binary.bang writes "Google has announced an unlocked version of T-Mobile's G1 for sale at the same unlocked price of $399.

Don't be misled by the word 'Dev,' looks like all you need to qualify is an Android Market account. This looks like the Open Handset Alliance delivering the promised Open Handset: yes root, yes flash-your-build, no contract, no strings attached. Anyone else relieved & thrilled?"
