for future reference, the HTC dream IS the T-Mobile g1. they're the same but T-Mobile calls it by their own name.
Anonymous, 09 Feb 2009almost matched telstras coverage??? in their wildest dreams maybe.. they are nowhere NEAR the ... morehaha why the hell are you talking about their broadband delivery when this is a discussion about mobile networks, post = fail. and how much is telstra paying you to spread their bull?
face, 07 Feb 2009what the hell with the "White is the new Black"?Apparently, black was a fashion colour in Asia recently, but now white is hot.
Anonymous, 08 Feb 20094 to 5 times larger? you are a schpincter muncher!!!! optus has almost matched telstra's cover... moretelstra has 98% of the population covered, optus has about 95% currently and are in a major network expansion phase at the moment.
by the end of 2009 optus will have 98.2% population coverage of australia. then they will hold the largest mobile network in australia.
at that point will telstra drop their prices? no...cause telstra is telstra.
BUT...why the hell are people arguing over networks anyway? this is a review of a phone not a network.
personally i dont mind the look of the phone, i just wouldnt trust 2 things: first release software (android) and the trackball.
most people in know (myself included) work in telecomunications, and we have discussed it.
trackballs fail way too often.

"Telstra is so expensive because you have to pay Sol"
and how much does the CEO of the commonwealth bank take home, or ford, or any other large corporation, get a clue would you, at least he actually did something useful, as far as making australia better goes anyway. let's be honest, our internet and mobile call rates suck. on every service provider.
little bit of information for all of you..
"Epitiro ranked Singtel Optus – the largest remaining NBN bidder - dead last out of the nation's eight main broadband providers, damning it for its poor email delivery times. It also slumped in areas such as response times in finding host addresses and network computers."
so yeah, optus, real good.. not, oh, and guess who was rated first.
anyway take your lame comments and comebacks to the whirlpool forums, where you'll get shot down in a barrage of flames for being such simple-minded, cheap, ignorant fools.
'the htc dream is a clone of the t-mobile G1'? did a child write this article?
face, 07 Feb 2009what the hell with the "White is the new Black"?It's a new teen fashion hype in certain parts of Asia; basically if your clothes aren't flashy white then you ain't hip.
I hear thatterm so often "android",does it prescribe its relation to man or rough style or what???
I just wanna know whatthe word means in Mobile world

He did wonderful things for Teletra's share price.
NextG is 850 so you have to wait for NAM models, remember when it first came out?
No Nokia's only $3 ZTE's made in China and sold to suckers for $A600.
Oh, and one more thing, the G1 is HTC branded, just look at the side...
I guess this is the original packaging of the first Android phone as first imagined by HTC, the Dream. The G1 is T-Mobile's own branding...this is all HTC.
Durr, the T-Mobile G1 was codenamed HTC Dream, they're not calling it the T-Mobile G1 because T-Mobile can't release it in Australia and Asia...
The g1 is an htc product..
So teh dream is exact the same..
But only on the dreams stand htc on the frontside of the phone..
