    The T-Mobile G1 Android-powered phone is the first cell phone with the operating system designed by Google Inc.

    A text conversation has revealed a big problem with the G1 mobile phone.

    Some users of T-Mobile's G1 phone found that typing any word on the phone's keyboard, in any application, sent whatever they typed to the phone's command line shell, wired is reporting.

    Google repaired the problem. But not all G1 phones may have been fixed as T-Mobile is rolling out the patch in stages and there could be some phones still to be updated.
