G1 Data Always Connected = Roaming $$$ | Android Central

hm, das macht das Android Betriebssystem noch uninteressanter als es eh schon war (für mich primär wegen fehlendem Outlook Sync). Schade, denn hier wäre ein bezahlbares (Preis ist in AUS$) Android Phone ohne Kamera: http://www.kogan.com.au/shop/android-powered-kogan-agora-3G-mobile-phone/

Some hapless soul traveling to the UK with his G1 reports a data roaming bill of $102.85 in spite of jumping into the phone settings and disabling data sync, data roaming and 3G. When pressed, the T-Mobile supervisor “revealed that the G1 always accesses the internet whether you are sending text messages or calls—even when the data roaming features are off.” Scary stuff if true.

Read the whole article by Sean Fallon of Gizmodo here. Has anyone else racked up any data roaming charges while traveling abroad with a G1? If so, tell us your tale in Comments. A special thanks to James for sharing his experience!

T-Mobile G1 first hands-on (updated) – Engadget

Ein Hands on auf Android, eines der neusten Smartphones, natürlich wieder mit Kamera.

Yep — there it is. We finally, finally got our mitts all over the very first Android device, the T-Mobile G1 — hanging out in the crowd, waiting for the official announce, naturally — and so far we like what we see.

Don’t forget, T-Mobile and Google unveil the first Android phone tomorrow! – Engadget

Tja, mit einem Seufzen werde ich mir das wohl ansehen… Andererseits hat das Teil nicht mal Stereo Bluetooth, und das nutze ich recht häufig. Bleibt also nur eines der vielen anderen für mich nicht nutzbaren Smartphones, haha…

Just a reminder, we’re going to be at the Android and T-Mobile event tomorrow morning, so be sure and set your alarms. You can (finally) expect the big unveil of the first commercially available Android device (we don’t want to ruin it, but it’s going to be the G1 — or Dream as we used to call it). We wanted to give you another heads up so you’ll know where and when it’s going down. Pertinent info below.
