Huh. Google And Blog is reporting that T-Mobile has been planning to deliver a Christmas Present to all T-Mobile G1 users in the form of a new longer-lasting battery. The current battery is an anemic 1150mAh and any G1 user will tell you that it drains FAST. Anything over 1150 mAh would be lovely. If T-Mobile were giving out exchanges to improve battery life, they would definitely solve the complaints of many users.

As great as this sounds there is still no official word from T-Mobile, so we'll take a wait and see approach on the rumor. We're unsure of how T-Mobile can manage to pull this off, so we're going to do some more investigation and report back. Keep your eyes peeled!

I wonder how they plan on sending it out. Do they have our gmail account that's linked to our phone on a database?

Just got conformation with "Android Support" when I called T-Mobile. Batteries will be sent out as a "late Christmas present." The woman on the phone claimed she would be sending one as soon as possible.
