We’re at the T-Mobile UK launch of the G1 Android device. We’ve interviews with some of the operator’s executives at the launch — and, guest host, Ed Hodges, tackles James Whatley. T-Mobile were kind enough to send us a G1 to review and, since I’d already purchased one (and spent the weekend playing), we were able to use the other test device for a very special project.
Oh yes… we’ve converted James Whatley.
If you’ve been watching the MIR Shows — or reading any of James’ content, you’ll know what a huge Nokia fan he is. He lives and breathes their handsets and services.
We simply charged up the demo G1 and placed it into the hands of Mr Whatley to see what he’d make of it. (Apart from Whatley’s reaction, I thought this would be rather useful for those thinking about buying a G1 as it shows the steps required to setup the device.)
We’ll have more from James and Ed across this week.
(No Ben Smith and Dan Lane in Week 44 — they were both away.)
