T-Mobile G1, The Original Android Phone Is Now Retired

The T-Mobile G1 should hold a special place in the hearts of Android fans everywhere as we say goodbye to the phone that started it all. Our super forum posters are reporting that word has come down the G1 is now unavailable from both T-Mobile.com, My.T-Mobile as well as retailers everywhere. It’s a sad day as this phone needing little introduction to those who have followed since the beginnings on Android. While its certainly been surpassed by its Android offspring we shall not forget the G1 was the start of a new platform. So raises your glasses to the G1, you’ll be missed.

P.S. For those of you wondering, the above shot was the first branded T-Mobile image to hit the internets. That was back in late 2008. Oh how times have changed.
