About HTC Dream

Looking at the HTC Dream, the question was always going to be whether or not Australia’s first Google Android-powered mobile phone could compete with the Apple iPhone 3GS. With a full-slide out QWERTY keyboard, trackball and touch-screen interface, many people will like the HTC Dream, but a couple of small hardware and software issues could mean it doesn’t beat its rival in a few categories.

Physically, you may have mixed feelings about the HTC Dream. It’s not a small phone, although you do have to consider it has a real keyboard. However, its display is rather small, and the handset’s matte black finish looks more like a business mobile than its glossy iPhone counterpart. The keyboard itself is accessed in an unusual fashion, as you have to slide the screen up and over in an arc movement, but its design is great.
