T-Mobile sets €122 price tag on Google phone

Wireless carrier T-Mobile says the first mobile phone running Google's software will cost €122 (US$179) with a two-year contract when it goes on sale in the US on October 22, an Associated Press report said.

T-Mobile said it will start selling the G1 phone in Britain in November, and other European countries early next year, the report said.

As expected, the phone looks something like Apple's iPhone, and has a large touch screen. But it complements the screen with a trackball and a slide-out keyboard. It comes integrated with Google applications like Gmail and Google Maps.
