HTC Dream / G1 is coming closer and closer

Postby plusminus » Tue Sep 09, 2008 2:18 am

Hello Community,

via tmonews.com
CTIA is just days away and we all eagerly await Robert Dotsons keynote and any and all goodies he might announce in his speech. Until then here is yet one more confirmation of Android coming closer and closer to launch. An anonymous tipster emailed a screenshot of SKU codes and well I think you guys will read exactly we already knew, three colors: Black, Brown and White. I don’t know what a usual time frame is for those numbers to be loaded and a phones release is but its so close, so very very close. Enjoy!

On a secondary note, we’d like to point out that while we see this phone labeled as the G1, the FCC docs were labeled “dream.” So the conspiracy continues again, grassy knoll perhaps? We’ve talked about this before and I know the wait is killing us all and we’re discussing anything and everything to bide the time but its worth pointing out yet again that we may be in for a two device surprise.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

Great!

But IMO, this phone isn't the one that touches my heart... :?
Maybe I'll wait until Samsung, LG or Motorola release their device, one without keyboard, and a bit smaller.

Despite my preference, I think this phone will be the one that will let know Android to everyone, with or without "chin".

The inner-details count, if they are as in the 'leaks', I will buy one no matter whats it costs.(GPS/3G will be the only must have) I will need the first phone anyway, just to test the applications I want to sell. Maybe I'll even get one for a review! If I get one, expect a extensive review on it right here on anddev.

Finally some news from/for Europe as well: http://www.pcpro.co.uk/blogs/2008/09/16 ... -london-2/

Could this confirm the path that we have been fooled and the Dream will look more like HTC's other devices rather than the prototype we've seen? If not, the Dream better be cheap. I hope somebody puts on some videos later today.

Exciting :)

But he describes it as not being to different (but more polished appearance):

The actual device itself looks much like the “mystery” handset that we’ve all seen before in blurry YouTube videos, and the HTC Dream, which is rumoured to be launching as soon as the next fortnight. Personally, I think it bore a remarkable resemblance to the HTC Dream.

Technically, little had changed from the earlier leaked videos, but this device looked far more polished...

I hope I can somehow get one myself pretty soon, as i'm not a T-Mobile customer.
