Google Android coming to T-Mobile UK

image The Telegraph are reporting that the HTC Dream Google Android handset will be coming to the UK exclusively on T-Mobile from November. This is good news as in the UK we have sat and watched the proposed launch in the US without any indication until now that we will see an Android handset. You can read what The Telegraph have to say after the break.

A new front in Silicon Valley’s fierce battle for technology supremacy will be opened in Britain before Christmas with the launch of Google’s first mobile phone venture.

Google’s ‘Dream’ phone, which uses its much-hyped Android open-source operating system, will be available exclusively on the T Mobile network with plans for a high street launch as early as November.

Its arrival in Britain will mark the next phase of Google’s attempts to dominate new areas of the technology industry. Today is the 10th anniversary of its launch, since when it has grown into a $139bn behemoth that dominates the internet search industry.

The ‘Dream’, which is being made by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, will operate using T-Mobile’s third-generation network and feature a slide-out keypad. It will be pitched against Apple’s phenomenally successful iPhone, which uses a touch-screen keyboard.

Android has been designed to support a vast suite of new internet applications and aims to replicate Microsoft’s success with its Windows desktop software.
