T-Mobile (HTC) G1 - Google Android Smartphone


The wraps finally come off Google's Android mobile OS, but can the G1 live up to our expectations?

T-Mobile G1 review


To evaluate T-Mobile's new G1 wonderphone is inevitably a review of two halves: the handset hardware and its operating system software. (SEE ALSO: Google Android review) .

HTC T-Mobile G1 review -


The Google Android platform unearths an abundance of possibilities in terms of applications, from the ridiculous to the sublime

While we can just about forgive the lack of a 3.5mm headset port, to not include Stereo Bluetooth is infuriating

HTC Dream


One of the first two Android devices released here in SA, the Dream makes its debut on the MTN network. One of the main things about this device is the way it integrates with Google\'s services.

Excellent keyboard, Google integration, nice touch-screen interface.

No 3.5mm jack, battery life not good, no video, no Outlook sync

HTC Dream


Can Australia's first Google Android-powered mobile phone trump the iPhone 3G?

Full QWERTY keyboard, responsive touch screen, Google Android provides ease of use, potential for future upgrades and new applications, notifications and status bar, excellent integration with Google services, Android Market app store, polished Web...

No auto-rotate, no on-screen keyboard, design flaws, no 3.5mm headphone jack, mediocre non-Gmail e-mail support, no document editor

The HTC Dream is a strong smartphone effort overall and the Google Android OS has a lot of potential. As it stands this phone is missing some critical hardware and software features that prevent it from being a standout product. Early adopters and...

HTC Dream


Google's Android is awesome, but the Dream needs work. Parts of this handset are superb, but its lacklustre design and poor battery life hold it back significantly.

Android interface, Responsive touchscreen, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS, QWERTY keypad

Could look better, Lack of 3.5mm headphone jack, Lack of video recording, Lack of stereo Bluetooth

T-Mobile G1 Review


Updated : When you look at T-Mobile's smart phone lineup, the G1 certainly rises close to the top. We prefer the newer $199 myTouch 3G because of its sleeker design, but those looking for a physical keyboard and a Google phone experience should opt for...

Very good touchscreen, Customizable user interface, Excellent Web browser, One-touch search, Fast data speeds over 3G

Can't input text using touchscreen, No video recorder, 3.5 mm jack, or stereo Bluetooth, Small number of apps in Android Market, Limited cut-and-paste functionality, Runs warm

HTC Runnymede is a distant dream worth dreaming


The HTC line of upcoming phones is quite interesting and intriguing. So we aren't leaving any stone unturned as we set out to explore yet another speculated phone that still has the 'rumor' tag attached to it. Yet, the Runnymede rumor-spec sheet will...
