Confirmed info leaks…

“Available in all stores within 3G boundary area, regardless of whether or not store is in a 3G dead spot. Available in some locations directly outside of the 3G boundary area due to the fact that some customers who live in the 3G boundary area shop within a 2 – 5 mile radius and the store they would go to is outside of the 3G boundary area.
For those stores not in 3G markets, a demo unit and merchandising will be in store so rep can show customer what the experience on G1 is like on the 2G network. If customer is ok with experience, Rep can help them purchase a device on T-Mobile.com” Looks like we called that one.

  • Brian

    That is awesome, thanks for the info.

  • cubs

    wow.. too much information to take.. So, does it say when it goes on sale?

  • laphoneuser

    Can someone tell me if video capture can be added in the future via a software update, or is it a hardware limitation?

  • jimbo831

    Unfortunately there is not yet a launch date listed. I definitely think the pre-sale that was first posted right here will start tomorrow after the announcement. The question to me is . . . when do we receive it?

  • Persia

    I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF RIGHT NOT. AAAAAAHHHHH

  • drunkmoose

    omG. g1 is really here! thanks tmonews.

  • Namo

    So video? Dang!

  • s2krob

    Yay!!! Im just wondering what the price will be if your not eligble for an upgrade :( and why no stero bluetooth??? And no corparate email wtf? Isn’t that gonna hurt there supposed 400,000 unit sales by 09?

  • I just wanna know the retail price of it? cause i might have to get it like that, since i’m on my grandma’s account, and she doesn’t really want another contract extension, lol

  • brian-y

    if you look at the pic of the phone with the white guy holding it , the white version G1 . the keyboard on that 1 has like a metal look on it this 1 in black is all blacked out . nice the finished phone

  • McBravio

    Freaking Beautiful!!!!! Can’t wait to get my hands on this thing in SF! Thanks Tmonews for the sweet dreams tonight!

  • Namo

    I think I’m gonna wait for the G2 if they come out. The video thingy really dissapointed me. I luv to take video of my kids and send them to grandma and grandpa Tmo numbers. Oh well. Sorry G1

  • Ty

    Does anyone know if the phone will be useable as a mp3 player? Possibly if I will be able to sync it with my computer? Also, will I be able to put movies on it? Two big things for me: I don’t want to have to lug this AND my ipod around. So, if anyone can tell me mostly for sure if it will be able to be used as a portable media device, I would greatly appreciate it. (:

  • BL@Z3

    I like the white one better who’s wit me?

  • FFej

    it has to have video, every HTC phone out in the last year has video. i’m sure its fully loaded, we just don’t have all the specs yet. What do they mean by sign in with gmail account though. tahts weird

  • sman234

    i can go w/o stereo bluetooth, but not video, i guess we’ll find out for sure tomorrow.

  • TH3 GAM3

    Some of the information is kind of disappointing. No video, no stero bluetooth. I really hope it has a 3.5 mm jack then.

  • Persia

    here some info.
    you will be able to record video with programs like iphone. it is mp3. it will be able to be used as portable media and sync with pc. will use flash so u can use as memory card. the fact that is open source means capabilities are endless. im working on some programs. when finished will share and my programs will be free. wooooo

  • mojo fett

    Processor speed and RAM/ROM?

  • jimbo831

    FFej, it does not have video. The info specifically says no video. That was not posted because it didn’t mention video, but it said specifically there is no video capture.

    @Ty. It should work well as a media player. Google “TunWiki Android” and you’ll find an awesome media player that is being made for Android. I just hope they add stereo bluetooth later for better audio listening experience and if they don’t have 3.5 mm stereo, you will be stuck with their headphones or using an adapter.

  • SocialGlare

    yesssss google!!!

    thanks tmonews! oh and jTron for letting me use his internet bc i have no electricity :(

    i hate you ike!!!!

    but i love jTron!!

  • mojo fett

    So can anyone order one online even if 3g isn’t in there area?

  • jimbo831

    @Persia, that is great to hear you think it will be able to have video recording added. To me the most important feature missing is the stereo bluetooth and I know some WinMo phones have had this added aftermarket by developers, but Android still hasn’t let out the Bluetooth APIs due to “security risks” meaning that won’t be possible until they do.

  • peestandingup

    NO STEREO BLUETOOTH?!?!? WTF?? Thats pretty much a common feature now in smartphones.

    God I hope this is wrong because that kills it. Streaming music via BT to headphones, car stereos, etc without wires is a hot feature right now.

  • Namo

    Persia; If you put it that way, Hilo G1. muah muah muah!!!

  • Persia

    it is simply 100% that a program will come out for video capture. this phone will not disappoint

  • Ty

    @ Persia,

    What do you mean “you will be able to record video with programs like iphone?” Does that mean that the speces we have above are wrong and you will in fact be able to record video?
    Or do we have to download a whole seperate program since it is an open platform?

  • I love it, can’t wait until tomorrow. Someone has to make app so you can use the Dream/G1 as a modem for the laptop!!

    Rich

  • TechnologyXDA

    Dumb “DROID DREAM” Phone, no video capture, no bluetooth stereo, that Dumb “DROID DREAM” phone, just turned into a nightmare! Some people will buy anything, the phone you want is here http://sonyericsson.com/x1/ ……….!

  • Persia

    @peestan
    u have to understand that for something as revelutionary as Android there will be minor setbacks “disappointments” at first, but do not fear. like jimbo said they still havn’t released the Bluetooth APIs yet. just be patient. Don’t u remember how iphone was when it first came out. it was a glorified ipod

  • Persia

    @ty
    yes i do mean with a 3rd party software like how it is with the iphone. im really not sure why manufactures do this but there is prolly a very good reason behind it that benefits them.

  • Rhage

    The phone looks cheap, really cheap and is far from slick. HTC has always done great work, this is far below their potential. Case in point, they just released the HTC Touch HD, now that is a phone I would line up for, but not this.

  • Persia

    @rhage.i think the phone looks great, even so the OS is what really is the breakthrough here. look at it from the macro-prespective not micro.

  • Tmo Android

    Hmm I’m not making any judgements yet seeing as every other leaked report said that it had stereo bluetooth. I don’t see why they would not put that on there. So I am waiting for the official announcement tomorrow before I pass judgement. Not base it off the “offical” leaked specs.

  • Chairman Mao

    If this information is true, then T-mobile truly sucks a%$! 3G will not be in my area according to their most recent coverage map, so getting the G1 would be totally pointless. T-mobile has really dropped the ball with their 3G, and really screwed their customers.

  • Ty

    I may be asking a very stupid sounding question, but I have not really started to become technologically savy until not too long ago.

    So, can soemone explain exactly what “stereo bluetooth” is, what it does, and why it is such a bid deal that this phone may not have it?

  • Blue Alien

    I’m wondering how much the data plan will be. I would not mind paying 15 a month for it but as a high school student, having a required data plan kind of puts me off.

  • Persia

    its to hook up ur phone to bluetooth speakers and headphones and for it to be in stereo and no mono. helped?

  • Ashandri

    IMAP might be an OK compromise for email, as most Exchange servers will do it. That doesn’t help with Contacts though, so export from Outlook, import to Gmail then sync to the phone, except for the contact photos. Not so good. Maybe if they did IMAP >and< Outlook-sync.

    This phone is starting to sound like more trouble than it’s worth.

  • Persia

    im pretty sure it would have outlook sync. even regular phones can sync with outlook. Shi* even the iphone syncs with outlook and their anti microsoft..lol

  • Ty

    @ Persia,

    And since it is bluetooth, that would mean that it is conpletely wireless right?

  • Persia

    @ty
    correct sir. some people use it some don’t. personally for me its not a deal breaker, but some have bluetooth speakers in their room or have headphones they use so they don’t have to deal with tangeled wires, downside tho. BT kills ur battery

  • Ty

    @ Persia,

    It s not a problem for me either, I have never used a bluetootn headset on any of my cells before, and I have gotten along just fine without it.

    I just want a phone that has all the features of the iphone and more, and comes on tmobile.
    If this phone can do that; I am sold.

  • J-Hop2o6

    just wait for the OFFICIAL report 2marro…

  • Yeah the X1 for me too

  • Persia

    the 8gig expandable made me very happy. also people no one has seemed to mention the state of the art mechanism. the reason its so funky is: usually phones with slider keyboard they start loosing their stiffness and start gettin a bit wobly i.e Wing. but with this mechanism there is less moving parts and uses a titanium spring so it will maintain its stiffness. trust me this is not a cheap sliding keyboard. this is the new Shi+

  • talon

    chairman mao, don’t be mad just because you live in an area no one cares about. I don’t know why so many people are complaining about these specs. No stereo bluetooth? OMG its the end of the world? How many times do you actually use it? I believe it should have it but oh well, I would gladly give that up for the other awesome things its has, like GPS and WIFI. I hope all you people who complain about it don’t end up getting it so you won’t slow down our 3G speeds ;)

  • Greg

    Just read presumed specs. Even worse. Ugly phone, no video, average screen, and worse the only way to listen to music is with a frackin HTC connector. So dumb… so dumb… even HTC knows this is dumb look at their real hardware the HTC HD.

    THis is a joke phone. God I’m pissed I had such high hopes. Happy beta testing this crap. Maybe when G2 hits they’ll get something right. So disapointed!!

  • salmonmoose

    I think we’re all forgetting something here – it doesn’t have these features out of the box – but there is nothing stopping people building them.

    Now, if I could get one of them in Australia, it’d be a sale :)

  • Tmo Android

    Wow some people are getting so bent out of shape over something that is still not confirmed till tomorrow. Just wait and see. Plus the expectations are so high for this phone that it won’t please everyone. Sounds like some people are thinking this is going to be a god among phones.

  • Armo

    as much as i wanna get this, i bought a sidekick slide in july and im unemployed! :(
    and id rather get the t919 since it seems much cooler. ya this has andriod but…….its not enough of a reason for me to get it. now if only tmobile would get the Touch HD with android, or maybe even touch pro with andriod……that would be an T-Mobile “Dream”. get it? im so lame.

    but all in all it looks much better then wat we saw before and it has everything i thought it would so way to go tmobile.

    so about the t919…….?

  • s2krob

    What are you talking about ANDROID IS GOD!!!!!!
    Lmao

  • Chairman Mao

    Talon – I live 45 miles away fro Tmo’s USA headquarters, in a city of 200,000 people, which borders the largest U.S. Army base on the West Coast as well as a major Air Force base. In other words, kiss off, the Puget Sound is VERY important. T-mobile sucks, the phone is ugly, and I am going to switch to a carrier that is actually usable for wireless communications.

  • jdawg

    by living in tacoma washingoton..does this mean i won’t get 3g cuz im not in seattle?

  • DiscoDapper

    Jeesh… stereo BT, no biggie (sound quality / battery life), video capture, no biggie (to be added later for sure), BUT what catches me is the screen resolution 480×320… I was sure it would at least get VGA, per Diamond and Touch Pro. That IS a big deal. Might hold off to get a Touch HD now and see how Android runs on that once the XDA folks port it. The reason the resolution is such a big deal is that it makes the web experience dimunitive. No Android magic or later patch can really compensate for a 800×480 screen such as on the Touch HD. Shame on HTC. The HD should have been the Dream… Wonder if Microsoft had anything to do with retaining the high end of HTC’s models for WinMo.

  • s2krob

    Go DIAF

  • jake

    For people ask questions about video, I’m quite sure it will have video playback, given that is pretty much standard on all phones, and it has the basic h263, h263, mpeg4, 3gpp codecs and a “mediaplayer” class. I expected it to have video capture out of the box given it also has all the encoding codecs for it and a “mediarecorder” class:
    http://code.google.com/android/reference/android/media/MediaRecorder.VideoEncoder.html
    http://code.google.com/android/reference/android/media/MediaRecorder.OutputFormat.html
    http://code.google.com/android/reference/android/media/package-summary.html

    If it doesn’t, it should be pretty easy to add on afterwards by way of video recording apps.

    For bluetooth, initially it’ll only have basic bluetooth headset support like the iPhone does (iPhone also doesn’t have stereo bluetooth). Full support (including stereo bluetooth) will come FOR SURE later:
    http://android-developers.blogspot.com/2008/08/some-information-on-apis-removed-in.html

  • TechnologyXDA

    Yeah, that’s why this is my favorite mobile device, check out the videos here http://xperiancers.com/multimedia/ ….! It’s got it all, Now this is the DREAM you want! Just think, an emergency comes upon you and you need 30 seconds of video, but your phone does not have that feature, video capture! That’s not the DREAM you want to have, that situation would be a nightmare……!

  • GrayT

    The phone sux physically. A trackball in the middle that will get easily pressed if in ur pocket/purse. Looks like the baby of a sidekick and a iphone. I hate the clip at the bottom. Why didnt they design it sleek like the other cool htc phones that sprint is getting.

    Im still gonna test it out anyway, I love Tmobile. No Vide,no corp email, and no bluetooth doesn’t bother me much. Never use those functions. Plus my job only allows blackberries for corp email anyway.

    Why couldnt we get the Touch Pro :(…I LOVE that phone

  • Chairman Mao

    Talon is obviously the anti-military type.

  • T1 Connect

  • Chuong

    No A2DP blows but no video recording sucks even more.

    I wonder if the browser works with WiFi w/o data plan.

  • tod

    that sucks, required data plan? I read that it will be 25 a month for that.

  • Please make a lot of live video coverage before, during and after the event tomorrow in New York, use Qik.com to do live streaming.

  • kevin

    Why does it say the phone won’t work without a data plan? That doesn’t even make sense. That lost a lot of the drive for me in this phone. Sounds to me like they are just money whores. Some months I want data plan some months I don’t. I might wait for the x1 or touch pro now.

  • I’m a tmobile fan, and I will try to get this! THIS IS AWESOME!

  • sbike

    Sounds good so far. But so much unknown… Wifi? UMA? Accelerometer? CPU? RAM?

  • David

  • rommel

  • me2

    Ok, a couple things are confusing to me. #1, reading the first words on this page imply that it IS “available in all stores within 3G boundary area”. so can I buy this 2/23? or should it read “will be available at some point”? #2 What does “open system” mean; can I run any plam OS or pocket PC Windows software on it? little help please?

  • I’m so excited for the release of this phone…its def been a long time coming.

    But I don’t understand why everyone is hating on some of the leaked info. Oh k so it requires a data plan. Doesn’t the iPhone. And moreso what’s wrong with a carrier wanting the user to be able to use all the features on the phone. That’s like getting a BlackBerry and not using e-mail or having a sidekick and never instant messaging or getting online. It defeats the purpose of the phone…

    People are always going to hate and are always going to complain…but you can at least wait until its officially released and tried out by people…

  • me2

  • Victor

    Damm this is one ugly phone! I hope they change the design.

  • To All YoU hater

    Microsoft does not warrenty my Hacked XBOX
    Apple does not warrenty my hacked I phone

    G1 does not need to be hacked. Its already open. For all you people crying about what it does not have, STFU. and for anyone who can’t wait i’m with you.

    oh and when the G2 comes out i’m gonna transfer all my cool S%$#@ from my G1 onto it smile and be glad my phone beat your dad up sit on that an spin haters!

  • The lack of stereo bluetooth isn’t really that big a deal. If you’ve ever used a bluetooth headset for audio, you have to keep the phone above your waist (read shirt or arm band) in order for it to play smoothly.

    Even then simply turning your head quickly can make the music skip. If you have to have it in your shirt, the cord reaches just as easily and will provide better sound quality.

  • Hmm, this is a very, very ugly mobile phone… looks “very german”… and I am a german. :-)

  • james gore

    No business e-mail so you can’t open attachments or set up 10 e-mail accounts like the blackberry. I hope that’s false info. The phone doesn’t come with memory on board…….. This is shaky I been telling my Iphone buddy this is gonna be the next ground breaking phone. they never get the basic features.what you guys think? Still getting the phone lol!

  • poltergyst

    was told by a rep yesterday at a grand opening store that i won a sunset blackberry curve from that it would be available october 13, was “what they’d been told.”

    didn’t say anything about colors though, and i was slightly amused that several of the chargers still had “works with motorola z6w” on them. makes me wonder why it was canceled..

  • Jim

    looks like I am going to have to keep another like fort blackberry and have an open one for the G1! One for work and one for play!

  • p84

    wow, a bunch of crybabies on this website.
    someone should dump some shiny lacquer on the phone so you all can think it looks pretty. get an iphone if you want an iphone.

    what did you really expect the phone to do? 1280×720 res screen? 5 inch screen? comes with microsoft office?

    video and stereo bluetooth can come with time. the iPhone lacked in a TON of features when it debuted, and still hasn’t caught up yet and it’s been 2 years.

    rolling out an entire mobile platform isn’t exactly a simple ordeal. this phone delivers on everything it promised so far, and most of you people were expecting something almost unreal?

  • Marcelo Lopez

    No video capture….someone will create a video capture app

    No stereo bluetooth….someone will certainly update the BT stack.

    But no exchange support, only POP3 ? C’mon. No attachments,
    who are you kidding ?

    Why again would I switch from my unlocked ATT 8525 running EDGE(!) again ?

    I’ve been with TMo ( nee OmniPoint ) for 10 long, arduous, grueling years ( mo’ minutes, anyone ? ), and this is what they offer me in the way of cutting edge ?

    I’m not just disappointed, I’m VERY disappointed.

  • badbob001

    That talktime/standby time spec is about the same as the Shadow’s spec. In other words, expect to run out of power just as you leave word with just casual use. Or about two hours for people playing with the new features on the first day. Also seems to be about the same talktime as the iPhone 3G, but at least the mini-usb port makes finding a power source a little bit easier. I predict an extended battery within 6 months.

  • SheShe

    OMG Finally!! yaaaay

  • PittsburghGuy

    I’m a little confused…I know the phone isn’t going to be as sweet in my crappy, 2.5G Pittsburgh EDGE network – yet I still want to buy the phone!!! Does this mean I’m not able to??

    Thanks in advance!

  • TheGeek

    One question: Will those Google applications work with Google Apps accounts? I remember that some of Google’s mobile applications, like the Java-based Gmail mobile client, doesn’t work with Google Apps.

  • SheShe

    Does that mean that the phone is in stiores today or are they yet ro release that info??

  • I’m betting the lack of video capture is related to a lack of software support, so perhaps it’s possible that it will be added on later… and if we are really lucky, maybe the same issue with A2DP.

  • John

    I’m most people here. I’ll probably get the phone. But there is a few things maybe someone can answer for me. What is the differance between Gmail and Corporate Email? Why would you need Gmail just to browse the internet? If its like $25 for the data plan I’ll pass, too much for me. Unless I sign up then cancel after a month service then use the phone.

  • MrGibbage

    OK. I live in Virginia Beach, edge only right now. I just called my local t-mobile store and the lady who answered knew nothing about the G1 going on sale today. So, where do I go to web order it myself? I don’t need their help–I’m a big boy now.

  • PittsburghGuy

    @MrGibbage

    http://announcement.t-mobileg1.com/#

    I’m sure the ‘Get it First’ button will be activated after the Press Conference

  • Scott

    While the bluetooth stereo may be added in the future, if the hardware doesn’t support video capture, that’s the end of that.

    I am /most/ disappointed with the screen resolution. I really expected 640×480 in any modern phone. Probably a cost/battery life concession?

    Can the lack of corporate email support be addressed with a third-party application? I’d be happy if it just vibrated/rang when I got outlook email, then I could use outlook web access to get it/view attachments/etc.

  • I have a hard time Google would leave out the ability to take videos with this phone. Unless it was not cost-effective, they are leaving out what could separate themselves from every other player. If Flip video can make a video camera under 100 bucks, surely Google can figure out how to make this phone video capable. Take a video, upload it to youtube with one click. Sounds like a no brainer for Google.

    other carrier offers a total internet package with a flexpay option,(month to month.)my t-mobile wing is falling apart
    after dropping it so many times. the speaker blew out due to the strong winds while riding on motorcycle. i couldn’t find a t-mobile repair center. i am looking forward to the G1 for the many benefits similar to the helio,the instinct,the dare,and the iphone. this is an ideal smartphone for anyone with less than perfect credit,with a month to month payment(flexpay) option.

  • Janelle

    Hi… I currently have the T-mobile wing and I pre-ordered the G1.. However, that was an impulsive move on my part b/c I’m not sure the G1 will give me some of the features that are important to me… One feature I hope the G1 can do is sync with my outlook calendar and contact list… does anyone know if that’s possible?

  • drewhill

    how do i play listen to my music with out a headjack?

  • Eddie.O

    Well… Xl seems to be the top competitor right now it has bluetooth at least… and well it also has windows software,mp3 *Up to 400 MB Phone Memory* MicroSD support, everything basic and nessesary plus it looks way better look for yourself and (GOOGLE) it you be the judge… XPERIA™ X1 now copy paste lol…

  • I called t-mobile on the 23rd and pre ordered my G1 for 179.95 after extending my contract 2 years. The street price is supposed to be 399.95. The phones will be delivered on October 22nd to all those who pre-ordered, but they do not have a date as to when they will hit actual stores. I imagine sometime in Nov? T-Mobile’s existing data plan is 19.95 unlimited, so the upgrade for the ability to take advantage of the 3G is not only expected, but understandable; bandwidth costs money, people.

    ALL of your problems with “doesn’t do this, doesn’t do that” is the whole point of their campaign. This is an OPEN SOURCE phone, if you want a stereo headphone, build the software. If you want video, go for it. If you want to build an app to count your steps using the built-in accelerometer, go for it. Google is giving us a clean slate to build it to be what WE want it to be. Just like they always have with all of their products. Thats why Google is leading in innovation and going to take over the world, right? If you want a phone that is pretty and made for people who don’t want to think, buy an iPhone like all the skinny girls at the clubs.

    Can’t wait til mine comes in. I’m going to build an app that tells me to slow down every time I take off too fast in my car…

    @Janelle and other Outlook users
    Why bother with Outlook (other than work email) on the GOOGLE phone? It was made to work with your google calendar and gmail account. If you already use google for everything online this phone should make life so much easier for google users in a world built for Microsoft users. I’ve ordered mine and should be getting in about a week
