Think of the G1 as the Zune of iPhones …

Color Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster unimpressed by T-mobile’s G1, the first mobile phone to use Google’s (GOOG) Android mobile operating system. Though the device is certain to be a viable competitor in the current mobile market, it’s no iPhone. Apple (AAPL), says Munster, has nothing to worry about. The G1 will have “little or no impact” on near-term iPhone sales. “To use a baseball analogy, when Apple comes out with a product, they try to hit home runs, but Google’s Android strategy is swinging for base hits,” Munster wrote in a research note to clients Tuesday. “Today’s announcement in itself does not change anything; however, if over the next two years Google has many similar small announcements, it will become a greater threat to the iPhone. … While the G1 is a legitimate competitor with the iPhone, we believe it will have little or no impact on near-term iPhone sales.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
