See the full list here: Androidguys

Update: There is some definite confusion going around with a bunch of articles floating around today about what the Android device will NOT include:

To clarify, bluetooth implementation will be included in the form of handsfree headset usage but not in the API set, or as I understand it it won’t be accessible for development via programming. Googletalk, or gtalk will also not be included in the first run of the Android software due to “security” and “implementation” concerns. Thats really disappointing to say the least considering I live on google talk.

    why wouldnt they include a flash for the camera?? besides that i really need this phone in my life lol

  • bob

  • bob

  • edwin

    who cares about the features!! just give me the phone………………………………………….NOW!

  • aa

    Will it have threaded text messages??

  • http://none some dude

    about gps or not, i saw over at androidguys thata the top three of 50 apps will be bundled in with the t-mobile g1. one of the apps is breadcrumz, which relies on gps to do its thing, so that is a good indication that the g1 will have gps built in.

    Do you guys have confirmation from T-nmoile on the pre-sale release date? When I call customer service, nobdoy knows anything at all and I called my local T-mobile store and nobody knows anything as well.

    I’d just like to have some type of verification when an actualy offical announcement will be made so I don’t miss anything.

    Also, $35 is no deal right now I pay $19.99 for total iinternet add-on plus $14.99 for unlimited messaging.

    IF they want to give us a deal. Make it $19.99 for unlimited EVERYTHING: email/messaging/internet like the sidekick unlimited plan.

    does anyone know more about the UMA feature? Love my blackberry for that while I travel abroad and avoid roaming charges

    I liked reading your story – thank you for sharing

    So let me give you some insider information. The data plans can change because of the fact that companies like RIM and Danger (sidekick) get kickback on their data plans. So when you spend 19.99 for a blackberry data plan some of that money goes back to RIM (no big surprise there). People whining about how it should be 19.99 only like the sidekick unlimited plan don’t realize that the sidekick phones can do that because it is special to the sidekick phones and because the UI of sidekick devices benefit more from it than just having a messaging or data bundle separate.

    As for GPS…cmon people..look at the specs….Google Streetview with built-in compass . This si something I have seen (and I am sure most of you have seen who have watched any videos on the android software). It is GPS. It is like Apple’s stupid little “here you are” kind of mapping, and gives a better GPS experience.

    As for the software….linux (not spelled lenox as some people are spelling ti ehre) is a very efficient software and open source. This allows for many apps to be made for the phone, and not just by google or tmobile. As those of you who have done any research on the android software show. Unlike apple’s Iphone, the android software does not require massive amounts of memory ROM or RAM to run. The software can run on phones with almost no memory in them.

    The stats on this page do have some valid points, but I doubt they are accurate. For one the camera is robably going to be 3.2 mp. Like the nokia 5610.

    the one thing I would like to see is SD card slot and not microsd. I know a lot of people are asking why… and the truth is because you can store more memory on an sd care that micro sd, and you take microsd and us an adapter to make it sd. I have an 8gb microsd in my phone right now, but I would rather have a 32 gb SD card.

    As for presale information…..NOBODY AT THE LOWER LEVEL TMOBILE STORE OR CUSTOMER CARE OR ANY OTHER LOWER LEVEL AREA HAS ANY REAL INFORMATION!!! I can not stress this enough. You know how many people I talk to who say things like “The guy at the store told me the phone would have *insert random technobabble here*” Normall when there is a new phone coming out there might eb some release information given to the associates, but this time there is very little. The only thing the associates know is rumor and speculation. Some based on good information and some just hopefuly speculation. Many tmobile employees are waiting for the info on sept 23rd as well.

    Now none of what I have aid here should be any big whoop or come as any type of surprise here because it is all public information and very blatant public information. I just had to say a few things because …c’mon…reading some of these posts is like trying to watch monkeys determine hwo to program a VCR (while some of the other posts are rather the opposite).

    As the time grows closer, i will say this. I am on the fence as to whether or not buy one. While this is definitely going to be a good phone. I do not like the rumor of no video capture. I know, not a big deal but still a big one to some people.

    I have to wait until early 2009 for my upgrade to get a full discount so i will be waiting to maybe see the version 2 come out or something of the sort.

    I do like the google part. I know it is all google part…but considering I have a good amount of stock in google I will be happy to see my shares rise. I have already made some really good money off google.

    This is sad. There’s more tech specs on this site than on T-Mobile’s web site! HAHA!

    I found out that you have to pay monthly either a 25 dollar internet and 400 text, or a 35 dollar internet and unlimited text to even use this phone. I’m glad I didn’t preorder this one, and to get this phone at full price they want 599.00 thats just crazy I already hate this phone more then the apple haters of the iphone generation. :)
