The T Mobile G1 went on sale in the UK today, prompting a queue of gadget enthusiasts outside T Mobile's Central London store. Queues began at 5 00 am at T Mobile's Oxford Street store which opened early to allow shoppers to get their hands on the Android based phone.
Andy Burgess, an office worker from Farringdon, London, was the first to emerge from T-Mobile's Oxford Street store with a T-Mobile G1. He said: "Being the first person in the UK to own this mobile phone is amazing - I'm going to be popular at work! I've been waiting for this phone for months and I knew I had to be the first to own it."
Jim Hyde, CEO, T-Mobile UK said: "With the richest web experience ever seen on a mobile and thanks to the Android Market, the unprecedented ability to make your mobile work just the way you want, the T-Mobile G1 is set to revolutionise the way we use our phones. And judging by early reports coming in from our stores today, people are enthusiastically embracing this revolution and signing up for the T-Mobile G1."
The T-Mobile G1 is available for free on T-Mobile Combi and Flext price plans from £40 (US$64) per month, including unlimited mobile internet browsing.
