G1 Appears Momentarily on T-Mobile.com


So all the curious name speculaters – including me – can now be pretty confident that the innaugural Android handset will be called the G1. A link to the G1 appeared momentarily on the T-Mobile website and linked to T-MobileG1.com… surely a sign of whats to come.

Here is a screen shot from Engadget – the link was down by the time I got there:

It’s coming…. It’s coming…

Imagine if they stood on stage in New York City and just before the announcement:

“There is no HTC and there is no G1. The first Android device is actually a calculator watch that does not make phone calls.” That would be pretty funny in a devastating, almost morbid kind of way. Ha! I guess its just the excitement of 1 year waiting… I almost WANT there to be a crazy plot line that we couldn’t expect. Nothing like the above, obviously, but it would be kind of funny. Kind of like a Truman Show sort of evil humor.

Sorry for Non-Americans that don’t get these references. All you need to know is that the T-Mobile G1 is being tested on the T-Mobile website. Time to put T-MobileG1.com on autorefresh!
