Its a bird…no its a plane…no its T-Mobile!

We have always been a fan of reading Business Week, and when we finally came across an article that resonates with this site, we got excited. Rachel Hinman posted an article yesterday afternoon discussing T-Mobile and how it can basically become the mobile carrier we’ve always wanted. Not that it wasn’t already! Still, she makes some excellent points and writes with good foresight into the future of the wireless industry. As the first brave carrier … [read full article]

G1 ramps up SanDisk storage with 16GB card support

g1-unboxing-71

At the press announcement on the 23rd, we were told that the G1 would come included with a 1GB MicroSD memory card and 256 flash memory. Needless to say we were all a little disappointed to hear that 8GB was the highest available size for the current software. However, there is good news! Our friends at AndroidCommunity got their hands on some nice info from a  “Google spokesman.” “We have … [read full article]

Sometimes lightning does strike twice…

Yesterday we posted a few “unboxing” pics that were more tease than anything else, yet we got some eye candy of the box itself. We know you wanted more, we wanted more and it looks like our super secret ninja was holding out on us. This afternoon our inbox had more spy shots and we get a much better look at what is included with the phone. I can only wonder what surprises tomorrow’s emailing … [read full article]

Everyone loves screenshots…

The ninjas over at boygenius are at it again this time scoring purported screen shots from Best Buy showing the expected “launch” dates of both our beloved G1 and the Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 Kickstart whatever other name it has. Word out of boygenius is that the G1 won’t actually be on sale from Best Buy until November 16th. Sounds like a random day to launch a phone but hey, we’re all about … [read full article]

"Unboxing" pics…with lots of imagination required

Well for most of us, there are 22 days left till the G1 launches. Not for this lucky anonymous tipster who sent in what just might be the first “unboxing” pics on the net. We’re using that term loosely because there were unfortunately only a few pics sent in and they leave ALOT to the imagination. That being said remember we aren’t really seeing anything “new” but still, we know you guys love spy shots of the … [read full article]

More G1 pics…

Some of you have probably watched the videos from here a dozen times. Some of you probably managed to print out your pre-order confirmation text and framed it. Is that too much? Should I take it out of the frame at least? Regardless, for those us who weren’t lucky enough to be there on “launch” day, one of our astute forum posters searched T-mobile.com and came up with some nice pictures that are if nothing … [read full article]

More Android please…

android

The good news of course is the days till the G1 launch are whittling down. The BETTER news is that recent reports have both Motorola and Nokia expressing interest in the Android community. Techcrunch just posted a little blurb about Motorola expanding their Android developer team from 50-350, which can only be read as a larger committment to the manufacturering of devices. This of course all bodes well … [read full article]
