Android Around the World: Italy Gets G1
Next stop on the G1 world tour – Italy!Â Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM) is the latest carrier to offer the Android handset commonly referred to as the G1.Â Since that name belongs to T-Mobile, they took a cue from HTC’s code name for the device and called it something you might be familiar with.Known simply as “Dream”, the phone is available now for customers in much the same way as the rest of the world -You can sign up to a contract and get it for free or you can spend â‚¬429 (roughly $540 US dollars) and get it prepaid.
We already know that free G1’s on contract are appealing, but does dropping $540 to get it prepaid sound good to anyone?
