T Mobile G1 “GooglePhone”

The iPhone has dominated the smartphone landscape for more than a year. But now, Apple is about to meet a challenger in Google that could halt — or slow — its progress.

The T-Mobile G1 is the first smartphone to use the Android platform announced last year by Google and a number of other partners. Based on Linux, Android is an open source project that has hundreds of developers who work on different applications any phone utilizing Android can use.

T-Mobile and Google have partnered to bring us the Andriod handset, but the G1 integrates Google's online services into the operation of the handset, which will probably pose a direct challenge to both Windows Smartphones and the Apple iPhone.The G1 is being made by HTC, who has a long history in the market of Windows Mobile devices and has had partnerships with T-Mobile and several other carriers.

The G1 is very similar to a typical Windows smartphone in terms of specification - there’s a large 3.2″ 320 x 480 pixel touchscreen display, a 3.2 megapixel fixed-focus camera, 3G and 3.5G support, WiFi, GPS (plus a digital compass), microSD expandable memory, Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity.

The main functions are controlled with a trackball (a little like modern BlackBerry devices), plus there’s a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Annoyingly, the T-Mobile G1 has one of HTC’s combined USB/audio sockets which means that you cannot use a standard headset without an adaptor. It’s quite a heavy device at 158 grams.

The processing power of the G1 clocks in at 528Mhz and features a Qualcomm MSM7201A which has 192MB of RAM. This specification is very similar to HTC’s other Windows devices.

The G1 also support GPRS and EDGE data, and has both 802.11 b and g WiFi. The expected maximum talk time on 3G is around the 6 hour mark and has a whopping 16 day stand by time, partly due to the large 1150 mAh battery.

Besides, BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220 also includes multimedia player plus of course the messaging and personal information management tools that BlackBerry devices are famous for.As part of the Pearl series, you get the SureType keyboard (groan) and trackball navigator.

Rainbow Range of VF527

Vodafone UK has brought a range of rainbow colours for the fashion conscious to its VF 527 phone. Previously only available in black, the VF 527 now comes in four fun fresh colours: Moss Green, Mandarin Orange, Aqua Blue and Pink.
The GPRS candybar VF 527 is exclusive to Vodafone and comes with a built-in camera, FM radio, MP3 player, Bluetooth while the handset sports an external memory card slot to increase storage space for all your media content.

According to Head of Device Management for Vodafone UK, Chris Edwards, they have introduced the Rainbow range after the successful launch of the VF 527 in black and believe that the new colours will appeal to those fashion conscious customers who want a low cost handset that compliments their individual style but is not compromised on features. This phone delivers all that and at £30 is another great value mobile from Vodafone.
