Video: T-Mobile G1 Unboxed, Fondled, Reviewed


If you were one of the first people to pre-order the hotly anticipated T-Mobile G1 smartphone, you may be receiving a special package as early as tomorrow. For the rest of us, we can live vicariously through the video embedded below. Take a look at this lucky bugger unboxes the Android phone, fawns over it, and provides his thoughts on just about every last millimeter.

The video comes courtesy of Android Community and it’s a fairly lengthy video review. The video is six minutes long, but it really doesn’t say anything that you haven’t heard already.

It is notable that there is no task manager in Google Android, so I’m not sure how you go about completely shutting down applications that are either frozen or stuck in the background. This is Android 1.0, so hopefully the devs will rectify some minor quirks for the platform in future iterations.
