Hi All,

I am looking at purchasing a HTC Dream for use as a phone as well as developing/playing with the Android OS (other than just playing on the SDK/simulator) - so I would like to be able to load my Android based apps onto it...

* Just wondering if anyone has got a HTC Dream and what they think of the Android OS as well as functionality/build etc? I am actually hoping to get this from Singapore and use my Vodafone Prepay SIM on it.

* Second part is, has anyone developed and loaded their own Android software on to these phones? I assume it comes with a PC to phone cable (or as an accessory)

The going price for this phone is around : NZD 950 a bit on the high side - does anyone have an alternate out there with less of a hit on the pocket?

Hope to hear any comments - Thanks!

Get a Telecom OKTA Touch, it runs Android really well and has similar specs to the G1 but you can get one for less than $300 on trademe. See for instructions.

Thanks for the reply!

Have read good things about the OKTA Touch but seems like its tied to Telecom so won't allow for the Voda SIM to be inserted (me being on Voda - and not exactly wanting to change atm)
