Android 2.0 may only have been officially announced last week, but don't underestimate the speed of the open-source community.  They've already got a basic install of the new OS running on the original HTC Dream (aka the T-Mobile G1); it's not optimized yet, which means the handset chugs along rather than whipping through the pages like we're finding on the Verizon DROID by Motorola, but it's certainly working.

Android, Google & the G1 HTC Dream: why T-Mobile makes sense

Android, Google & the G1 HTC Dream: why T-Mobile makes sense

Word is out that T-Mobile looks likely to be the only network on which you'll be able to buy an Android-based handset in 2008.  The HTC Dream, understood to be called the T-Mobile G1, will likely be the first of many 'G'-type smartphones running Android.  Even before the initial platform announcement, Google was being asked to confirm the existence of their "gPhone"; all they would say was that there would be many such handsets.

Branding the handsets gPhone would leave Google (or T-Mobile) open to criticism that they were merely copying Apple's style of nomenclature.  However, by releasing a range of 'G' handsets they leave the public to make their own connection and adopt "gPhone".  MarkMonitor - an "enterprise brand protection" company" has bought up MobileG1.com, T-MobileG2.com, T-MobileG3.com, T-MobileG4.com and T-MobileG5.com; a potential conclusion could be that, for the next 6-12 months even, if a customer wants an Android handset they'll have to turn to T-Mobile.

HTC Rapid Charger 2.0 gives One smartphones a quick boost

Time and time again, we've looked to the battery as the bottleneck for smartphone performance and longevity. No longer encumbered by CPU or memory, at least for some models, it is the battery's usually short life that has now become the primary concern for smartphone users. But in cases where you don't have a huge battery or can't swap ones in a pinch, your last resort will be an external battery or a wall charger. For the latter, HTC is bringing a new Rapid Charger 2.0 that promises to bring your phone back to life at a fraction of the time required.
