The phone is the first to use Google's operating system Android, which the company hopes to make open-source.
The handset has a 3.2 inch touch screen and slide-out qwerty keyboard. It also incorporates a compass, which together with a motion sensor allows users to navigate Google Maps by turning the phone.

The device has been developed for production by HTC and is now offered by T-mobile as the G1.
