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.
