Android G1

Definition - What does Android G1 mean?

The G1 is a mobile phone that is best known for being the first phone to use Google's Android operating system. Designed by HTC Corporation, the G1 featured a full five-row QWERTY keyboard, a 3.2-inch TFT LCD touch screen, a high-speed 3.5G network connection and access to a number of mobile Internet services.

This product is also known as the HTC Dream.

Techopedia explains Android G1

The Android G1 phone features a slider touch screen display with a QWERTY keyboard underneath. Features also include a 3-axis accelerometer, a 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 16 GB microSD slot. The phone runs on a 528 Mhz Qualcomm MSM7201A ARM11 processor.

Because Google played a significant role in the development of the Android platform, the Android G1 features numerous Google applications like Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, Google Calendar and Google Maps.

Android G1 users are able to download applications from the Android Market, an online software application store provided by Google.

The earliest Android G1 units were hackable because users could employ a process known as rooting to flash a modified image with root access. A more legitimate method for hacking on a G1 can be done on the Android Dev Phone 1, a model specially made for developers.
