HTC Calls Android Phone Dream, Feels Like One Already

Illustration for article titled HTC Calls Android Phone Dream, Feels Like One Already

More details of HTC's Google phone are emerging, it seems. The handset is to be called "Dream", will be touchscreen and have a large QWERTY keypad. So, what else do we know? And, more importantly, when is it coming out?

Well, the HTC handset is around five inches long and 3 inches wide with a keypad that either slides or swivels out to make emailing, note-taking and writing Web addresses easy. The Internet is navigated via controls below the screen. So, that's just like a generic HTC phone, then.

The source of the current leak, described as "a person close to the situation" (ha!) claims that the handset will be available around the end of the year, although HTC is staying schtumm on the matter. "We cannot comment on this product," their rep said.

HTC will be facing competition from Samsung. The Korean electronics giant is, apparently, wetting its knickers to get its Google phone out before that of HTC. [Yahoo!]

Wow, its amazing how people make comments without even reading the article. The article states, "HTC handset is around five inches long and 3 inches wide with a keypad that either slides or swivels out." So the phone in the picture is obviously not the phone. It amazes me how some people are so ignorant/stupid/retarded. It doesn't take much for a phone to be better than the iphone. My tilt destroys the iphone any day. Im sure htc's new device will be even better, and I'm sure google's android will help make it better. I mean I'm happy with my wm 6.1, it looks better and works better than the iphone os. But I'm curious to see what Android has to offer. And I'm also curious to see how htc will improve on their top of the line device(kaiser).
