Android Guys published an image of the Google/Android phone that T-Mobile is supposed to release. Code named the G1, here’s how it looks:

Judge for yourself. I think its positively ugly. If they are intending to take on the iPhone with this thing, they got to be joking. The keyboard hidden under the display like some of the present phones, is really something of an acquired taste. And way too many buttons.

The site had an article that spells out the specs for the Android phone. Take a look(verbatim from the article):

  • 528Mhz Qualcomm 7201 processor
