    Woah, so this thing is really the hardware of a 6700/Wizard??? Is the final release going to have newer hardware?
    Also, does it work with AT&T 3G? And how much is it unlocked? Or is that info even available yet?
    Like pretty much everyone who is into PDA phones, I am curious about the Andrioid OS, and the G1/Dream phone. But if it’s using the same hardware as a PPC-6700 then I might have to pass on this generation. The Fuze should be out pretty soon, and I’m thinking/hoping there will be an Android phone based on that hardware…

    – Is the G1 thicker, is it faster than a Palm’s Treo?
    – Will the Market applications be compatible with future Android phones?
    – It it possible to browse the Android Market without having the G1?
    – Are any of the other manufacturers or carriers working on Android phones?

    Thank you for your very detailed review!

  11. T-Mobile G1 aka The Google Android Phone

    […] And a nut shell, this phone is NOT an iPhone Killer at all. And one blog review I read said the phone is going to be lukewarm because it simply isn’t “sexy” as they put it. And I agree. It looks to robotic. I mean, the Google Maps capabilities and Gmail functions will probably be awesome. But there isn’t much in the equation that’ll make Apple’s iPhone run for cover. Or even flinch to say the least. More details and in-depth review by clicking here. […]

    Yet another objective review of Christopher Price, this time of T-Mobile G1, based upon the HTC Dream platform. We are to expect the same device re-branded for another carriers and eventually one model from HTC itself under their own brand. According to some rumors, there are also works in progress on non-touch screen devices (akin the landscape emulator from SDK). Who will get them branded first?

    I have an iphone and I find it to be great device, but a poor phone. How about including phone functionality in smartphone reviews?

    Is there a magnifying software available for this phone? Usage is for a person who cannot hear and is legally blind, and thus font has to be a minimum of 15 mm high. Thanks
