Well it’s out there now.
Google unveiled their phone, it will be from (in the USA) T-Mobile and is made by HTC.
Not much to look at is it?
The key with this phone, is don’t look at the phone, look at the operating system.
We finally, finally got our mitts all over the very first Android device, the T-Mobile G1 — hanging out in the crowd, waiting for the official announce, naturally — and so far we like what we see. The phone is surprisingly thinner than we thought it would be, and it feels pretty solid in your hand (though they’ve opted for an almost all plastic device, no metal here). The keyboard seems usable and reasonably well thought-out, and the slider action is like butter, with a nice little swoop for good effect.
I wonder how long it will be before it comes to the UK.
Think of the potential of learners being able to use Google Docs whilst on the move.
