New Google Mobile Phone | T-Mobile G1 Mobile Phone Review
The T-Mobile G1 has just been released in the UK. The Phone has been developed bt HTC and Google and looks set to challenge Apple's iPhone.

A Google's opinion using a Mobile Phone today “does not just mean a phone call, but rather access to the world’s information”
The new Google Mobile Phone does not seem to offer a ground-breaking feature to rival the “wow factor” of the iPhone’s touchscreen. Instead, the G1 happily adopts the best features of the iPhone and BlackBerry — two of the best smart phones on the market.
It has the easy-to-navigate and intuitive touchscreen, like the iPhone. But, like the BlackBerry, it has a qwerty keyboard, which slides out, and a “trackball”
The internet giant emphasised that the phone is not a “Google phone” per se, as it is manufactured by HTC, a Taiwanese manufacturer, and will be offered exclusively by T-Mobile in Britain. To obtain the phone, customers must sign up to an 18-month contract that costs £40 a month.
The phone may represent a threat to Apple’s iPhone, iPod and iTunes, as with a Google G1 you can download digital music from amazon.com. As a result, about six million tracks will be available on the G1 at the touch of a button.
In terms of style and design the Google G1 cannot compete with the Apple iPhone sleek design and to touch, the G1 looks and feels plastic and clunky by comparison. The mobile allows easy access to Google’s range of online applications, such as Gmail, its personal e-mail service, and YouTube. The G1 also allows you to see Google Maps in “street view”, so you can explore cities virtually, as if standing on the street corner itself.
However, the hype that goes with the G1 has less to do with ground-breaking new features, and more to do with Google’s innovation — the Android operating system that runs the mobile phone. Google’s aim, which is there busines plan, is to get more people online, using search and advertising services - this is Google cah cow. Google hopes to take the lead from Apple by making Android “open source” — meaning that people will not be charged to use it on their handset or for writing applications for it. This means that anyone can write programs that will run free of charge on an Android-powered phone.
