HTC Dream Approved by FCC, no hints of Google’s Android
Although HTC dream has been delayed a lot, still HTC seems to have been working constantly on it and finally the HTC Dream has been approved by the FCC.
The headset has been listed as ‘Dream’ with model number “DREA100”. It will include the Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR technology and the initial testing has been performed on GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/1900 and WCDMA 1700 bands (where the last one is the T-Mobile’s preferred 3G frequency). It has also received the 802.11b/g WiFi Interoperability Certificate.
The HTC Dream has many times been referred as ‘the Google Phone’ and if the rumors are to be considered true then Google’s promise of their phone coming this year could be considered as true?
As mentioned before the HTC Dream will have many features which will distinguish it from other phones:
- time-sensitive touch gestures: Hold down your finger longer, and the area you’re controlling expands
- easy navigation with icons for e-mail, text documents and YouTube along the top of the screen
- virtual machine for true multitasking. Applications can launch once during a session, then reside in the background
