Customers NOT in 3G markets...

Can I still get the Android? Will it work on GPRS and EDGE networks? Is it still worth it?

I've been salivating over this phone for MONTHS but its only being retailed in 3G markets Sad

But GD its a sweet looking phone...

This changes everything...

If the G1 is successful, the entire wireless industry could change forever.

When you remove the need for proprietary OS's by the providers, you could buy a phone like you would a TV and pay as you go for whatever service you like. No more contracts, no BS... It would force carriers to invest in better coverage, faster networks, and be more competetive with pricing and plans.

The dynamic of how cell phones are bought with a service contract could be old news... When a service provider pulls some BS, you could leave without consequence and use your phone on another network!

That is my dream... and I'm pretty sure thats what Martin Luther King Jr. was dreaming about too...

SE said they're considering Android for XPERIA! ! ! ! !

One poster on BGR's website said hopefully some geek will figure out how to put Android onto the Xperia, I guess we'll find out in the not too distant future, besides, I could've sworn I read that there will be an Xperia with 1700mhz band.
