Google makes the Android software and has updated it

A fresh upgrade for Google's Android software means users of the T-Mobile G1 handset can access more games and applications.

For those who want to recycle their mobile phone and pick up a better model, the G1 may be worth checking out.

With the Android upgrade, there will be improved functionality and better choice for consumers, the network said.

"For a T-Mobile G1 customer this means more choice and some very exciting ideas coming to life from all over the world," added Richard Warmsley, head of internet and entertainment.

Handset users will be able to download certain apps for free, while others require payment.

One such game is Guitar Hero World Tour Mobile, which involves the phone's touchscreen activating different notes on a guitar as players strum along to classic rock tracks.

T-Mobile has two price plans available for those who want to get their mitts on the G1.

For consumers who want to take advantage of the network's mobile broadband offerings, they might want to know that a YouGov survey recently named T-Mobile's service as the best value for money on the market.
