The 'Google Phone'

T-Mobile's G1 is a little late to arrive (Apple's iPhone 3G has already been on the market for two months), but it's still pretty cool. A tad heavier and narrower than the iPhone, the G1 features a petite keyboard, a handy trackball, and a higher-resolution, three-megapixel camera (versus the two-megapixel camera on the iPhone). Along with its Google-designed browser, the G1 features a more powerful version of Google Maps with a built-in compass and 360-degree photos. And Gmail users get instantly notified when new messages arrive in their inbox, instead of having to check manually. The G1 goes on sale October 22 for $179 ($20 less than the iPhone) and will be available in white, brown or black.
T-Mobile's G1 will go on sale Oct. 22 for $179. It is the first mobile phone to run the Google operating system, Android.
