gsmarena,update ur records, this phone has now been released!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fantastic phone! Wonderful apps, brilliant YouTube quality, very easy to use. It's a whole new universe!
My husband's is black, mine is chocolate. Could not chose color when ordered but happy with what I got.
One of the few things that I'm missing is a Cyrillic keyboard but I am sure someone will develop an app for this and will upload it at Android Marketplace pretty soon.
Panda, 21 Oct 2008i got mine on the launch party and i isnt release till tomrrow so id like to know how you guys... moreDepends when you placed order and how close you live to the location where they shipped the phones from. Mine shipped from KY, I'm in PA, took 3 business days to get it.
The pix don't do it justice. I have mine too, looks waaaay better than I expected. Fantastic call sound quality! Will say more when I play with it a little.
Anonymous, 21 Oct 2008this phone has not been released and no one has it, the launch date is soon haha some people can be so damn cynical. trust me, i have my G1
anyways, two other things i noticed so far....
very few apps, and very few streets with street view capability!
when are they gonna add new cities and states to be included in street view??? and when can we expect new apps?? i dont even see the seismograph(sp) one!
on a good note, the Locale app is crazy! i can automatically adjust my settings based on my location! i set my univesity location to silent, so imma test this out today =)

Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008hey mo! As far as I heard if u work for t-mobile u can't have it another 30 days, is i... moreA lot of employees used their families' accounts and upgrades to get one, also last week for about 2-4 hours employees were able to order the brown one but it sold out a few hours after it was posted.
Great phone not as many features as my I900 but much smoother operation, street view is great. Page view on the internet is much smoother than the Opera on the I900. So far I think it is a great phone.
I had a fiddle with this handset this morning and it is , IMENSE, the street view on google maps is in a league of its own, who ever came up with that idea " well done" the handset overal will give the iphone a run for its money especially as the G1 is constantly connected to the internet. I cant wait to get mine its going to to awsome.
i got mine on the launch party and i isnt release till tomrrow so id like to know how you guys got yours early. i also preordered mine and i wont get mine till tomorrow around 5ish. but for video yall you have to do it click on ur music and it gives you the option to play it threw the video player or you could have gotten the free app from android market if you had the phone early.
I just got my phone in the mail today!!!! (i ordered it the first day that preorders were available, 9-23 i think)
ive been playing with it for the past few hours so i'll give my own brief user review...
-multitasking is smooth and easy, does not drop calls, freeze, or show ANY signs of lagging
-some functions and settings feel a bit complicated (i had a SEk850i), but it is a smart phone, so some hands on time is needed
-the web page doesnt scroll as "smoothly" as iphone(i own an itouch), but other than that it is just as easy to use, and it even loads faster than iphone (based on WIFI, i dont have 3g in my city)
-window shade is HELLAH useful(love this feature)
-touch screen every bit as responsive as iphone (yes ive actually played with many of my friends 3g iphones)
-phone does feel hot when charging, and when i started up the phone, then it gradually cooled down the more i used with it, weird...
i'm open to questions, but i warn you, im not a techy at all....just like nice phones =)

Which means a USA G1 should work just fine over here in the UK :D
Thanks once again.

They told me the phone comes with account pre-sets (something to do with internet access and Google, can't tell what exactly). There is one more thing: G1s' Google talk is free of charge for both incoming and outgoing messages. W/ my BBerry Pearl those went toward my 400/month SMS's and I had to pay for any over 400. This is yet another advantage of having G1 and a Google account associated with it. I am not sure you can have the same type of account with other phones and don't know if the same applies to UK accounts. My advice: talk to T-Mobile UK.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008Working for 1 of the 3 companies involved in this phone and having the handset myself, I hope ... moreDelivery date depends on order date. I ordeded on Sep. 25th and my phones will be delivered tomorrow, Oct. 21 (according to UPS tracking info).
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008Oh sorry, forgot to say that TMobile will only support up to an 8g though.G1 has been tested and works fine with 16GB Micro SD. They've tested it with SanDisk but there is no reason why it would not run with another company's 16GB.

As long as your network is GSM 850 or 900, or 1800, or 1900 and you have way to charge the phone (which will be a piece of cake w/ USB cable connected to computer or w/ car charger), you should have no issues. T-Mobile is a GSM provider and if your provider has the same type of network, you're all set.
