T-Mobile's G1: arriving in the UK at the end of the month

The Combi tariff comes with 800 minutes' talktime, unlimited text messages and "unlimited" internet browsing on the G1's HSUPA/HSDPA 3G connection. Flext also gives you fair-use policy defined unlimited browsing, but you have up to 1250 minutes talktime or send up to 2500 texts a month - or a mix of the two.

Been living under a stone for the past few months? G1 is the first handset based on Google's Android platform. It has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in addition to its 3G connectivity, with a three-megapixel camera and stowable Qwerty keyboard.
