T-Mobile's Android-based Dream G1 Handset Finally Gets In the Limelight

Closeup pictures of T-Mobile's Android Dream G1 Smartphone, manufactured by HTC, have surfaced on a little-known Chinese website before being replicated on other news outlets worldwide.

Taiwanese-based website iMobile has snapshots of what seem to be the real deal, a slide out phone with a fully-running Android operating system.

It is not the most beautiful smartphone around, but given that it is the first one out of the gates, the G1 appears to be well formed and full of life.

The T-mobile bound smartphone will come with 3G, 802.11g WiFi, Bluetooth connectivity and a full QWERTY keyboard.

Other specs that have leaked in the wild include a Qualcomm processor, 384MB of Internal RAM and ROM memory, 1GB microSD card, a trackball, a flash less 3.1 megapixel camera, an onboard as well as support for flash.

Obviously, since this is Android, expect full integration with Google's own Marketplace and other applications like Gmail, Gtalk, Calendar and Google Apps.
