While Palm wasn't afraid to add multi-touch support to the Palm Pre, some have theorized the reason we haven't seen that feature added to Windows Mobile or Android is caution over possible litigation. But the openness of Android gives developers an edge over more closed platforms, and one enterprising developer has added multi-touch to the T-Mobile G1.In fact, people have been saying for months that both Android and the T-Mobile G1 hardware have low-level support for multi-touch. And while this isn't the someone has demo'ed multi-touch on the G1, you can actually enable it yourself on your own G1.However, as Luke Hutchison says, this is proof-of-concept. And, quite honestly, you'll likely void... Read more...
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... Read more...
According to a report by Korea’s ETNews, Samsung is set to release its first Google Android-enabled phone for North America by the second quarter of 2009.

Pre-sale demand for the T-Mobile Android G1 is so high that according to T-Mobile, they have sold out all their units. While we don't know exactly what the number of units is, which makes it hard to just just how impressive this may or may not be, according to T-Mobile, this happened after they tripled their original factory order. Sorry to say, this means if you hope to be one of the ones who gets his T-Mobile G1 on the first day --- and you haven't ordered yet --- you're out of luck. However, you can still get into "round 2" of the pre-orders, according to their site. T-Mobile customers can get a T-Mobile G1 starting at $179.99, plus taxes and fees (pricing subject to upgrade eligibility criteria:... Read more...

If you live in Germany or plan on moving there soon, you're going to want to kiss German Vodafone CEO Friedrich Joussen when you're there.  He and his company just obtained a court order that forces rival, T-Mobile, to sell iPhones without contract to those that want it.“For its part, Vodafone -- which at one time was in the running for its own exclusive contract to sell iPhone to parts of Europe -- claims that it took the matter to court out of fears that other handset makers may follow Apple's example and begin tying their handsets to specific providers, further shredding the German wireless market.Vodafone Germany chief executive Friedrich Joussen in a statement said his firm's goal is...

Contracts with the carriers and Apple were signed in the last few days.  Of particular interest, however, is that the contract requires the carriers to give Apple 10% of iPhone revenues derived from phone and data calls.  This is something the carriers have strongly resisted in the past, and shows just how much they wanted the latest must-have Apple gadget. The contracts with T-Mobile of Germany, Orange of France and O{2 }in the UK were signed in recent days, according to these sources. T-Mobile, Orange and O2 declined to comment. "These are not negotiations among equals. Apple clearly had the upper hand," one industry expert told FT Deutschland. The deals mark... Read more...
