T-Mobile G1

According to a post at Pulse2.com and one at The Motley Fool, T-Mobile has already pre-sold 1.5 million T-Mobile G1 smartphones. That’s a pretty impressive... number by anybody’s estimation. Neither site is saying who the source of this number is, though, so we might have to take it with a grain of salt.

My guess is that they are assuming that there...

A member of the AndroidCommunity.com forums has posted what appears to be the first hands-on impressions of the G1 since the launch event last month.

There isn’t a lot of meat to what he... says, but there are a few interesting tidbits that might have been missed by most of the press at the launch event. It’s not very long, but certainly worth the read.

I expect to have my o...

PhoneDog.com is reporting on a rumor it got from two different sources that the HTC Touch HD will show up as T-Mobile’s next Android OS powered smartphone. The one source is some random anonymous... person, the site says, but the other source is someone they claim has a track record of sorts.

I think this is unlikely to happen, but who knows, really?

So far we haven’t seen any on...

T-Mobile G1 emulator

The folks over at T-Mobile have put up a website that includes a G1 emulator that you can play with to get a feel for the device and its Android operating... system. Just make sure to click on the “emulator” button at the upper right hand corner, otherwise you might drive yourself crazy trying to figure out how to get the default 360 degree view to re...

Earlier this evening a T-Mobile rep gave the following statement in regard to the availability of pre-order T-Mobile G1 smartphones.  The pre-order allotment of G1 phones has already been depleted:

Given... the great anticipation and the heavy pre-sale demand for the T-Mobile G1 with Google, we nearly tripled the number of phones initially available for delivery on our Oct. 22 launch date, and have sold through them...

It appears that Philadelphia is the latest city to benefit from T-Mobile USA’s new 3G network. Our parent site MobileBurn is reporting that the Philadelphia’s 3G network went officially... live today, after receiving word from a T-Mobile representative.

Add a few million more potential happy T-Mobile G1 owners to the mix now, I guess

T-Mobile G1 Getting Started guide

It appears that the guys over at TmoNews have been busy. A few of their minions have located the Getting Started and User Guide PDF... file links on the T-Mobile support website.

The getting started guide is 48 pages long, while the full user guide/manual is 141 pages long. If these two PDFs won’t keep you busy for a d...

I’ve just been tipped off by a source at Radio Shack that the T-Mobile G1 will be available in kiosks in Sam’s Club stores, Costco stores, and at Best Buy. Radio Shack owns the cell phone... kiosks that are operated in Sam’s Club stores, but has no affiliation at all with Costco and Best Buy.

The big news, perhaps, is the cost. While I can’t say how much Costco and Best...

While most of the photos below, as well as the video, have been posted on MobileBurn.com, I thought that you guys here – being slightly more fanatical – might like to see the complete... photo set, including the outtakes.

OK, so there’s more than this, in reality, but this should get you started. If you really feel the need to see more – start posting comments and let m...

One of the things to come out of the T-Mobile G1 launch event today was the structure of data pricing for the device. Sadly, the no-data-plan-required option didn’t pan out, and users of the... G1 will be required to purchase one of two data plans. The $25 plan includes 400 text messages and ‘unlimited’ data for email and web access and such. The $35 add-on plan changes the te...
