Android T-Mobile HTC G1 Phone for Developers – SIM Lock Free

Android T-Mobile HTC G1 Phone for Developers - SIM Lock Free
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.

If you want to have one you can check out and order the phone over here:

  1. hi android! i got t-mobile G1 phone from my auntie in london and since t-mobile do not work in ghana west africa, i need you to help me acquire my sim network pin for my G1 phone. please let me know your advises. thnak you.

  2. actually knew it from the beginning. Google just replaced the official Android developer phone G1 and Dev Phone 2 with their very own Nexus One. This is what Tim just posted: We’ve always

  3. I bought this phone about 6 months after in first came out, and I’ve loved it ever since. Two years later, it’s starting to show its age, especially when compared with some of the newer Android phones, but it’s by no means obsolete; it still does everything I need it to do (e-mail, web, video, navigation/maps, texting, and phone calls). I use the facebook and Twitter apps, which both run great, although some of the newest, most resource-heavy apps are a bit slower.

    If you’re looking for a lightning-fast smartphone to serve as your mobile computer, go ahead and spend $500 for something like the Galaxy S; if you’re budget conscious, and just want a smartphone to check your e-mail, occasionally surf the web, get directions and navigation, and use as a phone, rather than a Gameboy, this phone is a great choice.
