T-Mobile G1 Still Kicks: First Android Phone Spotted on TV Show

Remember the T-Mobile G1? Three and a half years ago, the first Android phone was released and it has spawned all the craziness surrounding this OS. It generated dual screen devices, convertible tablets, quad core handsets and tablets and more goodies like these. Well, the G1 is still not dead, as it was recently spotted on the ABC TV show Missing.

We’ve seen many releases of Android till now, like Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich. Soon it will be the turn of Android 5.0 Jelly Bean to shine and I wonder if we’re ready for that… since it’s supposedly an OS crafted more for tablets and netbooks than phones. Anyway, back to the G1, that was a fantastic device, with a very original design and a great keyboard. I’m nostalgic when I see that 17.1mm thick device with QWERTY keyboard, 3.2 inch 320 x 480 pixel display and its pretty trackball and 3.15MP camera.

The handset had a 528 MHz ARM11 CPU inside and today we’re playing with quad core 1.5 GHz phones. Can you believe it? Imagine what the world will look like in 10 years…
