G1 Now Available In All T-Mobile USA Stores

The HTC-built G1 has been a huge hit for T-Mobile here in America, but up until now, it hasn't been sold in retail locations that weren't situated in areas blanketed with 3G coverage. Starting this weekend, anyone within range of a T-Mobile USA store or partner location can find the Android-powered cellphone.

It has been possible for those in EDGE (2G) areas to order the mobile phone through the carrier's website for months, but unless you traveled any great distance to see one in person, you were taking a substantial risk by diving into a two-year agreement without any deep understanding of the device and its operating system. We're told that all three colors (white, bronze and black) should be available, and it will cost the same $179.99 on contract even for those that can't take advantage of 3G speeds in their hometown.
