T-Mobile announces Android Market applications available at launch
One 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…
GALLERY: Alternative Android User Interfaces
The UI on T-Mobile’s G1 was designed by a Swedish company called The Astonishing Tribe, which is a great name. Better than “Symantec” or “McAfee”, or “Microsoft”, anyway. They’ve just released a bunch of UI also-rans, so you can see what could have been. They range from the functional, to the wacky, to the cute, to the very attractive. Click the very “functional” one below to start the gallery.

Shiny Preview: T-Mobile G1 first look
We got a first look at the G1, having prised it from the hands of every other UK tech journalist (seriously – I've got bruises). The phone comes into its own when you personalise it with your own apps, but this is a good chance to see the UI and what HTC have come up with.
Olympus gets in on the Micro Four Thirds scene with its compact SLR concept
Things are ALL GO on the hot Micro Four Thirds SLR scene right now. Panasonic revealed its Lumix G1 just last week, shrinking the traditional SLR into a very fancy-looking body.
Olympus, Panasonic’s partner in the new system, has different plans. It’s using the shrunken optical internals to create a compact-styled camera that boasts the power and lens connectivity of an SLR. And a lovely little orange faux-leather band. To be honest, we’re only mentioning this because of the leather band.
The unnamed Olympus device is, sadly, just at concept stage at the moment, so there’s a very real risk that that leather detailing will be replaced with a cheaper plastic…
Big-screened HTC "G1" could be first Android phone, exclusively on T-Mobile in the US
Building on speculation a couple of weeks ago, it seems that an Android mobile phone could be on sale in the States as soon as October, if rumours based on people with inside knowledge of Google and HTC are to be believed.
In a flurry of naming creativity, HTC is expected to launch its G1 mobile phone, sporting a decent five-by-three inch touchscreen, real slide-out QWERTY keyboard, three megapixel camera, 3G, and of course the Android operating system…
