According to my friend, Greg Kumparek on the Crunch* team, we can expect HTC's Dream out on T-Mobile as early as mid-October; in fact his post from this week says to expect in on October 20th if everything goes to plan for the carrier.  The company will be making the official announcement in a press conference next week on September 23rd in New York.

If that's the case, the HTC Dream will be the first Android-enabled phone to the market. I just hope that it's the perfect vehicle for highlighting Google's open source OS.

From images, we can tell that it has a vertical and landscape view, wide screen and slide out keypad that reveals a good size keyboard underneath that is reminiscent of the Touch design, which I got to check out at CTIA and really enjoyed.

If you haven't seen the Touch Diamond or Touch Pro from HTC, check out Noah's hands-on videos recorded at the CTIA event from here.
