T-Mobile to Unveil Its Google Phone

T-Mobile-G1-gPhone.jpgWord is T-Mobile today will unveil its new mobile phone, called G1, that uses Google’s operating system called Android.

PC World mag speculates the phone will include free Gmail from Google. Update: Indeed, TmoNews says it’s confirmed the phone comes with Gmail, YouTube, Calendar and Google Talk. Memory is expandable up to 8 gigs.

Analysts predict the Google phone will unlikely match last year’s debut of Apple’s iPhone.

“I doubt that anything can match the hoopla that has been created by Apple,” IDC analyst Shiv Bakhshi told Bloomberg News.

ClickZ’s Enid Burns will be reporting on this development today at IAB’s Mixx conference today. Look for more coverage — and what this means for advertisers.
