HTC G1 Review

Softpedia
28 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Google, a major player on the e-commerce market, but mostly renowned for its Internet search engine and e-mail service, has decided to also get involved in the communications market.
  • Pros: The most impressive feature of the phone is the fact that it can be added more and more features, as time goes by. You don't have the possibility to use the accelerometer with all the device’s apps, but the function is there, and a future update or application can unlock it. I think Android is th...
  • Cons: It's clear that design is not one of the strong points of the G1. Furthermore, I believe that a better Li-Polymer battery would've been more appropriate for the first smartphone to run Android OS. The camera should've also featured better characteristics, or it shouldn’t have been incorporated in...

T-Mobile G1 Review

Digitaltrends
9 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Even with all that we’ve covered here, we’ve barely touched on the G1’s overall sophistication: It’s a wondrous achievement for a first-gen operating system. As such, the G1 is the Phil Mickelson of cell phones – that is to say, it ranks as a star compared to nearly every rival except for the Tiger...

  • Excerpt: The speculation has ceased, the first Google powered cell phone has finally arrived. Dubbed the T-Mobile G1, this new open source (think: not Apple) rebel will hit retail stores October 22 and cost a reasonable $179 with a two year voice and data agreement. This compared to Apple’s $199 entry fee.

Rogers HTC Dream: In Depth Review

17 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Overall, I think the phone is great. It as a lot of potential with the open source OS and I can see Android growing a lot larger. It is laggy at some points and it does tend to freeze a lot more then the iPhone but not nearly as bad as a Windows Mobile.

24 May 2009
  • Excerpt: So by now you’ve probably seen that our Rogers HTC Dream demo unit recently arrived in a locked safe and are wondering why such a fuss has been made over a device that has been for sale in the US from T-Mobile since October of 2008.

  • Summary: There has been a lot of talk about the HTC Dream. And we do mean quite a bit. Introduced as the T-Mobile G1 in the second half of 2008, the first Google Android phone did create quite a stir in geek circles.

Personal Electronics buzz
31 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I have waited it seems like months for the T-Mobile G1 with Android smartphone. I heard about Android, the open-source program by Google. I have been a Googler for years. In my book, there is no easier or more reliable way to search the Web.

T-Mobile G1

MobileTechReview.com
20 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The T-Mobile is a great start for Google's first Android phone. While it might lack features like video recording, A2DP and a built-in video player, usability is top notch and the core functions work well: phone, web and basic email.
  • Pros: Fast and responsive, very easy to use, easy to download applications via the Android Market directly to the phone. Very good capacitive display, good camera photo quality and obviously excellent Gmail support. Excellent call quality.
  • Cons: No 3.5mm headphone jack, can't shoot video, no A2DP, keyboard on brown model lacks contrast. On-board multimedia applications are weak other than the good mobile YouTube player. No desktop or Exchange syncing.

T-Mobile G1 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
16 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Updated : The T-Mobile G1 is the smart phone equivalent of a Google beta application: innovative and mostly satisfying, but it also feels like a work in progress. Key among the G1's strengths is the new Google Android operating system, which, unlike the iPhone, is completely open to third-party...
