It is out of the box and yeah, you can send email, IM and text with friends on your new T-Mobile G-1. And oh, you can snap a picture or two if you need to and that is good; that is what most standard phones can do. But what can you do on your T-Mobile G1 that will even make your grandma appreciate its technological advancements? What are some of the applications that can be productive or just plain fun to monkey with when you are stuck waiting on your significant other to get ready for your date?
Some of the more productive tools for the T-Mobile G1 are the Financial Calculator, the Bio Wallet, Flashlight Application and a lite version of Skype. The Financial Calculator is more than a calculator that just adds and subtracts. This application is programmed to help you figure out depreciation, loan payments and interest rates. The Bio Wallet is designed to eliminate the need for strong passwords by recognizing the user’s iris. The T-Mobile G1 has utilized the newest technology of biometrics to allow access to your most personal and private information. The Flashlight application illuminates the backlight of your phone to allow it to be used as a flashlight. Very handy if one would drop their keys or need to see in a darkened theater. If you are familiar with Skype than you will be pleased to find a liter version of Skype that can be used with this phone also.
CallACab, Shop Savvy and Cooking Capsules are just a few of the more informative applications for the Mobile-T G1. For the days when traveling in an unfamiliar city, the application CallACab will locate where you are and then display the number for the closest local cab company. Shop Savvy is a helpful money saver application that will scan any UPC barcode and then give the user other prices offered at local stores and from the internet. The Cooking Capsules can help store and create recipes, like any good cookbook. However; it will also locate the closest grocery store to you; in case you are in unfamiliar territory
