T-Mobile announces Android Market applications available at launch

Mobile phones, Software

android-market.pngOne of the features of T-Mobile’s Android-powered G1 device will be “Android Market” – a place where you can download third-party applications for the device, much like the iTunes App Store.

T-Mobile has just released a list of the applications that’ll be available at launch, and we’ve got hold of it. Everything from guitar tuition, through language translation, to ringtone creation is available as an application.

There’s a full list after the jump, but some particular highlights for me include a Wikipedia application, allowing me to cheat at pub quizzes, Shazam, for when I can’t work out what that god-damn song is, and a carbon-footprint tracker, because I’m actually quite good with my emissions, so I can feel smug.

Here’s the list of applications available free on Android Market from 30 October. The amount of apps available will obviously increase over the coming weeks.
