HTC Dream Possible News

HTC will hold a press announcement that may signal its first concrete details for its Android-based Dream cellphone, according to a message sent to members of the press, including SlashGear. With details remaining vague, the Taiwan company's London event will introduce the "next wave of HTC innovation" and promises to be more significant than announcements made at events so far this year, which have largely been minor upgrades to the Shift and Touch DUAL as well as minor new phones such as the P3470.

HTC has been one of the founding members of the Open Handset Alliance and has already said it would be one of the first to launch a phone using Google's Linux-based Android software with a launch as soon as late 2008, placing the UK event at an appropriate timeframe. Sources in the past have said the first phone is codenamed the Dream and will have both a touchscreen as well as a slide-out keyboard. Rumors have surfaced that a BBC demonstration in February has revealed an early example of the Dream.

The press gathering will also come roughly one year after the introduction of the HTC Touch, which has been one of HTC's most successful models.
