How’s the Google G1 Android Phone?

T-Mobile today unveiled the G1, the HTC Dream phone based on the Google Android platform. It’s basically an HTC phone so T-Mobile’s $179 + 2 year contract price may hint of a possible unlock price when it goes global.

First things first though, the actual specs of the T-Mobile G1 phone:

– 3.2 inch touch screen (480×320 pixel resolution)
– 2GB internal storage (up to 8GB via microSD)
– 3MP camera
– WiFi 802.11 b/g
– qwerty keyboard

What’s still unsure is the actual price of the handset once it ships out to other regions but based on the pricing history of previous HTC mobile phones, it might not be pretty:

HTC Touch Dual: Php36,000
HTC Touch Diamond: Php42,000
HTC Touch Pro: Php50,800

HTC Dream (Google T-Mobile G1 Phone): somewhere between Php36,000 – Php50,800. It could be somewhere in the vicinity of Php42,000 just like the Diamond.

So if people got frustrated with the iPhone 3G’s price, no doubt they’ve be more frustrated with this one (to think that Google Android is free).

    one u need wifi connection. plus a computer. go on google and they have ways how to setup your g1 to be able to get into wifi settings during the registration screen. from there, u can use the wifi to sign on google.

    type something like how to register g1 without data plan. the whole process can be a little complicated but its worth it
