ABSTRACT
The article explores concerns regarding T-Mobile G1, also known as the Google phone. The phone is facing critical tests for its performance on T-Mobile's third-generation (3G) network and the robustness of Android, the phone's operating system. One basic concern is that T-Mobile's high-speed 3G coverage is limited to 95 U.S. cities, which is roughly a third of the reach of its major rivals AT&T and Verizon Wireless. It presents an overview of the early problems that G1 users may encounter.
