Just found this announcement in one of the news sites I follow every day. Google announced that a SIM-Lock Free HTC/T-Mobile G1 phone is now available for Android™ developers. So you need to have an Android Market developer account to be able to access the phone. Like me I guess many developers all over the world were looking for this kind of oportunity to get a phone for their testing purposes. Thanks Google!
Besides the SIM-Lock freeness this phone also has a nice artwork on the back (see photo) with our beloved Android logo. It looks slim, nice, modern and just chic. It costs only $399 and can be shipped to the following countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States of America. Be aware if you are not located in the US. The shipping costs to Germany for example are $179 (incl. tax and customs) which is quite high compared to the actual device price. You just see this at the end of the purchase process. If you are located in Hong Kong you cannot buy it there but you can buy it here.
