Morning Folks, Happy New Year from yours truly and what not. I had a brief moment yesterday (while chilling out in front of my laptop) when I came across Ed Hodges’ MIR post covering his thoughts on the G1. Some of you may remember that back in November, Ed himself was there when I first […]

Now it’s been out a while, what do you think of the G1?

Hi there, Ed Hodges here. From the videos! Well, more precisely, from the recent Phone Calling Under Water video feature that Ewan published last month. I’ve just got my hands on Ewan’s very own G1. I have to say the software’s brilliant! AND I love the response the handset gives to the touch with smooth […]

In nearly a month from now, Mobile World Congress will be over, done and dusted, put to bed, an ex-event, acabado – finished. What are we expecting to see, what are we likely to experience, what will astound us and what will we all be talking about five weeks from now? From what we’ve already […]

Seidio’s extended battery for the G1

Thanks to Mobile Industry Review reader, Vlad, who shared me a Google Reader item he picked up about a new battery for the T-Mobile G1. Sorely needed. The device is continually online (if you’ve got it switched to constant-sync for email and the like) which does screw your battery quickly. Uberphones report that Seidio has […]

Legitimate unlocked T-Mobile G1 is available

News of the availability of the HTC Dream T-Mobile G1 Android based mobile phone has just reached us. Sadly from the post seen here, it appears you have to be registered as a developer to obtain such wonderment. As it’s really geared up just for them and them alone, but who’s to say we aren’t […]

Unlocking my T-Mobile G1 UK

I’m quite delighted with the T-Mobile UK service on my G1. Just, it is sometimes annoying taking more than one handset out with me — and I often just want ONE handset with ONE ubiquitous number on it. I suspect that the battery on the G1 will make it unusable for me as a primary […]

** 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.

That most useful of useful mobile phone internet browsers Opera mini has become officially unveiled, and for the android OS too. Think back to those heady days of two weeks ago, when VAT was still 17.5% and the BlackBerry Storm was just a pipe dream. Ahhhh, those fond fond memories. We then brought you news […]
