The first handset that will run Google’s Android Mobile Operating System has finally uncovered its full features. Until now we knew just fragments of its real story and HTC has decided to show us what Dream can do.
The Android comes not simply with the handset; Google is creating an “App Store” of its own. This means that users will have at disposal an online portal where they can download applications, add-ons, games and more. The service is said to be named Android Marketplace. Since Google’s mobile OS system is open source, everything on that site may also be free.
The HTC Dream comes with quad-band GSM connectivity (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900), WiFi and HSDPA, it has a 528MHz Qualcomm 7201 CPU, 64MB RAM and 1GB memory card. The handset has a full HTML browser and YouTube dedicated playerand its 5-row full QWERTY keypad is perfect for its various email support (Gmail, AOL, POP, IMAP, SMTP) and Instant Messaging (Gtalk, Yahoo!, AIM and MSN).
The handset looks pretty interesting and worth its price. The HTC Dream comes with a 3.17 TFT touchscreen display with 480 x 320 pixels resolution. Its video and music players support various multimedia formats. The handset comes with a superb 3.1 megapixel camera, USD and Google Sync.
Further information is limited or inexistent as there was no official presentation of the device. Rumors have it that an official unveiling of the handset might take place next month.
