500px-android-logosvg.pngT-Mobile will be the first out of the gate this year with a smartphone running off of the Google Android software.

The first Google Android smartphone is going to be offered by T-Mobile, and is being manufactured by HTC.

The phone, though little details have been revealed, is being seen as a major threat to the Apple iPhone.

It is expected to feature a full touch-screen, as well as a five-row keyboard.

T-Mobile plans for the phone to launch in October. Don’t be surprised if the date is moved earlier as it is heavily rumored that both T-Mobile and Google are anxiously expediting the launch.

How capable Usenet access or Newsgroup viewing  is on the Android device is still to be determined
