First mobile with Google’s Android unveiled


The T-Mobile G1 will be the first device to run the search giant’s operating system. The handset features a touch screen and a QWERTY keyboard as well.

In UK, the device will be available in time for Christmas with T-Mobile tariffs of over £40 per month including unlimited internet browsing.


A 3mp camera, a browser that can be zoomed in by tapping the screen, and a ‘one click’ contextual search are some other features. It also has wi-fi and 3G with built-in support for YouTube.


Users will also be provided access to the so-called Android Market, where they can download from a wide range of applications.

In November last year, Google announced its plans for the Android phone software with the aim of making web access easier while on the move.


Google also revealed the Open Handset Alliance that was a partnership of more than 30 firms to make phone software easier to work with.


In this group, operators like Telefonica were also included aside from handset makers such Motorola, HTC and chip makers like Intel and Qualcomm as well.


At the Mobile World Congress that was held in Barcelona in mid-February, many of these partners showed early prototype Android phones.


The basic idea behind Android was to do the same what Linux software has done for PCs.
