G1 in UK by October 30th

While some US customers are expected to get their T-Mobile G1 handsets as soon as this Friday, the UK's population has now been told it will have to wait for the Android smartphone until the end of October, according to a T-Mobile UK announcement. The device us now due October 30th and will cost nothing if users sign up for a 40 (nearly $70) per month Combi or Flext voice and data plan, though the length of the term hasn't been specified.

The plans differ in the amount of talk time and text messaging while offering the same unlimited though confined to fair usage rules web browsing. In addition, Combi gives users 800 minutes of talk time and unlimited text message, with Flext offering 1,250 minutes and 2,500 text messages or a combination of either. UK buyers will get a choice of white or black G1 handsets, going without the brown of the US edition.

The UK's G1 will have the same specs as the US-bound phone, namely built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS sensor and 3G data network access, as well as a 3-megapixel camera and QWERTY keyboard in addition to touchscreen functionality. Its most unique feature, however, remains the Android operating system developed by Google. [via Reghardware]
