October 24th, 2008

Well, thankfully that didn’t take long. San Francisco’s web communications company ‘iSkoot’ are the first provider to offer a VoIP for T-Mobiles G1 Phone.

BUSINESS APPS FOR THE G1 PHONE

October 24th, 2008

There have been some negative talk about the G1 Phone not being equipped for business users but some clever people at CompanionLink Software have grasped the whole open source idea for the G1 Phone which runs Google’s Android mobile operating system. They have developed a two-way synchronization solution for Microsoft Outlook and Google Android devices.

To get Microsoft Outlook contacts on their Google Android phone, users will need CompanionLink for Google Android. In addition to contacts, the software also synchronizes Microsoft Outlook calendar events, recurring appointments, tasks, and alarms and reminders with Google Android phones. The synchronization of data with the phones occurs wirelessly without any user intervention.

The app isn’t available on Google’s Android Market, but CompanionLink for Google Android is available from the company’s website for $29.95. More information about the solution can be found at companionlink.com/android.

Well done guys.

G1 PHONE MYSPACE APP

October 23rd, 2008

The phone that’s built for the internet, every time I write a new article about a G1 Phone app I think I’m going to start it with that sentence, I just hope people understand how mobile apps are going to change the mobile phone experience.

My first apps article for the G1 Phone is dedicated to mobile social networking and who other than MySpace to be the first to unveil an app that allows you to stay connected. Available through the Google’s Android Market. The killer app allows G1 Phone users to do anything that they would normally do from their own pc’s including upload pictures which have been taken by there own G1 Phone.

It looks like Facebook lovers will have to wait, let just hope that they bring something out by the time it hits the UK market on the 30th October.

T-MOBILE G1 PHONE LAUNCHED IN AMERICA

October 22nd, 2008

ARRRGGHHH! This is the bit where we spit our dummies out (if there are any Americans reading this, we’re refering to pacifiers!). Why are we always second in line? I can only relate the way I’m feeling as to standing in the cold and looking through a window at a family laughing and joking whilst they eat a big roast dinner!

Anyway… San Francisco was the first location to start selling the T-Mobile G1 Phone with Google’s Android mobile operating system. The G1 Phone is currently only available in the 95 cities that have T-Mobile’s 3G service. The suggested retail price is $399.99, but don’t don’t panic, not that you should your probably British and waiting like the rest of the world, there is an instant discount of -$220 making the final cost of the G1 phone $179, with obvious price plan attached. If you are lucky enough to be elegible for one you must hurry it does state on the G1 Phone website that there is an ’extremely limited supply’.

So I’m afraid there’s not much more to say other than, chin up, chest out and keep on marching and we’ll be home in time for tea! Roll on 30th October – 8 days to go!

Oh, and don’t forget we get our G1 Phones for FREE!

G1 PHONE ADVERTISING

October 21st, 2008

It’s coming – or at least thats what it says on the new G1 phone advert that was released this weekend. It was only by chance that one of the guys at Android News managed to spot the new T-Mobile G1 with Google phone ad on page 37 of the ‘News of the World’.

The ad which measures 150mm wide x 250mm places the main headline, subhead and image of the G1 phone in a rectangular box with rounded corners and placed toward the bottom right of the advert itself. The lower half of the box carries T-Mobile’s trademark magenta colour. The headline states ‘It’s coming’ with the subtitle ‘T-Mobile G1 with Google’. ‘Available from 30/10/08′. Most of the ad is taken up by an image, this particular image is of two middle aged men standing on a hill just above a crowd of people. Everyone is looking out across a busy harbour. There is a large katamaran and cruise ship in view and directly above is a large super imposed Google Maps pin. Our guess is that we could be seeing a lot more of these ads showing different locations and scenarios. Watch this space.
