This is a hard article for me to write! I feel like I am saying goodbye to a good friend, a comrade in arms, a companion that has been with me through thick and thin. I remember the first time I saw the image to the left, and got really excited about the future of smartphones, and the fact that I finally would have an alternative to the iPhone.
The G1, is no more. Meaning, T-Mo has stopped listing and selling the unit officially on their site. Of course, there are still plenty out there you can get your hands on if you really wanted to, but the life cycle of the G1 has officially come to an end.
The G1 was a ground breaking device, the first to really challenge the iPhone’s dominance of the market, and the handset that gave birth to sites like our own.
The G1 is gone, a moment of silence needs to be observed as a piece of our history moves on. We will always remember you.
