Are there any differences between "T-Mobile G1" and "HTC Dream" besides the name?

If Yes, what are the differences?

Well there is also the developer version of the phone too. If you get the T-Mobile version, you are locked in to T-Mobile as a carrier. – Bryan Denny Nov 8 '10 at 17:53
Note that phones often have a different name between the US and Europe, if only for carrier branding reasons – Ivo Flipse Nov 8 '10 at 18:17
@Bryan: I got the T-Mobile version in Germany and had absolutely no problems using it with another carrier. – dStulle Nov 9 '10 at 10:56
In the US, at least, you have to get the Unlock SIM code for the phone to be used on a different carrier. – Bryan Denny Nov 9 '10 at 13:47

Not that I have found. It's just different names for the same phone. (A pretty standard marketing practice.)

Some more info here:

Yep, same phone. 'Dream' is what HTC called the handset, 'T-mobile G1' is how T-mobile sold it. – FoleyIsGood Nov 8 '10 at 18:48
