Video: Google G1 Phone Will Make You Funnerer, Smarterer.

Geez, these advertising companies just can’t seem to get it right these days, can they? The new Google G1 phone went official today with a T-Mobile launch in New York and we have the first commercial for it below. The video seems to be (poorly) targeting the hip kids out there when we all know this phone’s one for the geeks…Android OS and all. Get with it T-Mo.

The G1’s open-source OS is designed with Google Apps in mind and apparently you must have a Google Account in order to make use of the phone. It would seem that Google and T-Mobile both have different ideas of exactly who their target audience is. If it is indeed the kids they’re targeting, then they need maximum compatibility with services from Yahoo and Microsoft that are so popular with this group. Anyone considering purchasing this phone would be put off by a forced migration of web services.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
