T-Mobile snagged the very first Android phone of them all. It wasn't great, even by the standards of the day, but it started a revolution.
Release date: October 2008
CNET Review bottom line: While we're not in love with the design and would have liked some additional features, the real beauty of the T-Mobile G1 is the Google Android platform, as it has the potential to make smartphones more personal and powerful. That said, it's not quite there yet, so for now, the G1 is best suited for early adopters and gadget hounds, rather than consumers and business users.
