What you see below are the alleged images of what could be the next gen T-Mobile Android phone. What you can see is that compared to the T-Mobile G1 its got no QWERTY keyboard which would be abit of worry for me even though the Google Android platform now supports on screen keyboard.
This is not the mythical G2 as in T-Mobile’s G1 successor. This is G2 as in the second Google Android phone to hit the market. Kogan’s Agora and Agora Pro run Android and are set to ship at the end of this month. Continue reading »

So it is possible after all. Luke Hutch has figured a more ‘simpler’ way to get a full working multitouch on the T-mobile G1. He has published a video to prove its not a joke and also a list of instructions for keen developers.
… he has figured out a way to demonstrate full working multitouch on a stock T-Mobile G1, and he even provides the video to prove it and a list of instructions for developers to follow suit.
Check out the demonstration video below, it ran smoothly and responsively, I’m sure all Android / G1 fans will be wanting to have this on your phones after you’ve seen it:
As expected from the news we heard via the iPhone Dev Team’s blog last week, one of the team member MuscleNerd demonstrated live today their iPhone 3G unlock tool ‘yellowsn0w’. MuscleNerd first showed that his iPhone 3G was running AT&T, then after running the tool, his iPhone was able to recognise and get a signal through his T-Mobile sim.

This isn’t something that myself as an iPhone user is particularly excited about, but it seems a new update for the T-Mobile G1 will soon give its users the ability to type texts (possibly emails and more?) on its screen instead of having to spring out the full keyboard from underneath just to type ‘Hi’.
Does mobile bullying exist? Apparently so and especially here in the UK, it seems all sorts of bullying occur just right under our nose. That’s why T-Mobile UK, TimeBank and Diana Award have joined forces to support TxtUp (based in the UK), a relatively new site which has been created to provide tips to teens on how to fight against online and mobile bullying.
The idea for TxtUp Stand Up came from a group of young people (aged 16-21) that were invited by T-Mobile and TimeBank to come up with ways that mobiles could be used to raise awareness of bullying or help people that are being bullied. T-Mobile’s employees volunteered their time and know-how in communications and mobile networking. TxtUp Stand Up is about the positive actions that you can take and is a way of sharing tips with others that may be in the same situation.
Young participants gave their input all the way through and came up with the TxtUp StandUp name. Participants from TimeBank’s youth projects provided the initial content for the site and tips.

The default web browser that powers the T-Mobile G1 isn’t a poorly designed browser. As you will know the G1’s touchscreen has some highly competitive features and makes navigating web-pages almost as smooth and as easy as with the iPhone Safari browser.
However, this hasn’t stopped Opera from barging in. Following on word that Opera was working to port their proxy-server-assisted Opera Mini browser to the Android platform, the folks have now finally launched their browser alternative through the Android Market. Opera Mini 4.2 beta for Android is now available for download and brings with it the usual fare – proxy-server parsed web surfing, skinning, bookmark sync, full-page view, and more.
Opera Mini 4.2 beta on the Android-powered T-Mobile G1 is everything you’d expect from Opera’s reputation for being a lean, mean web-parsing machine. Web pages load nice and fast. Web pages are processed through Opera’s proxy servers, so that page-rendering times are limited only by Opera’s super-fast servers. The proxy-servers push fully-rendered web-pages faster than any mobile browser tied to a handset’s CPU.
If you don’t mind it being still in beta and want to try it out on your G1, click on the Opera source link below to download it now…
