Android Lands on TMobile Handheld

first_img Enroll Now for Free This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. T-Mobile may be late to the 3G and ultra-smartphone games, but with Google on its side, it might fare well with the new G1. Comparable in many aspects to the Apple iPhone and LG Voyager, the G1–which is actually HTC’s Dream–is the first to be powered by Google’s new mobile OS, Android. Released in October, the user-friendly smartphone implements one-touch Google Search and other popular Google products, including Google Maps, Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube and more. Synch e-mails, contacts, calendar entries and chats seamlessly across the various Google programs, and access any webpage in a full HTML browser over T-Mobile’s 3G and Edge networks as well as Wi-Fi. Download mobile apps from the open-source Android Market and music from the preloaded Amazon MP3 application (but if you want to listen to music via standard headphones, you’ll need a special adapter). The 5.6-ounce handheld also features a 3.2-inch touchscreen, qwerty keyboard, 3-megapixel camera with photosharing capabilities and a preinstalled 1GB MicroSD memory card (expandable to 8GB). The G1 is available for $179 with a two-year voice plan. This story appears in the February 2009 issue of Entrepreneur.
