The music player built into the phone links to Amazon. The device uses Chrome Lite for surfing the web and is 3G enabled. The worst news is that the phone will be SIM locked to T-Mobile, this will rule it out in many parts of the country. T-Mobile coverage in my area is shameful.
The G1 has instant downloads of applications and games like Pac Man, looks very App Store. Possibly the best news is the price, the G1 will retail for only $179. In addition to 3G, it will also feature integrated Wi-Fi. The phone is set to launch on October 22nd. Plans for the phone will be $25 with unlimited data and some messaging or $35 with unlimited data and messaging. The phone will launch in Europe in 2009.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
