Forget about the FCC specs and the blurry spy images that have been passed around thus far. Here it is T-Mobile people, the handset you’ve been waiting for. Behold the T-Mobile branded HTC “Dream” G1 in all of its screen-sliding, qwerty-rocking, Android-powered glory. Queue the sting ensemble. Shown here in white sporting what is likely a near-release version of Android, the G1 is basically exactly what we all hoped it would be. It’s not all unicorns and pixie dust however. As much as we can’t wait to see this handset released, the new clearer images do bring a potential problem to light. While it won’t be a deal-breaker for most we presume, check out the recessed area that the qwerty keyboard sits in. Couple that with the off-center design and reaching those top two rows on the right side of the keyboard is quite possibly going to be a bit awkward, especially for those with smaller hands. Oh well, you know you still want it. Hit the jump for some more quality shots of this baby in action.
