The T-Mobile G1 is launching in the UK this week and Google is promoting the handset in the most valuable piece of advertising space in the world – a text link right in the middle of the Google homepage.

The link points to this page which directs you straight through to the T-Mobile landing page where you can buy the phone (free on a £40 contract).

T-Mobile G1

Is this phone as good as the iPhone? I very much doubt it. The iPhone is on version 2 already so they are going to be way ahead for the next year at least.

More details about the G1:

The T-Mobile G1 doesn’t just have one navigation option but three: QWERTY keyboard, 3 inch touchscreen or track ball – you decide!

Don’t get left behind; never miss an email, IM or Facebook update – the T-Mobile G1 is always online and synched up.

Take this beauty with you everywhere and do anything online: watch YouTubeâ„¢, search on Googleâ„¢, check train times, shop online or check your emails…

It’s pre-loaded with Google Mapsâ„¢, Google Mailâ„¢, Google Talkâ„¢ and GPS – plus a world of possibilities from Android Marketâ„¢.
