"At rest, the device is not the most visually appealing smart phone, but the modest countenance masks a powerful and easy-to-use piece of hardware. The device I tested came in a flat black color, but T-Mobile is also offering a bronze unit when the G1 launches, with a white one to come later. The device measures 4.60 by 2.16 by 0.62 inches and weighs a moderate 5.6 ounces.

"As was widely speculated prior, the G1 is not flat. It has a slight bend near the bottom of the phone (some have dubbed the G1 "the banana phone"), but I found the curve to be less pronounced than anticipated. I actually found it conformed a bit to the natural contours of the face in a comfortable manner, while the unusual shape did not feel odd or out of place in the hand while typing."
