This article focuses on the emerging rivalry between Google and Apple over their mobile operating systems. The G1 phone, built by HTC, features a Google-owned operating system and brand. Analyst Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray thinks that the G1 will have little or no impact on near-term iPhone sales. It is expected that the G1 will go on sale on October 22, 2008 for $179 with a two-year service contract. In contrast to Apple's strategy, the Android operating system of Google can be offered up for use on many devices.
