G1 is free on £40/month from T-Mobile

25,000 people have registered their interest for the G1 on T-Mobile UK’s site. I guess that means I won’t be in with much of a chance to win one. But this does point to a lot of interest from the UK mobile community. It most certainly won’t get the iPhone-style fan-fare — and if T-Mobile’s […]
