UPDATE FIXES PROBLEMS OF UNLOCKED G1 ANDROID DEVELOPER PHONE

 

We've told you about the unlocked T-Mobile G1 with Google Android for developers being barred from accessing paid applications because of piracy concerns. Well, it appears that Google has toned down its stance on Android paid apps access and released a new 1.1 update that fixes most of the problems on the unlocked T-Mobile G1 with Google Android for developers.

GOOGLE BANS UNLOCKED DEVELOPER G1 FROM ACCESSING PAID APPS

 

I'm afraid we have some bad news for those who have purchased the $400 unlocked developer T-Mobile G1. According to the folks at MacWorld, Google has disallowed unlocked developer T-Mobile G1 handsets from accessing paid Marketplace apps due to piracy concerns. Apparently, unlocked dev phones can open the private, hidden apps folder that contain paid content. This ability can allow unlocked developer T-Mobile G1 handsets owners to copy and redistribute apps.

BE AWARE: THE G1 REALLY IS ALWAYS CONNECTED
