Despite its various omissions and disappointing video recorder, Android 1.5 is a must-have update for G1 owners. Android Market is a sharp, easy-to-use third-party app store with about 5,000 apps at the time of this writing ... and the overall OS platform is as stable and responsive as ever. If you can get past the dowdy hardware, the T-Mobile G1 running Android 1.5 remains one of the most powerful smartphones available today. It'll be interesting to see what new hardware can do with Android 1.5. quote

Users of the G1 will be very happy to have an alternative to having to use the hardware keyboard and finally being able to navigate the G1, to a certain degree, with one hand.
