A day after it was promised, the HTC Magic limped into Vodafone stores across the UK this Saturday, the 2nd of May. Most stores had not even updated their shop fronts with any HTC Magic advertisements... or general goodies by 11am.

Today we took a trip into Soho, London, UK, to visit Vodafone’s invite only launch for the HTC Magic. The private members club was... a fitting venue for the UK launch of one of the most highly anticipated phones of the summer. Although somewhat hard to find, the venue provided an intimate spot for us to have a face to face with Voda...

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

The T-mobile G1 officially arrived in the UK yesterday. Customers could be seen lined up in front of T-Mobile shops across the UK, eagerly awaiting their very own black (or white) G1s.

The UK... version of the device comes free with a £40 per month contract and is available in black or white as opposed to the USA’s bronze, white, or black. We have no idea why the UK gets different colo...

It appears that the T-Mobile G1 will make it to markets outside of the U.S. quicker than we had anticipated.

The UK’s RegHardware.co.uk is reporting that T-Mobile UK has stated that the... G1 Android smartphone will be available to UK consumers on October 30th, a mere 15 days from now. It will be available for free to users that sign up for a 40GBP Combi or Flext plan, both of which wi...

Google has finally taken the wraps off its first Android phone, the G1 from T-Mobile. The new smartphone runs on Google’s open source software, exclusive to T-Mobile in the States and the UK.
