Upgrading my G1

I remember waiting for what seemed like an eternity to purchase a Linux based cell phone. I was stuck on T-Mobile's network with the T-Mobile Wing which, for it's time, was a decent Window's based cell phone.

When the G1, the first Android based cell phone hit the market, I was one of the first to pre-order the phone. Not only did it have a keyboard, but it was Linux based and built upon an open source operating system called Android.

Turn by turn directions comes to the G1

The update of Google Maps today brings Google Navigation Beta! This update provides turn by turn, spoken directions using GPS and integrates street view. =)

Google Maps Navigation for Android

With the new release of Android 2.0, deployable to handsets next month, comes Google Maps Navigation. This is a very exciting update to Android and, aside from Google Docs integration, is one of the most needed features for the Android OS.

My thoughts on the T-Mobile G1

I have owned the T-Mobile G1 since October. I had been looking for a replacement for the T-Mobile Wing for some time, and being a fan of open source and Linux, I was very excited to read about Android (even exploring Android development using their SDK), and even more excited to learn T-Mobile had the initial offering of an Android based cell phone.
