T-Mobile lifts Googlephone bandwidth cap

After announcing a meagre, Euro-style 1GB monthly cap on the G1's bandwidth, there was much gnashing of keys over what would surely limit the Android-running phones' utility on T-Mobile's 3G networks. The New York Times reports a change of heart:

We removed the 1GB soft limit from our policy statement, and we are confident that T-Mobile G1 customers will enjoy the high speed of data access over our 3G network. The specific terms for our new data plans are still being reviewed and once they are final we will be certain to share this broadly with current customers and potential new customers.

The much-awaited "Googlephone" will hit town in late October and cost $180 with a contract.

  1. Engadget also reported that there will be an extUSB or whatever to 3.5mm jack adapter included, but the first shipment won’t have it. At least HTC/Tmo are listening to the feedback. I have great hopes for this phone, and even bigger hopes for the OS.
