Today marks the end of an era for Android. The HTC made T-Mobile G1 is no longer available from T-Mobile’s online store. Compared to today’s lineup for Android phones, the G1’s 528 MHz processor, 3.2 inch display, and Android 1.6 OS seem outdated and obsolete. With new phones like the HTC G1 Blaze set to replace the original, it was only a matter of time before T-Mobile decided to pull the plug on the G1. But let’s not forget that the G1 is the phone responsible for kicking off the Android revolution and lighting a spark in the hearts on the Android modding community.
The G1 was the first smartphone to actually rival the iPhone’s functionality, giving customers the option of an open OS. Nearly two years later, the G1 has proven to the world that an open OS is what the public really wants.
We’re pretty sure that most of you have owned a G1 at some point or another. Many of you have called it “the little phone that could” while others have complained about the phones low memory and abysmal performance. Feel free to share your thoughts, complaints, or favorite memories about your G1.
