Happy Monday: A Trip Down Memory Lane

For Android fans old and new there should be a special place in your heart for the phone that started it all, the G1. The arguably poor design with difficult hand placement over the “bump” combined with what was considered a great keyboard made for an interesting handset that set us down a path some never thought would materialize as it did. No matter what, the G1 was the Android phone that started it all resulting in Android becoming a super power in the phone industry.

Enjoy the G-Series family tree!

Happy Monday!

    Isn’t the G series supposed to have a slide out keyboard. I wouldn’t considering the G2x a part of the group of G series phones.

      Comments like these really make me laugh. Seriously, it’s too much now. People say it can’t be a ‘G’ phone if it’s not made by HTC. Others say they don’t consider a device truly part of the G series because it doesn’t have a physical keyboard. You don’t consider the G2x as part of the G series..lol how does that work? Let’s just be real. T-Mobile owns the G name, not unlike how Verizon markets the ‘Droid’ moniker. It has nothing to do with what YOU might want X device to be, or how you want it to fit in line with previous iterations. It’s just another choice under the same umbrella.

        its a “G” series because it runs stock Android without a dumb UI on top of it

          Right! That was the first thing a TMO rep said to me when I walked in the store. It has to do with a pure Google experience, not a keyboard.

    Loved the G1… and never loved another phone from HTC after that. But oh how far we have come!

    You know that it’s only the G1 owners that are taking advantage of the contract pricing on this new batch of dual-core devices. Anyone else, like myself, that have the second and later android devices, in my case the MT3G, is still months away from our 22 month commitment. 2 Years is way too long to have to commit before upgrading. I can barely make and answer a call on my MT3G, it’s so laggy. Hopefully the SGS2 and other choices will be available 2Q when I too can enjoy a subsidized, new phone.
