    I was thinking of buying an unlocked G1, and I've been looking at various site's prices. They seem to be anywhere from 300-500 which is pretty expensive.

    I found this site (which is chinese btw) called "BangGood" (I know, great name ;) ) that are selling G1s for like 100 bucks unlocked. I'm pretty sure they're not knockoffs, but I want to make sure. The company says they buy them in bulk from the manufacturer at a low price.

    Still though, only 100? Could someone check this out and confirm if the phone is the real thing (specs wise).

    Here's the link: G1 Dream Cell phone smartphone with Google Android - $89.25

    Thanks!

    Poor Knock-off ... Someone else has posted in the forums or on phandroid about this phone ... Dont waste your time or money ... unless you like fake/knock offs..

    Better to buy one under contract from Amazon for $98 see the ads on this forum ...

    Thank you for posting before buying.

    I had the misfortune of seeing one of these things about a month ago. First, always be wary of anything called two distinctly different things; including the "G1 Dream" Second, there is no keyboard. Yeah, that's right, no keyboard. And third; that little trackball you see? Yeah, fake.

    The final tell. Look at picture number four. And then look at this.

    Don't get swindled.

    Thanks guys, everything you pointed out I also noticed and was unsure of.

    Sigh... Looks like I will have to go with eBay or Puremobile.ca.

    Thanks for your help.
