October 31st, 2008 · 1 Comment

Good news for G1 Android fans in UK because T-Mobile launched the new G1 android mobile phone into the U.K. market Thursday. In the U.K. it is available for free on the GBP40 per month Flext or Combi T- Mobile price plans, which include unlimited internet browsing. Here is the press release

LONDON -(Dow Jones)- Deutsche Telekom AG’s (DT) mobile arm T-Mobile launched the new G1 mobile phone into the U.K. market Thursday, as the first phone built using the Adroid operating platform went on sale in its central London flagship store.

Based on an open-source operating system pioneered by U.S. internet giant Google Inc. (GOOG), the G1 is Google’s highly-anticipated first foray into the mobile phone space and went on sale in the U.S. last week on T-Mobile USA’s network.

In the U.K. it is available for free on the GBP40 per month Flext or Combi T- Mobile price plans, which include unlimited internet browsing.

The phone takes full advantage of Google’s internet heritage, with access to the company’s popular web applications like Google Maps, as well as a range of 50 further applications available from the online Android Market.

It plays to the increasing demand for internet on the move as all the network operators report growing demand for either handset web surfing or mobile internet through laptop dongles.

While specific sales expectations weren’t available, a T-Mobile spokeswoman said that pre-orders for the handset sold out almost immediately.

The G1 keyboard and touch-screen phone is the latest handset to be launched into a smartphone market dominated by Apple Inc’s (AAPL) iconic iPhone.
