Anybody can buy an unlocked T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream courtesy of Google – all you have to do is buy one of Google’s own Android Dev Phone 1 devices for $400 plus a few fees. Many have been reluctant to do so though, originally with frequency of OS updates being of concern and most recently non-access to Paid Apps being the issue. Google and HTC have now resolved both of these with Version 1.1 of Android for the Android Dev Phone launching today.

The release notes provide a list of everything that is new and some of the improvements included are:

Support for Search by Voice
Priced Apps
Alarm Clock Fixes
Sending Gmail freeze fixed
Fixes mail notifications and refreshing intervals
Maps now show business reviews

Many of the improvements are in regards to the POP3 e-mail accounts which I’m sure will make people using the Dev Phone 1 as their main phone very happy. A bunch of API changes have been made as well.
