Finally, my HTC G1 Dev Phone running Android OS has arrived!

It could not be shipped directly to Denmark so it had to make a detour via Germany.

The phone arrived in a small plain white box without any branding whatsoever. The box contained:

  • The HTC G1, no branding, but with the specially designed developer battery cover
  • Battery charger. Danish users: an adaptor is needed, see photos
  • Head phones that connect directly to the micro usb port
  • Micro usb to usb cable
  • A quick set up guide

A 1 Gb MicroSD card was already installed in the phone.

After activating 3G service at Telmore (danish mobile phone provider) I was able to sign in and start using the phone.
