by Reads (6,055)

The replacement for the T-Mobile G1 has been announced, and this carrier is apparently trying to clear out its remaining stock by dropping the cost of this Android-based smartphone.

T-Mobile G1

This device originally debuted last year at $180, and this summer dropped to $150. It is now selling for $130.

It’s Got Company
The G1 was the very first smartphone running Android, but T-Mobile recently introduced the myTouch 3G. More importantly, last week it unveiled the Motorola Cliq, which will replace the G1 in this carrier’s lineup.

In addition, Android-based models will soon be released by Sprint and Verizon.

Still, T-Mobile has said it is committed to introducing future software updates for the G1, so it won’t immediately become obsolete.

An Overview of the T-Mobile G1
The T-Mobile G1 is a consumer-oriented smartphone with a 3.2-inch HVGA touchscreen, a QWERTY keyboard, GPS, and Wi-Fi. It also sports a microSD card slot and a 3.2 megapixel camera.

There is also a rapidly growing collection of third-party software available.

To get the $130 price requires a two-year contract, and ordering the T-Mobile G1 from this carrier’s website.
