According to an AndroidGuys.com reader, who claims to have spoken with a T-Mobile supervisor (presumably in the call center), T-Mobile is planning to send out a normal capacity second battery to its... customers, not the larger battery that has been reported quite often recently.

Comments on that post show that users have had mixed results with T-Mobile on the G1 battery issue so far.  One p...

An HTC representative recently told EngadgetMobile that the company expects the updates and enhancements found in the “Cupcake” branch of the Android OS development tree to eventually make... it to the G1 that it manufacturers for T-Mobile.

The rep also said that it was up to T-Mobile and Google to do, however, and that HTC is not involved directly in the process and has no idea as to...

According to the Michael Martin at the GoogleAndBlog, a T-Mobile support rep has made reference to a T-Mobile plan to send out free extended batteries and matching rear covers to users that have bought... a T-Mobile G1 from the company.  Battery life has been one of the major issues for most users, and the supposed new battery would, at 1400mAh in capacity, offer just shy of 22% additional battery life.<...

As far as rumors go, this appears to be among the weakest of the weak.  An “anonymous tipster” has told the guys at CellphoneSignal that the T-Mobile G2 is going to be launched next month. ... If you ask me, this seems more than a bit too soon after the G1 launch to make sense for T-Mobile, though the G2 name is something we have been expecting all along, so anybody with pair of neurons still fi...

We have to recommend that you take this rumor with a large handful of salt before getting your hopes up.  Without pointing out any references at all, ModMyGphone is quoting an anonymous “Samsung... official” as saying that Samsung will be able to release a Google Android powered phone in the USA in the second quarter of 2009.

The post doesn’t say who the mystery official was spea...

As 2008 embarks on the beginning of the end, T-Mobile will undoubtedly look back and remember it as a year for the G1 (ok, and the iPhone 3G). Nevertheless, as Android momentum builds, soon T-Mobile... will not be alone in the world of the drones.

As you will remember, the Australian firm Kogan has recently starting accepting pre-orders for its Agora, an Android sporting touch-screen device o...

T-Mobile UK has dropped the minimum 18 month contract required to get a T-Mobile G1 for free from £40 to £30 per month.

The £30 “Combi” plan includes 700 minutes of talk time,... unlimited texting, and free access to the internet.  The older £40 Combi plan is still available, and offers 100 additional minutes of talk time monthly.

More information is available from t...

This one is a bit scary for any Android fans that plan on doing some international travel.  AndroidGuys.com has received an email from a G1 owner who claims to have been socked with a $102 data roaming... charge after having spent two weeks in the United Kingdom – even when he had the phone’s data roaming setting disabled.

Staff from a T-Mobile store had told our poor victim that as long...

Praise be to the gods of open source.  It appears that some smart fella has put together an app for the T-Mobile G1 that handles automatic screen rotation based on the accelerometer instead of only... rotating the screen when the keyboard is exposed.

Sweet.

That should make a lot of folks happy as they are web browsing and doing things on their G1s (the browser doesn’t support t...

I just got an email from T-Mobile telling us that the G1 is now available to folks in the U.S. in white.  Up until now we’ve only had access to the black and brown models, while the UK has had... black and white.  Now folks in the U.S. have thier choice of all three of the colors when they buy a G1
