Android and its first purchasable product, the T-Mobile G1, celebrate their 8th birthdays • Android Police
Richard Gao:
<p>Eight years - that's how long Android has been available to the public for. September 23rd, 2008 marked two huge events in Android's history: T-Mobile's release of the G1, the first Android device available to the masses, and Google's release of the Android 1.0 SDK. Happy birthday, Android!

The T-Mobile G1, also known as the HTC Dream and Android Dev Phone 1, was the first Android device that the public could actually purchase. Reading through T-Mobile's press release is pretty hilarious; things like touchscreen functionality, 3G, Gmail, and the Android Market seemed so futuristic back then, but pretty much every Android device has them now. We don't have full QWERTY keyboards anymore, though.

Equally hilarious is the G1's spec sheet - this chunky device sported a 3.2-inch 320p display, a 528MHz Qualcomm chip, 192MB of RAM, 256MB of internal storage, and a 3MP camera. Oh, and there wasn't a headphone jack; remind you of any modern phones?</p>

I usually detest "anniversary journalism" (five years ago today.. seventeen years ago..) but this is one worth marking. Android has transformed the world. You can cavil about whether it took ideas from Apple, but the key point is that it let let OEMs make affordable handsets for billions of people - and made entire new industries possible on a broad front. We're only just beginning to see the benefit of the Shenzhen ecosystem on the wider economy.
