Yesterday, I recieved a G1 from T-Mobile to try out and play with. The G1 is the first phone to offer Google’s Android Operating System.
The design and purpose of the Android operating system is to encourage openness and innovation.
The G1 is a 3G phone which means that data connections will be significantly faster than traditional EDGE connections.
So far after 24 hours of use, I’m impressed with Android and with the G1 itself. The G1 weighs in at about 4.1 ounces and has a solid feel.
The G1 uses an HVGA (480×320) touch screen, and for someone like me whose has big fingers, the screen is very responsive, and I’ve had very few errors with using the on-screen keyboard.
This coming week I’ll be in Las Vegas for the International Consumer Electronics Show, and I’ll be making the G1 my phone of choice for the week.
Photo gallery will be posted soon and look for full review series over the new few weeks!
