About time they let the 3 month old cat out of the bag
Good news for TMO users.
Price is the big question....availability the next biggest.
Google announces Android press conference for January 5th -- Engadget
Topolski says that google will hold their press conf on jan 5th in mtn. view
Does ne1 have any clue how this invite thing for the phone may work. I read that developers/press first, then what?
in my opinion wouldn't it make sense to just mass release and put a hurting on apple on T-mo's spectrum
hopefully it is just a mass release and that its actually released to public on Jan 5th, and not just announced.
Pretty sure this is just an announcement, likely with full disclosure of specs/pricing/release.
Not to hate on TMo users, but I hope this is just a "testing of the waters" and "loyalty" thing to go TMo first (since they were the first to bring Android) and they actually get this thing on to some real (jk ) carriers soon, like Verizon.....
i hope since its coming to tmobile that we get some sort of deal on the price. if the rumored 199 is true with no contract renewal , im in. if its 199 with a new 2 year or 500 without. then im assed out
Anyone remember if it was google that did the G1 annoucement, or if it was Tmobile....can't seem to remember. Well hope they will announce multiple versions of this phone.
Doesnt Apple typically announce something..and finish by saying "oh..and its available NOW".
If Google doesnt do the same , many will be annoyed.
if i remember correctly it was a joint conference.. both reps were there. correct me if im wrong
Not having followed new phone announcements in the past, is there a typical timeframe from the announcement date to the retail sale date of the phone or does it vary from phone to phone?
My contract with sprint is up next week and I want to get this phone, but wondering if it will be this month or still be a few months.
Either way (immediately or in a few months) DON'T renew your contract with Sprint, LOL.
If you are new to (and will continue to) following phone releases, you will be very disappointed when your waiting, and waiting, and waiting, for Sprint to finally get that hot new phone.
To answer your question though: It varies. As it was said, Apple can do it immediately. But since this is Google doing the release, WHO KNOWS? Optomistic though that it will be sooner than later since peeps have already had the phone for a month+
Thanks, I kind figured that would be the answer. I WILL NOT be renewing my contract with Sprint. I was looking at the Droid (and the Iphone), but after finding the leaks about the Google Phone and the HTC Passion, etc., I am more interested in the new phones, but I also don't want to just wait and wait for the next new thing to come. I want to enjoy a new phone at some point. (I've had a BB Pearl for 2 years now)
im wondering if this is by invite, would someone with all of googles services have a better shot at an invite than someone who doesnt. like would joe shmo have a better shot if he has google wave, voice, gmail, etc than say sho joe who only has only gmail?
Invites seem to only be going to the media such as engadget, BGR, Gizmodo etc. I dont think regular joes get invited

Welcome to 6 hours ago. There's already a thread about this.
*EDIT* Referring to the previous post before it got moved to this thread.
at this point all im waiting for is a price
Makes me wonder about the rumored price of $199. I'm thinking either it is really that cheap because of the info Google could get/ads used, or could be they are subsidizing it and still requiring a contract under T-mobile like Apple does selling the iPhone directly from Apple stores... or that the rumored price is just wrong haha.
That was a T-Mobile sponsored event (invites went out from them) held in NYC with Google and HTC execs on hand taking part in the event.
Official: T-Mobile Android phone launches September 23rd at 10:30am in New York City:
Been a lurker here for a while, waiting on info about the Passion/Bravo/Incredible, but thought I'd post this since I haven't seen it anywhere yet.
According to this Gizmodo post, it'll be $530 unsubsidized and $180 on 2 year contract with T-Mobile.
