HTC G1 gets unofficial Jelly Bean port

by: AdrianAugust 9, 2012

Worried that your one-year-old dual-core smartphone might not get an official Jelly Bean upgrade, due to the software not “being supported” by the “outdated” hardware? Well, that’s bull and you know it! And if you doubted that, we now have the most conclusive piece of evidence possible to prove otherwise.

The HTC Dream (aka T-Mobile G1) is the device that started it all, being the first ever Android running phone in history. Back in September 2008 (man, we’re old!), the Dream was introduced powered by Android 1.0, which quickly turned into 1.1 and then into 1.5 Cupcake.

The last official software update [...]

Update: Rogers HTC Magic upgrade offer

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 13, 2010

It was reported a few days ago that Rogers would be allowing HTC Dream owners the chance to upgrade to an HTC Magic due to the fact that the Dream would not get an OS update past it’s current iteration of 1.5.  This was great news but the details were scarce at the time and there was uncertainty in the terms.  It is now being reported that the offer does include a free upgrade, but with a small catch.  Customers who opt for the upgrade will automatically have their contract renewed for the Canadian standard of 3 years, which turns out to be about a 7 month extension for most Dream owners.  Hit the jump for the complete terms and conditions of this offer as well as a look at the [...]

Rogers allowing HTC Dream owners to upgrade to HTC Magic?

by: Chuck ZichJanuary 11, 2010

Word out of Canada is that Rogers feels for those early adopters of the HTC Dream.  In the wake of the news that the device won’t be upgraded past Android 1.5, Rogers has unofficially announced that they will offer an upgrade to Dream users to switch to the HTC Magic, which will receive at least Android 2.1.  No word yet on any details including whether or not users will have to succumb to a new multi-year contract or not.

The official statement from Rogers is this:

“It’s great to hear that everyone is pleased by HTC’s agreement to upgrade Magic to 2.1. We pushed hard on your behalf and are pleased with that part. When it comes to Dream, we share in your [...]

HTC Dream based Android Dev 1 phone available for US$399

by: Michael OrylDecember 6, 2008

Android Dev 1 smartphone

Google is now offering the HTC Dream based Android Dev 1 smartphone to registered Google developers for US$399.  The device is free of locks of any kind, and can be used with any SIM card.  It also features an unlocked bootloader that doesn’t require signed images, so that you can load custom builds of the Android OS onto the phone.

Before you can buy one of these, though, you have to be registered as a Google Android developer, a process that is simple, but costs $25 to do.  Right now, at least, Google is limiting orders to one handset per developer.  They hint at the possibility of that changing in the future, [...]

The HTC Dream goes out for a walk on a sunny day

by: Darcy LaCouveeSeptember 19, 2008

Well, photos like these are to be expected now that the official release of the G1 is only days away. So here you have it – has posted a few photos of what he claims is an HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1 that he managed to get thanks to some contacts at Google.

The photos are not large by any means, but they are well exposed and nice and clear. You don’t get stuff like that too often in spy shots. In any event, stay tuned here next week to get live photos and video of the T-Mobile G1 from the launch event, which I’ll be at.

The device in the photos lacks any obvious branding and has the markings of one of [...]
