Back in late October 2008 a smartphone called the G1 hit T-Mobile, this handset brought Google’s Android mobile operating to the mainstream, however we are now hearing that the G1 is no more.
Engadget are reporting that T-Mobile USA, Amazon and other retailers no longer offer the G1, it is unsurprising given the massive growth we have seen in Android smartphones, however the G1 in my opinion should go down as a smartphone that changed the market in a great way.
Obviously the G1 wasn’t perfect, however it paved the way for future Android smartphones, who would have thought that two years on Android-based devices were arguably the iPhone’s biggest competitor?
Are you still using the G1? If so, how is it coping in today’s social media-centric world?
