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…
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 offering a physical QWERTY keyboard to boot. However, following hot on its heels seeking a taste of the lime-light is the i6 from Chinese-orientated firm QiGi.
There is no denying that this device bought its casing from the same store where HTC shop, but it does offer a few tricks of its own under the hood. Powered by a 624MHz processor, the QiGi i6 offers either Android or Windows Mobile 6.1. Not bad. Although you won’t be winning any awards from National Geographic with the 2-megapixel camera, the integrated Wi-Fi and GPS may make up for it in terms of practicalities. In particular, the Wi-Fi will come in very useful since the device lacks basic 3G connectivity. Even the 2.8-inch 65k color LCD touchscreen doesn’t make up for that! The standard Bluetooth and microSD slot are thrown in for good measure, and round-up a phone that won’t be breaking any records for the best technology in one device, but will please Chinese consumers with its inclusion of Android.
