More PAX pix for you


An anonymous tipster has confirmed that a major T-Mobile press conference is scheduled for October 23 in LA or NYC in anticipation of a full G1 launch. That’s right, folks: the Android phone is coming. To recap, the G1 is a rebadged HTC Dream from T-Mobile. We have full coverage here but we know the following:

First off, that “chin” that’s got everyone talking is allegedly called a “kicktail” and the slide mechanism is considered an “arc slider screen“. How that works isn’t clear yet, but we want to see it in action.
