ZATechshow’s Simon Dingle from HTC has confirmed that the G1 will arrive next year in South Africa, with Vodacom as network partner. It was not specified if it was an exclusive partnership though.

Different continent, same news. Dopod China are also planning to bring a chinese version of the G1, possibly for the first quarter of 2009.
“We intend to introduce the G1 to China, possibly in the first quarter of 2009, through a deal with High Tech Computer Corp. (HTC). It will be branded as a Dopod. We are now discussing a partnership with China Mobile,” a source from Dopod China told Interfax.
Dopod, HTC's partners in China, have not yet decided whether they will use Edge or TD-SCDMA, the 3G standard used in China.
