Nov. 3, 2008 - PRLog -- The arrival of the T-Mobile G1 Mobile Phone Android signals the opening round of the battle between Google and its rivals, like Nokia and Apple, to create software for the next generation of mobile phones that allows users to connect seamlessly with the internet. In techie speak, well Google words anyway a - "Android platform is software stack for mobile devices including an operating system, middleware and key applications. Developers can create applications for the platform using the Android SDK. Applications are written using the Java programming language and run on Dalvik, a custom virtual machine designed for embedded use, which runs on top of a Linux kernel".

A Google's opinion using a Mobile Phone today “does not just mean a phone call, but rather access to the world’s information” and that mobiles will be one of the most important ways to connect to the internet in future.

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” that helps you navigate around the screen.

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 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.
