HTC T-Mobile G1 photos are up; Google videos show Android in action

The T-Mobile G1 event has just concluded, but news is still pouring out. In fact, HTC has just posted their first official photos and complete specs of the G1 in its shiny new glory. And Google has made available a video that shows off the finer details of Android. It’s a busy morning here on SlashGear, so be sure to stick with us as our coverage continues.

Check out more photos and a video after the cut.

A few notable specs include the 3.2-inch TFT-LCD screen with touch sensitivity. It features a 320 x 480 resolution at HVGA. There is a full QWERTY keyboard, one-click Google Search and a customizable Home screen.

If available in your area, there is a 3.5G network connection, plus WiFi with seamless transition. You will also have access to the Android Market.

The T-Mobile G1 will also allow you to take pictures with the 3.2 megapixel camera with auto focus and you can always add to your storage space with the microSD card slot.


Your Home screen will include access to Google applications such as Search, Maps, Youtube, Gmail, Contacts, Calendar and Talk. You will always be synced up with your Google account as well. So what you change on your phone will change on your Google web account.

This is rather reminiscent of the MobileMe syncing from Apple, but much more integrated. Plus, you don’t have to pay extra for it.

Google Maps is another cool component giving you access to Street View right on your phone. The built-in GPS works seamlessly with the maps software for an intuitive experience.

Check out the Google video, demoing Android below.
