HTC G1 (Dream) – Specs & Official Photo Leak?

OK So with just over 8 hours to go until the official release of the HTC G1 on T-Mobile I have seen loads of articles, breaking news alerts and so on about this device.

Here are a few things I’ve heard so far. The G1 will only be released on T-Mobile in USA for the time being, not such a big surprise in itself but there is rumour that it will also be released in the UK on T-Mobile pretty soon too. Personally I find this a strange move by  HTC given that the UK normally never lag behind the US in classy phones so why HTC, why?

Here are the specs on the device and what’s known so far:

  • In-store, immediate sales only available in stores within 5 miles of a 3G covered area. If a store is beyond that range, representatives will walk customers through a purchase
  • One touch access to: Search, Maps, Gmail, Youtube, Calendar, and Google Talk
  • Gmail account and data plan required
  • GPS
  • 3.1 mp camera, no video recording
  • No stereo bluetooth (A2DP)
  • Dimensions: 4.6 x 2.16 x 0.63 in
  • Weighs 5.6 ounces
  • 480×320 65K color screen
  • 5 hour talk time, 130 hour talk time
  • Expandable up to 8GB

What else have we been able to find? Well on the US page after login a splash screen was found featuring the G1 handset. The bad news on that is that is was a dead link.

As the news breaks today on this handset we will bring it straight to you.
