Google Android Dev 1

Developers and other interested parties located outside of the USA and UK can now get their hands on what is, effectively, an unlocked T-Mobile G1 - direct from Google. Google is now selling what it calls the Android Dev 1, an HTC Dream based device that has neither SIM lock nor bootloader lock, which means that not only can it be used with any SIM card, but it can be used with custom builds of the Android OS as well.

The device is available to registered Google Android Developers for US$399, the same price that the T-Mobile G1 is supposed to be available for without a contract. Becoming an official Android developer costs $25 but it otherwise open to all.

The phone itself can be ordered by people in the following countries: USA, UK, Germany, Japan, India, Canada, France, Taiwan, Spain, Australia, Singapore, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Poland, and Hungary. Its features the exact same specs as the T-Mobile G1, but has a received some new graphics on its rear cover. [via AndroidAuthority.com]
