T-Mobile's G1 Android Phone Is Here!

T-Mobile's G1 Android Phone Is Here!

Google, HTC, and T-Mobile announced the world's first Android-powered device this morning in NYC — the T-Mobile G1! One of the most talked about handsets of the year, the G1 can now be preordered by T-Mobile customers from the T-Mobile G1 website and starting Oct. 22, the device will be available at select T-Mobile retail stores for $179 with a two-year voice and data plan. By November the G1 will be making its way to the United Kingdom, and the rest of Europe by the start of 2009. Here's a rundown of the specs:

  • The G1 looks similar to the iPhone, but the touchscreen can swivel out to show off the full QWERTY keyboard.
  • WiFi, 3D graphics acceleration, a 3-megapixel camera.
  • 3G with dual-band UMTS.
  • Full HTML browser and email support (Gmail as push and POP3 and IMAP email services).
  • GPS functionality.
  • Access to the Android market for new apps and Amazon MP3 for music purchases.
  • You can read Word, Excel, and other Office documents, but it doesn't offer Microsoft Exchange support.
  • The G1 comes with a trackball for one-handed navigation.
  • You can access Google Maps (including Street View), and use YouTube.
