If you’re anything like us, you’re probably fighting a bit of a drinking problem and a debilitating gadget addiction waiting in hand-wringing anticipation for T-Mobile to go live with the first-ever Android-powered smartphone – the T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream). T-Mobile made their T-Mobile G1 announcement not too long ago, but it seems like an eternity until the carrier actually launches the Android-powered G1 in the US. And, as great as they are at keeping us distracted until launch-day, T-Mobile G1 (and HTC Dream) pictures and videos get tired real fast.
So, it’s a good thing T-Mobile saw fit to give Android-hopefuls something a little more tangible to hold them over until October 22. T-Mobile has just posted a T-Mobile G1 emulator on a dedicated T-Mobile G1 web portal. After taking a 360 degree tour of the HTC-sourced T-Mobile G1, the online emulator gives you a sneak peak at the G1’s Android interface and navigation controls.
Granted, you won’t be able to actually make calls or send emails, but the T-Mobile G1 emulator should help you familiarize yourself with Android and the G1’s controls well ahead of the handset’s launch later this month. Find the T-Mobile G1 online emulator here.
