On September 23, 2008, the mobile industry was changed forever as Google and T-Mobile introduced the T-Mobile G1, the world’s first Android-based smartphone. By the end of 2010, Android became the world’s leading smartphone platform.

We’ll give out 200 Knowledge Points to anyone who knows the ‘nickname’ of the T-Mobile G1.
