T-Mobile G1 hits new markets in the next few weeks: Austria, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany and Poland

T-Mobile G1, the only Android smartphone released until now, is finally making its way to more customers, after being available, for several months, only in the US and the UK.

T-Mobile announced that, starting January 30 2009, the G1 will be launched in Austria, the Netherlands and Czech Republic.

Also, Germany should get the smartphone on February 2, while later that month, the much-discussed device will reach Poland.    


There’s no word yet on the price the handset will have in said countries, but it’s worth mentioning that T-Mobile UK offers it for only 1 GBP, with certain (expensive) data plans and a 2-yr contract agreement. 

Most probably, the G1 will be available across Europe in all of its color versions: black, white and bronze.
