feature certainly gave users a wide selection of applications to choose from for their phones, Apple still retains control over which applications it will allow to be sold on its store. Google, meanwhile, will launch its own Android App Market on Oct. 22 and also have its share of fun applications that can be downloaded onto the G1 phone. While it's unclear what, if any, vetting mechanism Google is using for its Android store, third-party developers can always make their own Android applications and sell them on their own.
