The HTC Dream G1 is about as out-of-the-bag as it can be. But, what we don’t know about the HTC Dream G1 is how big the device will be. It’ll be a huge hit, that much is certain, but what about the HTC Dream G1’s physical dimensions.
The FCC has just approved the first Android-powered handset, the HTC Dream G1, for US-duty. What we’re seeing is that the HTC Dream G1 is quite a bit smaller than we expected. The HTC Dream, which should be hitting T-Mobile in the next couple months, will be a solid 115mm long and 55mm wide. It’s about as tall and wide as the iPhone and iPhone 3G. Unfortunately, the FCC didn’t see fit to include thickness measurements in their documentation.
We’d imagine that the HTC Dream G1 will be at least slightly thicker than the iPhone 3G, due to the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. But, that doesn’t meant the Dream will be a fat monster. Considering that the HTC Touch Pro‘s slide-out keyboard maintains the device’s slim and svelte lines, we expect the HTC Dream G1 to be a sleek device.
