The T-Mobile G1 was a mind-blowing experience to crack open. There’s an insane number of parts, and the way they put it together seems, well, complex. Make sure you give the sliding mechanisms a peek near the bottom.
Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for. The back of the casing, showcases swooping action (we’re seriously too in love).
The translational springs on this puppy are strong as !&&*. But it needs to be so, since it has to drive a large screen around an arc. It’s interesting to note how much effort HTC seems to have put in to produce a clean swooping action. Perhaps we’re overthinking this.
