Set your clocks to countdown, chalk those tallies onto the wall and start crossing off days on your calendar with a red marker pen because the G1 is a-comin’.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, chipsets and chipsettes; we have the dates, we have times and we have the tariffs too on the first phone to come with the Google Android platform, and the news is as follows…
I’m often unmoved by internet unboxings, very often in fact. But images of a Google Android T-Mobile G1 is something a little different both because we’re all as curious as children at the top of the stairs spying on their parents’ dinner parties and because I think I’m going to get one now that my contract’s run out and I’m bored of looking at everyone else’s iPhones.
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.
