More Android pictures turn up

Written by test

No more Mr Fuzzycam


Engadget found some pictures of Google's upcoming Android phone on a Taiwanese forum, although it appears you have to register to see the original shots, so we're going to be lazy and give you a link to Engadget at the end of this story.

What's important here is the fact that the pictures are very clear and for the first time gives a good idea of what the first Android handset, which is expected to be known as the G1, will really look like. First of all, the unit on the pictures is white and it doesn't look like the best choice of colour for this device, as it makes it look cheap.

It's bigger than the HTC TyTN, both in terms of height and width, which is a big downer, as HTC has managed to scale down its keyboard devices that came after the TyTN, but as HTC is making the G1 we really hoped for a more up to date device. They keyboard looks like something from a Sidekick rather than HTC usual style of keyboards.

Spec wise it seems like we're looking at a 528MHz Qualcomm processor, 128MB of RAM and 256MB of ROM, a 3.17in touch display with 480x320 resolution, a microSD card slot, a trackball for navigation beyond the touch screen, a 3.1Megapixel camera, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, quad band GSM, HSDPA, 3G and USB data connectivity.

Let's hope we don't have to wait too long for this device to launch, although we're really holding our fingers crossed for a slimmer second generation device.
