HTC, Google and T-Mobile Announce Android-Powered Device

Yesterday I posted with details about the ability to obtain MP3 for the Google Android from the Amazon store and today I received an email with the product announcement of the upcoming launch of the T-Mobile G1. I first became interested in the Google Android while looking at options available for my next smartphone upgrade (there are so many options out there now!).  Kudos to their PR team, so I decided to include their press release info if you click "below". Here is a picture for those wanted to see what the phone will look like:

Press Release:
