Googles Launches Unlocked Android Phone

Android developers will be happy to learn about the new launched today - Android Dev Phone 1. The cell phone is unlocked as far as the SIM card and hardware features, meaning you can use it with any carrier supporting GSM. It fits with the standard HTC style designs, however it comes with a neat fractal graphic on the back and includes a three mega-pixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Quad-band GSM and EDGE for data access. The device is obviously intended for developers. Purchasing it requires a $25 one-time registration as an Android Developer and $399 for the phone. Google does note that support may be limited compared to what T-Mobile offers for their unit and they have a purchase limit of 1 phone per developer.
