g1-hackersDisconnect over at AndBlogs.net has just posted a link to the full T-Mobile G1 Hardware Specs and no… we’re not talking how many megapixels the camera has or what version of Bluetooth is enabled. These specs, ladies and gentlemen, are WAY above my head. To put it in perspective, these are the specs that Google and T-Mobile had when they were deciding what they would and wouldn’t include in the G1.

For example, can you currently do TV Out with your G1? Nope. But did you know that the chip in the G1 DOES allow for TV out and it simply isn’t wired? Now you do. Access to these specs will allow the hacking geniuses of the world (nods to XDA Devs) to enable things like USB-OTG, USB-HOST, TV-OUT, Bootloader Hacks and Radio Hacking.

What does that mean for you? Good question… we don’t know yet. While there are developers with these specs in hand, working on hacking together cool additions and features for their G1s, it isn’t likely you’ll be able to implement them yourself without some nitty gritty work y0urself. It will be interesting to see what comes from this and if any developers want to chime in via comments, have at it because you inherently know the implications of this leak better than myself.

I won’t hotlink and won’t host the file here… gotta show love to AndBlogs for putting this out there. So hit the via link!
