The T-Mobile G1, the very first phone featuring Google's open source Android operating system, has hit stories today.
Reports suggest a less enthusiastic turnout than for Apple's latest iPhone, although a couple dozen people were lined up on Oxford Street in the cold, early hours of the morning to get their hands on the G1. Techradar reported a queue of about 25 people at the flagship T-Mobile shop in London for the 5:30am opening.
The handset itself is an HTC model which is similar to one running Windows Mobile. The phone is available free on plans from T-Mobile starting from 40 a month.
Earlier this week, HTC said it expected to sell some 600,000 of the devices.
