HTC G1 continues its world tour: next stop Australia -
Until now, the HTC made G1 has been a T-Mobile exclusive. But things are about to change next week with the launch of the G1 in Australia. Optus (owned by SingTel), is planning on making the G1 available to the people of Australia on February 16. Optus’ G1 cell plans will be starting at $59 a month, but from what we have gathered, there’s still not official price for the HTC handset. Similar to other countries, the G1 is the first Android powered handset to reach the Australian shores. SingTel, being the larges service provider in Singapore, already has plans in the works to deliver the G1 to their home market within the near future, but has declined to give any specifics on the G1’s first official launch in Asia.
