More information on the HTC Dream

More information on the HTC Dream
The first FCC information we saw contained precious little detail, but a new document has revealed that the device will be 55mm x 115mm, which gives it a smaller footprint than the iPhone 3G. Now AndroidGuys are showing some other documentation that seems to jive nicely with the FCC docs which put the device at just 16.35mm deep, making the Dream skinnier than the Touch Pro and Xperia X1. It also reveals a protruding chin on the device, which we are seeing for the first time. T-Mobile/Google/HTC, it's about time you guys just go official with this!

finally, T-Mobile has a real game changer in their hands. I've seen the videos of android apps, this phone is going to change the face of the phone competitions, and the way people use their cellphones.

I just bought the dream and I have to say it's more of a nightmare.... I found a way to keep the battery in if you use a stapler so I can keep the back in the phone. Paper boy was good except they made a new version and he is now on a motorcycle. I didn't really like the new enhancements. I did download Zelda OTA and it was crazy!!!!! Overall the phone is terrible but ZELDA is GREAT. I love that my phone also can morph into a life size model of LINK. True he can't move or talk but I leave him in front of my T.V. when I go out and burgalars think that I am still home (I slightly resemble LINK). Overall, wouldn't reccomend the phone unless it's a dummy to guard your house.

Do not buy the dream... It is literally a black hole that will suck you into nothingness. The goverment made this phone for population control..... Do not buy this phone

A good phone? So far the only information I can find for this device is that its smaller than an iphone and may have 3g. What are you basing your comment on?
