The HTC Dream which will be manufactured by High Tech Computer Corporation is going to be the first Android phone to be marketed and released. Android as some of you may be knowing is Google’s mobile platform. The Dream will cost $179 when purchased along with a T-Mobile plan. The good news is that HTC has a very strong base in India and might launch the phone pretty early in India at a very competitive price.

The Android platform is designed to take on the likes of Windows Mobile, Symbian and other generic and specific mobile phone OS manufacturers. However this particular phone is intended to compete head on with the Apple Iphone. The Apple Iphone has been a moderate success in the US and a complete failure in India.

The HTC Dream features a capacitive touchscreen interface, GPs, 3.1 MP camera, Accelerometer and a Qualcomm 528MHz processor. Its interesting to note we dont even know the processor used by Apple.

On the software front too, the phone is pretty good. As you can see in the video, it has built in Gmail, Youtube player. It features multiple desktops like most Linux systems and allows drag and drop for icons (How cool is that). The menu is brought up with swipes.

It also has a full QWERTY keyboard, gotta say looks pretty promising.

    The processor used on the Apple iPhone is an ARM architecture-based Samsung processor. Although Apple hasn’t ‘officially’ announced that (and brands it as an ‘Apple CPU’), it has been found by different hackers to be a Samsung processor.

    I *do* use Sify, but am definitely not down under. Maybe because the data is routed from Chennai…

    I am seriously waiting for this , the Apple Iphone was such an anticlimax that this is what i am pinning all my hopes on. A samsung processor ?, does samsung make processors ? Shouldnt they be using freescale ?

    HTC dream is a smart phone from HTC. The handset fulfills the needs and gives value to the customers. The attractive feature of the handset is that applications in this phone are run by Android which makes them faster to response. The Qwerty keypad is the another good feature of the handset which attracts the customer to go for it.

    I would definitely prefer to have one.
