Android announcement: T-Mobile G1 with Google details today

Today is the big day. T-Mobile will be holding a press conference at 10:30 EDT to announce the first phone with Google Android. The rehashed HTC Dream will be dubbed G1.

However, we’ve already learned a few things about the new Google handset from TimoNews. Apparently it is only going to be sold within a few miles of the T-Mobile 3G network areas. So, it may be easier for you to get a Google phone in Aurora, CO than anywhere in upstate NY.

It wil have a 3.1 Megapixel camera, but no video capture – for some unknown reason.

Also, no stereo bluetooth. So, your Oakley ROKR Pro’s will be bumping along in mono.

It will have a nice 480 x 320 HVGA touch screen, GPS, up to 8G memory (expandable, somehow), and plays nicely with all the Google apps.

The T-Mobile G1 web portal is http://announcement.t-mobileg1.com. More product details will be up after the conference.
