a year ago, i did an illustration for slate of iphone vs. curve in a fight to the death. with the launch of the new google cellphone platform android (or google phone, or g1, or whatever you feel like calling it), slate ran a new article about this cell on cell, no holds barred, cage-match mobile phone battle. happily, this illustration felt like a continuation of the previous skirmish, but whereas the first was a street fight, this one turned into more of mma brawl. in the interest of full nerd-fanboy-disclosure, i am partisan towards the iphone.
