Google and T-Mobile Make G1 Official

It's official, Google and T-Mobile have launched the G1 smartphone running Android. The phone looks very much like the T-Mobile Sidekick to me. The G1 features a touchscreen that slides to reveal a real QWERTY keyboard. The photo application allows users to frame a shot and drop it on the devices home page.

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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. 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.
