After the first Android OS based phone, the HTC Dream, appeared in a blurry low-quality video and its design was revealed by some sketches, now the first live spy photos were posted at a Taiwanese forum. It really has the "protruding chin", which houses a few buttons, available both when opened and closed. As the pictures are of a T-Mobile branded unit, we hope it will soon be available on the U.S. market.

WFT...didn't they get any design cue from all the other great looking touchscreen phones on the market. What an ugly looking phone. I think I'll pass.

personally i think that it's pretty nice. I'm just not into the whole all-touchscreen thing yet. I think always having a keyboard or keypad can always add to a phone. T-Mobile hopefully will be launching alot of cool phones since their 3g service is about to hit everywhere. I've seen that all-touchscreen Samsung phone that they are coming out with and I think the Dream is pretty cool. I was thinking about getting a Sidekick LX but with this soon about to arrive within a couple of months I think i'll wait. It's a nice starter phone for their 3g service I must say. Hopefully they'll be in different color variants but the white is cool. This phone probably be like 400-500 dollars...so Christmas here I come lol

"theird 3g service is about to hit everywhere"? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha please, define what you mean by "...everywhere..."

what i mean it's about to hit in the US don't be a smartass. I think alot of people don't like T-Mobile because it's the smallest of the four major carriers. Just because they don't have the biggest baddest phones doesn't mean it's not a good service. And if you are going to try to be smart at least spell their right.

i think the features look wicked cool, but it looks kind of bulky and wide? all tmobile needs to work on now is to get better coverage

The protruding chin just convinced me not to get it.

I think it will look better in black, if they make it that way. White paint on plastic gives it a kind of cheap, toy-ish look, imo.

I love that new T-mobile Sidekick Slide thats running Android!!!

28. jpkid (unregistered)

can you read? this is not a Sidekick. It's the HTC Dream. Sidekicks are made by Danger not HTC.

I hope it's worth it for it to stand out as a top phone for t-mobile' we will see.

I don't know what hurt my eyes more... if the ugly plastic phone or the leopard spread on its background.... LADIES and GENTS the Foxy Nightmare is on the house. . . . . It comes with free zebra patterned bluetooth and a keychain that says "Dandy Daddy"..... Also.... This can be just a prototype,,, Typing in that looks painful for the right hand.... Again.... ***ROAAARRR*** hihihi

that may be one of the ugliest phones I ever saw, and this had so much hype on it....plus it is going to the most pathetic provider in the US, which was a TERRIBLE move by HTC....the size of a psp and the speeds of AOL...not smart.

Who gives a crap what the phone looks like? If the user experience rocks, and I anticipate that this one will, does it really matter that the phone isn't "good looking"? What are you planning on doing with it? Jerking off while staring at it?

Most people give a crap what the phone looks like. I get your point, but nowadays, phones kind of represent us in a way, whether we like it or not. I tend to choose functionality over fashion, but if a device is just plain hideous, I would definitely go with something that has similar features and looks presentable. I don't like the design of this phone at all, but I am excited to see what the OS is like.

The phone will be 199 with 2 year upgrade. Personally i think htc totally missed in the design department. it should have taken after the touch pro

another 'my carrier is better than yours' statement? I know you are proud of VZW, I'm on VZW too, but did you know VZW is not part of Open Handset Alliance? so, don't expect Android on VZW phones anytime soon, the closest thing you'll see is the google search bar on its phones, that's all. And oh, also did you know that VZW ALWAYS cripple their phones so you won't get the best out of them? Compare the upcoming Touch Diamond & Touch Pro for Sprint and VZW and you'll see what VZW do to us.

Relax folks. This is only the first device to have Android. There will be many to follow. It's not a bad move by HTC because they can easily make a version for AT&T and others.

well google was never popular as an "eye candy" for example look at google's search engine and orkut. google was always popular for the performance. I hope android will be a great os. regarding the design, the phone is made by HTC, yes the same company which made the sexy diamond. so i guess the next android phones will also have that sexy look !

I think the phone looks hot.. its different from the pocket pc phones and and has a pretty attractive keyboard.. I'm not even hating on tmobile..and I have sprint.. I'm pretty impressed with the os and rocking a white phone doesn't give it that toyish look either.. since it is a prototype, I wouldn't be surprised in the color change anyhow.. plus there's always sharpies ... if it drops a cdma version .. I'lll be online waiting for this instead of the htc victor.. oh.. and i don't think it would be a sidekick slide by htc... that label would scar just make people look away...

Android looks amazing, but the phone .. eh. It looks kind of like a broken sidekick.. and will probably be a pain in the ass to hold properly without one side being heavier than the other. Plus white is a little .. odd .. I think android would look great on something darker, like a sleep black phone or something.

more like a "sleek black phone!" sleep black phone...god who wants a lazy phone?! lol

I think this phone is nice, and I can't wait for t-mobile to release it. Check out the t-mobile 3G speedhttp://mobilemagazine.com/content/100/340/C16053/

Hmm... might be awkward at first using that keyboard with it not being centered. It'll be interesting to see how well it does.

I think people are a little bit deceived by the poor quality of these pictures. They have been taken in very unflattering light which could make even the prettiest phone look butt ugly. I will admit that it's not the best looking handset around but it's certainly not a horrible as many of you have been implying. The keyboard is a little bit worrying at first site though, I do however trust that it will be totally usable upon release. HTC have been making phones with this form factor for a long time now, I don't think they are going to drop the ball with such an important release.

you people just have no life. a phone is a phone and some people like things that others dont. its their opinion on the phones that upset you but for what reason...i highly doubt that you made the phone or had anything to do with the phone so no reason to get offended.
