While we were not fortunate enough to get our hands on a test device we are going to the next best thing and help compile all the G1 reviews you could possibly desire.

**More will be added as they appear

Needless to say the reviews are mixed at best with a number of overlapping opinions and some distinct differences. Some of the reviews are hampered perhaps by a bad handset, bad karma or perhaps just a bad day. There is plenty of praise for the promise of Android which is perhaps the most important aspect to read out of all of these. The G1 is a first attempt at what is hopefully a very successful long line of Android devices for T-mobile. If it takes one handset to work out the kinks and make the next launch the “iPhone killer” T-mobile fans everywhere want then so be it.

Make sure to jump on these links as there are plenty of pictures and videos to satisfy even the most difficult to please.

On another note, has everyone check their tracking numbers?

    Read this on another blog. Sounded good so I copied it…
    ————————————————————-
    My phone not extension of my ummm errr – arm.
    The G1 is open source. That does not sound sexy – understood – but it means everything.
    Android will change the game… and the G1 is my first chance to get my hands on it.
    As for standing out in the crowd ???
    I’m not looking for a fashion accessory nor am I looking for an extension.

    I see a lot of anxious T-Mobile customers here! I wonder what is so special about the famous G1. Is the G1 better than Blackberry? or Palm or any other smart phone? What I can tell all the buzz is because is from Google.

    I have personally had quite a bit of hands on with the device. I think i had it built up in my head a little bit too much though. It is a great phone and the functions are easy. As far as the open network EHHHH. So far i have seen a barcode scanner which is pretty good and of all things a seismograph. The one pun that i do have is it does not have an onscreen keypad, which im sure someone will make soon. and trying to type on the keypad is horrid due to the shape. On the plus side it has a great web browser and the maps are crazy i love the compass mode even though you have to download t he extras from the google market. Overall i give the phone a 8 of 10
