Dream Pix, Uk release November
Great news for Android Fans, maybe updates have come out the past 2 weeks.
HTC Dream – First Android Phone, is suggested to debut in November through T-Mobile in UK as reported by talkandroid.com. Device has a pretty good screen with a slide out qwerty keyboard.
Its probably safe to assume that this device is grabbing massive attention only as a first ever Android OS mobile phone. I find it very ugly, bulky, boring. HTC seems confused as to who its prime target is. Its not the youth, students, IPhone sweeped it completely. As much as touchscreen is the new mantra.. there are still normal folks out there who desire a good Mobile OS in a non touch screen device and for such market, only Nokia-Symbian combination was a real alternative. Iphone seems to have taken a slice of it. For now, HTC Dream seems a Dream only of Tech Enthusiasts ( like me ) and corporates.
Im more interested to see how an Android powered Smartphone (without touchscreen) would challenge Nokia-Symbian. I guess we’ll have to wait till Q1 2009 for some real Android Releases.
Android App store: seems similar to iPhone’s Appz store.
Google’s New Chrome browser.. will probably make it to Android.
