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...

The Wall Street Journal posted its own story about the supposed September 23rd launch date for the first Google Android OS based smartphone, courtesy of HTC and T-Mobile. While the story doesn’t... mention the T-Mobile G1 by name, instead using the HTC Dream moniker, the WSJ is saying that the phone will be announced next week and will be available for purchase late next month (October).

TmoNews has received a photo of a list of T-Mobile SKUs that includes three entries for the upcoming Google Android powered G1 smartphone. The three entries indicate that the... T-Mobile G1 will be available in black and white color schemes, which we’ve seen before, and also in brown. Brown? Really? I mean, seriously.

I personally am not that impressed with t...

Well, it was bound to happen soon enough. Somebody with what is likely a pre-production T-Mobile G1 (HTC Dream) has shot a few photos of the device and released... them. The irony of the fact that one of HTC’s own smartphones (a Touch Diamond) was used to snap the photos certainly won’t offer the Taiwanese manufacturer any consolation.

AndroidGuys.com has received a wire frame drawing from a “trusted source” that depicts the new T-Mobile G1 Android phone (AKA the HTC Dream). Two things... in the drawing are particularly interesting:

The phone sports T-Mobile and HTC logos, as expected, but also prominently displays a “with Google” logo in the middle of its rear cover. The...
