T-Mobile officially announced the first Android powered mobile phone yesterday called the G1. The smartphone uses the new Google Android OS and features a QWERTY keyboard. The phone promises a great web surfing experience with access to Google Maps Street View, Gmail, YouTube, and more.

Internet access is via T-Mobile's 3G and EDGE networks. The G1 will go on sale on October 22nd for $179 with a 2-year customer agreement. UK Android fans will be able to get the phone in November with the rest of Europe getting the handset in 2009.

Cole Brodman, chief technology and innovation officer, T-Mobile USA, said, “The Internet and the mobile phone are both indispensable tools for our hectic lives, but only a fraction of us access the Web on our phones. The T-Mobile G1 is our opportunity in the U.S. to accelerate the mass adoption of the mobile Web, by unleashing Google innovation with a unique software experience that mobilizes the Google services hundreds of millions of consumers rely on every day.”
