I ask that slightly rhetorical question as I’ve seen very little online buzz for this mobile device – more formally known as the T-Mobile G1 – which launches in the UK today, either in the mainstream media or in blogs.
Even T-Mobile’s UK website doesn’t highlight the phone in a way I would have expected on launch day, instead still talking about it as “coming soon.”
To give you the bottom-line view straightaway – this phone is a joy to use (as the photo might suggest) and the one mobile device that could sway me to be wholly email-connected at all times, thus convincing me to change a long-practiced behaviour.
I have a video review I made with some detailed commentary and opinion about my Googlephone experience, in which I talk through many of the phone’s features. I’ll have that review posted on my tech blog as soon as I get a minute to edit it, hopefully at the weekend.
