YouTube gets T Mobile G1 channel
7 January 2009 — 3:56 PM
Those recycling used mobile phones to purchase a new T Mobile G1 have been given a new way to make the most of their new device.
It was announced this week that the network will launch a dedicated channel for the new handset - which is available now on the latest contracts from the carrier - on video sharing community YouTube.
Owners of the Google Android-powered gadget can post video and text responses asking questions or rating the phone - and a number of clips will be posted to help users get to grips with its features.
Commenting on the move, T Mobile's head of online Brendon Cooling said the network was keen to provide a customer service outlet that reflected the success of websites such as Facebook and MySpace.
"This doesn't mean we're moving away from contact centre-led customer service," he added, "but that we're expanding the ways in which our customers can interact efficiently with T Mobile"
Google's Android operating system made its first public appearance on the T Mobile G1 last year.
