Images from around the web are showing the HTC Dream AKA the T-Mobile G1 in all its bendy, screen-sliding glory. This Sidekick-like phone has a pop up screen, full QWERTY keyboard, and none of the buckets of suck that characterize Windows Mobile phones. Android is still fairly nascent so I worry that the application environment will be limited on launch but an open, powerful platform backed by a major, web-focused corporation is better than a useless accretion of outdated functions owned by a Borg-like conglomerate or an OS created by a gnomic, arbitrarily pissy design company in my book. And then there’s Symbian…

That said, expect to see the G1 hit T-Mobile stores next month. Here’s hoping.
