T-Mobile G1 Android Phone is I4U Gift Guide Tip #92
 
 

The first Google Android smartphone, the T-Mobile G1 completes our Top 10 Mobile Phone Gift Guide 2008. I have hesitated a bit to recommend the HTC G1 as a gift as Android is rather early stage and you could call the G1 a project. On the other hand it is one of the few things you can get in on at the ground level. It is new and promising as the Adobe Flash Player 10 running on Android showed impressively today.
The T-Mobile G1 is a great gift for early adopters, open source fans and Google fans.
Features of the T-Mobile G1 include touchscreen, slide-out QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, 3MP camera, music player, Bluetooth, Google Cloud integration and Android Market.

The G1 is only available on the T-Mobile network. If you sign a contract you get the T-Mobile G1 for $179.99 right now.

For Whom:
Ideal for early adopters, Open Source freaks and Google fans.

The Good:
Touchscreen and QWERTY Keyboard
Google Integration
Open Source Karma
3MP Camera


The Bad:
UI not as well rounded as the iPhone
New OS, will evolve going forward quite a bit
Design is a bit boring compared to the iPhone or BlackBerry Storm

Where to Buy:
The T-Mobile G1 Android phone is selling on T-Mobile for $179.99 for new customers when signing a contract. See also these BlackBerry Storm accessories.

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.
