The T-Mobile G1 is also known as the HTC Dream, and is the first phone to use Android, a new mobile operating system by Google. Shown here is the device's home screen. You can drag and drop shortcut applications directly on to it.
The T-Mobile G1 has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, which is great for typing out e-mail and text messages. There's a dedicated Web key on the keyboard that brings up the Web browser. The screen shown here is the Photo Album.

The T-Mobile G1 also comes in black. Note that the bottom navigation part juts out at a slight angle, presumably so the mic is closer to the mouth.
The T-Mobile G1 will come with Amazon's MP3 Store already loaded in the device. This lets you buy and download DRM-free songs over the air.
Since it runs an operating system made by Google, the G1 is primed to handle Google Search and other Google applications. Just enter in your GMail account log-in information, and you are free to access your account whenever you wish.
The T-Mobile G1 comes with a "compass mode" powered by Google Maps. This orients the Street View according to the user's position.
The T-Mobile G1 also comes in this brown hue. The screen is currently showing what looks like a status page, where you can view the currently playing track, incoming text messages, new voice mail messages, plus a news ticker.
