According to informed sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, T-Mobile and technology partner HTC will announce the first phone running the Android platform. Called the Dream, T-Mobile and HTC will publicly unveil the phone next week, though it won't become available until some time in October. The Wall Street Journal reports that the phone will have a large touch display, will have a swivel-out QWERTY keyboard, and will have a trackball for navigation. HTC expects to sell between 600,000 and 700,000 of the Android-powered phones by the end of 2008. The sources didn't provide any indication of what the Dream may cost.

Is 750,000 units realistc???

You guys think they can do that many by the end of the year? Especially on T-mobile. Seems like a pretty lofty goal, but hey, who knows right?
A swivel-out QWERTY keyboard makes it sound like a Sidekick-style device, and if that's true then 600,000 to 700,000 units by the end of the year is very feasible.
I have no doubt in my mind that they WILL NOT sale that many devices. The phone is hideous! Large touchscreen but it fails in the looks department. I will definitely wait for the next Android phone because the Dream looks more like a nightmare!
