This forum is for discussion of this event. For general discussion of the HTC G1, please check out our HTC G1 forum ›
I would like to personal welcome t-mobile to 3g
On behalf of myself and everyone else who already has this service we would like to say congragulations! for finally catching up. Only to be left even farther behind. Pretty soon we will be on 2 the next generation
DiamondSprintPimp is a more appropriate name
Finally the G1
On 3G coverage, T-Mobile is rolling out 3G VERY aggressively in coming months.
They claim that 2/3 of thei...
The Instinct is just as bad, though I hear they're going to add J2ME support... Wow, J2ME... holy cow.
The iPhone and Android are smartphones running sophisticated OS's-...
Install applications *not* through t-mobile app store?
If you write an application and I want to install it on my phone, I can't unless you submit it to apple and apple approves it and puts it on their app store. (Or I jailbreak my phone.)
As we have seen, apple has refused to distribute developers' applications when they don't like them, such as when they think they overlap with the built-in applications or when they might subvert Apple's or AT&T's revenue model.
Is the T-Mobile G1 any different? Can I install any application I want on my phone without going through T-Mobile/Google? Or do I have to download the applications from the T-Mobile app store? Is the pho...

How many songs you can fit into that much memory depends on the file format, compression, and length of each song.

Lovely, but what can I do with it?
Data service required??
Thank You PhoneScoop
There's been a lot of hype over this launch, and lots of fanaticism for and bashing of this product on other sites. I appreciate your factual product presentation.
The G1 appears to be very much what it is, an early product, a bit rough around the edges, but with the capability to grow as the OS gets updated and apps are developed. I can live with the adapter for headsets, though that WAS a stupid decision by HTC.
I only hope I'm a little happier with the keyboard than you seemed to be.. I've been holding off on replacing my Treo, waiting for this. I've ordered 1 for my wife and 1 for myself. T-Mobile kicks VZW's coverage in my house, and 3G...
Too bad it's made by HTC - so what's the point?
HTC (Heavy Taiwanese Crap) devices always seem glitchy as hell and have really shoddy build quality. The devices made to other manufacturer's specs seem to be solid enough (Palm), but I'll never live down the POS Apache or Mogul.
The real problem is that this device looks like a 'prototype,' not a finished product. I'm not even sure what its purpose is.... the business crowd is going to want a Blackberry, the trendy crowd is going to want an iPhone, and the super-nerds are going to want WM crap.
This phone will be for the nitch market its intended.
Overall the OS looks solid, too bad it's made by HTC, which I think is going to be Android's downfall
The G1 is only the first Android device. Many other manufacturers are also working on their...
