The Google Phone

What is the GPhone? This is an Android phone by the Googly software supporting the platform. That software, and the apps which were demo’d at the last Google press conference, are indeed innovative even and it has finally arrived – the G1. Actually the Google Phone is not really a Google-manufactured phone. It’s one of those HTC slider phone which is powered by of course Google’s Android mobile phone.

The G1 features include a 3.17-inch 65K color touchscreen with HVGA (480×320) resolution, that gives out 5 hours talk time and 130 hours of standby time, a 3.1 megapixel camera, that comes with with a 1GB microSD card supported up to 16GB, expectedly GPS via Google Maps, a GSM/GPRS/EDGE/Wi-Fi and UMTS/HSDPA 850/900/1700/1900/2100 MHz and the Amazon MP3 store for music downloading functionality as well.

Also it has YouTube as one of its preloaded apps, aside from Shop Savvy, a comparative shopping app, Ecorio which is an app for monitoring your carbon footprint, and BreadCrumbz for creating a step-by-step visual map using photos.
