The HTC Dream is the T-Mobile G1, but without T-Mobile. As far as we can tell, the Dream is functionally identical to the G1 in every way - the main difference is the badge.

Android watchers shouldn't get too excited though - the Dream does not seem to be a "general release" device, instead it is being sold to SingTel in Singapore and Optus in Australia. These are two markets where T-Mobile has no presence, so the HTC Dream will not compete directly against the G1 in these markets. In fact, SingTel own Optus outright, so this appears to be a straightforward HTC / SingTel deal.

 HTC Dream

This is an Android powered 3.5G handset with WiFi, GPS, a 3.2 megapixel camera and a 480 x 320 pixel display. The Dream is a large device, and a bit slabby in design.. but it has a lot of admirers. The Dream is certainly an interesting alternative to the iPhone 3G, a handset that is also available on SingTel and Optus.

There's no word on pricing or availability, but most likely we will see the Dream sometime during early Q2 2009.
