This is by far the clearest picture we’ve seen of the upcoming HTC Dream, albeit with poor lighting. The pictures also give us a better glimpse into the Android OS and what to expect once its finally released to the public.

A side-by-side comparison with other HTC products shows that it’s decently sized, though personally, I think it would have been better to go with a more sophisticated design. As it is now, it looks more like a toy or game console than a smartphone. Nevertheless, the over-all design looks functional enough to serve its purpose, although I do have some apprehensions on how effective the small keys will play out for people with big hands (and chubby fingers, of course). Perhaps this could just be a prototype, but then again, T-Mobile logo makes me think otherwise.
