Wednesday 21st January 2009 - 17:17


Various countries on the European continent are in line to get the HTC G1 following its October launch in the UK and US.

T-Mobile is continuing the roll-out of the handset - the first to run Google's Android operating system - with a launch in Germany on 2 February.

That follows the arrival of the touchscreen device in the Netherlands, Czech Republic and Austria before the end of 30 January.

It will also hit Poland sometime in February.

T-Mobile chief executive Hamid Akhavan said the G1 had sold "several hundred thousand" units in the US, where it retails for USD $179 with a two-year contract.

In Germany the phone will sell from USD €1 on a two-year contract.

The Android operating system is expected to appear on a number of smartphones in the next 12 months, having won support from major manufacturers such as Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, Huawei and Motorola.
