A gaping loophole in Android operating system on the T-Mobile G1 has been exploited by hackers who managed to jailbreak the Google phone. Although they do say that this jailbreak isn’t as impressive as the one that took place on Apple’s iPhone, which took several weeks for the hackers to get though the locks that was placed on the iPhone, the T-Mobile G1 open-source operating system only took the hackers one minute to gain root access, although you would reckon you would have to be a Linux geek to do it this fast.
You can see the hack for the G1 on the XDA-Developers forum, basically you use the PTerminal application to telnet to the device’s IP address and just like magic you how have the root, you can full steps on this hack here.
With this jailbreak it will allow to run your T-Mobile G1 like it was never intended to be. Google have said they are planning a patch that will be distributed to close the loophole.

Who want expensive low feature iphone, the other mobile phones can be hacjed for multitouch and rich in features! Many sizes and many choices
Guys this is the most inconvenient phone I've ever used apple iphone 16GB(without 3G) which is a criminal waste of money reasons there is no forwarding option for SMS text messages no bluetooth compatibility to any other fone or headseats other than apple ..in short that fone is a techno mess(maybe can be a good palm top) as a FONE IT IS A TOTAL WASTE

Repairs are a lot better with Apple they are usually completed within a week in comparison the turn around time for Nokia repairs is 3-4 weeks.
Customer satisfaction is very high with this phone, most of the time people come back to buy accessories which makes more for me!
Krishna, 03 Mar 2009Hi Members,
I here that this year APPLE IPHONE HD is going to release in JUNE, Did anybody ... moreNo... its just rumours. Apple don't say what they are working on. They keep it as a surprise and the day after the release they make millions in the instant hype they generate doing so. The marketing behind it is genius.
With that said, June will be a year on from the iPhone 3G release, hence the assumption that there will be a model to replace it, but as I said, no one knows. There is a MacWorld Expo soon where there will be announcements of Apple's new products and who knows, it could be released then. There is a major software update due in April, which is apparently (hopefully) featuring copy/paste. And with the App Store, the iPhone gets updated every day. Every time I download a new App it becomes a different phone, yet I don't need to fork out for a new handset.
With that all said, Q4 at the least is looking to be the most logical guess for a new release. It is around 18 months on from the original iPhone release, so those of us who got iPhones on release will be able to get an early upgrade (cheaply if not free) to the new handset.
Any new iPhone from Apple will have to exceed that of the 3G to be considered a success, and that means as many sales as possible. The longer they hold off, the more 3G customers who will be eligible to upgrade, meaning more sales for Apple.
I hope this clears up any confusion surrounding the issue.
One final note... remember that when the 3G came out the new OS was a free upgrade for original iPhone owners... it should be the same for the next iPhone. The only difference will really be aesthetics, possibly camera and memory, and if the last two don't bother you (for example, 8 gig is more than enough) then I'd say go get an iPhone now.

I would tell you where to go, you are a very poor salesperson, what gives you the right to make decisions for people.
You won't get far by pushing people onto substandard products they don't want in the first place.
