Using the HTC G1, 10 years later: 2008’s smartphone is effectively a dumbphone in 2018

Monday, December 24th, 2018

As you may have noticed, this post originally appeared on Android Police earlier in 2018. As much of the AP team is away for the holidays this week, we're showcasing some of our favorite posts of the year. Enjoy!

Going into this series, I hoped I’d get back to the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream and be able to romantically wax about where Android came from. How the G1, though dated, still held up the promises made by Google's first Android effort back in 2008.

Nostalgia trip: A decade of Android wallpapers, from the G1 to the Pixel 2

Thursday, September 27th, 2018

You may not have heard, but Android turned 10 this week. Over the course of the past decade, Google has loaded its phones up with tons of quality wallpapers — and here, we've tried to create a comprehensive repository of them.

This collection doesn't include live wallpapers, which are a little trickier to share, or the dozens of wallpapers available through Google's Wallpapers app. But it does feature more than 100 of the backdrops that have graced our mobile screens over the years.

10 years of Android phones: The ten most important handsets of the last decade

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

Ten years ago this week, the first Android phone was announced - the T-Mobile G1. No one could have predicted the massive success that Android would eventually become; the OS now has over two billion active users worldwide.

In honor of Android's 10th birthday, we're taking a look at the most important and influential Google-powered phones of the past decade. Every one of these devices redefined Android in some way, by pushing the OS further into the mainstream, introducing design trends, or signaling the start/end of an era.

Going into this series, I hoped I’d get back to the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream and be able to romantically wax about where Android came from. How the G1, though dated, still held up the promises made by Google's first Android effort back in 2008. Analytically, it's all true, but time has not been kind to the phone, and using it has made for a pretty rough week, even by my recent standards. 

Like the last three phones on this trip, I also assumed I'd have a fresh set of anecdotes from the experience to share, so that I could tell you all the ways its peculiarities, shortcomings, or strengths impacted my life in a way that was entertaining and informative.

g1

On this fateful day ten years ago, Google, T-Mobile, and HTC joined forces to announce the T-Mobile G1. It would go on to launch internationally as the HTC Dream, but this piece of hardware was the first way consumers could experience the Android platform. The G1 was far from perfect, even by the standards of the day. At the same time, it offered an open, customizable experience in stark contrast to the iPhone.
