101 Best Android Apps

HTC Dream / G1

The Google G1 is the first Android OS smartphone and is made by HTC. The phone was launched exclusively with T-Mobile in 2008. The phone looks a bit clunky and is slightly heavier than a lot of modern phones but the extra weight is accounted for by the full slide-out keyboard that many people seem to prefer over touch screen keyboards.

T-Mobile G1’s touch screen size is 3.2 inch and screen resolution is 480×320 pixels. The phone has quite a few buttons that allow normal phone operations such as answer, end call, home and back.There is also a menu button and trackball.

From a technical perspective, the phone comes with everything we’ve come to expect from HTC devices including 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support together with a passable 3.2 Megapixel camera and GPS. Being a Google-branded device, integration with all of the Google applications (search, mail, talk, calendar, maps etc.) is seamless and intuitive as is the rest of the Android UI. The phone ships with a 1150mAh Lithium-ion battery and is quoted as having up to 406 minutes of talk time on GSM although reviews seem to indicate that battery life is nowhere near as good as it should be. Extended 2200mAh batteries are now becoming available and are highly recommended for heavy users.
