** UPDATE** G1 white version hits T-mobile, S’now Joke ** UPDATE**

Wandering out of a blizzard is the latest version of the Android based mobile to appear, now in the colour of white from T-mobile’s online store.

As it’s been around in black now for a while and since they’re dealing with ‘negative’ press coverage all the time, why not produce a negative colour version.

The handset that will be now lost in the snow comes at the exact same specifications as before, with no difference apart from the colouring.

The screen is still at an annoying angle when you’re typing from the keyboard, meaning you have to tilt your head slightly to get in alignment. Yes, we’ve actually seen people do this – it looks much akin to a dog recognising its name.

Its keypad is still a large block, where you have to curl the palm of your hand around to type on the keyboard. Or reach over that unsightly block, both of which causes a hunched shoulder. We’ve also witnessed people do this too just so they can type, it all looks very weird.

In a generations time you’ll be able to spot the people that first used the G1, as their head will be permanently be at an angle from typing and they’ll all have a semi-Quasimodo stance.

The phone is around from now in white and black from T-mobile, enjoy.

** UPDATE**

It’s been confirmed that T-Mobile had their wired crossed yesterday after all.

The albino handset has JUST gone on sale in the US of A, and not the UK.

A T-Mobile spokesperson dropped us a line late yesterday, after the fault was officially confirmed/rectified.

It’s always good to uncross the wires that were crossed, now can T-Mobile and HTC fix everything else wrong with the handset

This, interestingly, is not what T-Mobile are telling us. <grin>

(He types, holding a white T-Mobile G1 that is at least four weeks old — Rob is getting clarification from T-Mobile UK who, apparently, reckon this is still wholly genuine).

white has been out just as long as black since launch day. my store got all white ones in as well as some other stores, and some got all black and no white.

its the US that just got the white version recently. I work in a T-Mobile retail store and booked in the G1's myself ready for launch 🙂

forget the white version check this out –

Much nicer looking handset cover, anyone got one of these? Does it work ok with Orange/Vodafone/O2 etc… SIMS?

I want to buy one of these but no confident that I can just drop my Orange SIM from my crappy Sony Ericsson in and get all the functionality, web, SMS, MMS etc.. working as it would out the box from T-Mobile.

went to buy a G1 dev phone, $171 shiiping from the States!!!!

So, in total its over £400 to get one! Think I'll just get a standard G1 from T-Mobile.
