T-Mobile names next Android handset
Huawei's U8230 - or HTC's Magic?
T-Mobile has announced the name of its second Android-based handset.
In a post on its Twitter page, the network operator announced today that the phone will be called the G1 Touch.
“Very excited! T-Mobile’s highly anticipated 2nd Android phone has been named the T-Mobile #G1Touch – more soon!” the post read.
Google-based handsets are also in the works from Samsung and Vodafone, but given the G1 branding, it's likely T-Mobile's own-brand handset will come from HTC or a company like it.
Such as Huawei, which just yesterday confirmed that its first Android phone – known as the U8230 – will be available in the UK through T-Mobile during the third quarter.
Vodafone has an exclusive on the Magic, but it's not known when the period is due to expire.
Don’t forget to check out the Register Hardware’s full rundown of the U8230’s features – including its “full- and half-Qwerty” virtual keyboard – here. ®
stop using one bloody network for certain phones - let us, the consumer have a choice!! asshats
T-Mobile muck it up
they would have been far better releasing the vario 5 /Touch Pro 2 (which they now inform me they have cancelled after keeping us hangin about for ages) good screen, easy memory expansion and good keyboard all in a neat package. Off to vodafone as a result!
What's with the #?
"T-Mobile #G1Touch"? Is that hash sign really part of the name? It was bad enough when everyone used @ signs for every conceivable purpose in the 1990s, but what is this? Are they trying to make the name show up on Twitter?
Hardware keyboard, hardware keyboard, hardware keyboard
Touchscreen keyboards are SHITE. I hate using smartphones that have them. That's why I like the G1 and its hardware keyboard, even if it is wee. My old MDA and my current Athena also have hardware keyboards. They're much nicer to use.
I was going to pass on the G1 and wait for one with a few more features and better battery life, but now...
World Domination is on it's way. MUHAHAHAHAHA
ALL HAIL THE GOOGLE OVERLORDS!
...What is thy bidding my master?...
