At Google’s Deverloper Day event today in London, Google execs were showing off what seems most certainly to be the new HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1 – complete with tape covering up the branding on the phone. Google said that this was the first time it had shown a working phone in Europe.
When asked to demonstrate an actual call on the device, Google’s Mike Jennings was quoted as saying:
“I can’t show it off any more, I’ll be out of a job.”
He also mentioned that there is no reason that the Android OS couldn’t be used on an embedded device in decidedly non-phone related applications.
