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.

  • Note that phones often have a different name between the US and Europe, if only for carrier branding reasons

  • @Bryan: I got the T-Mobile version in Germany and had absolutely no problems using it with another carrier.

    In the US, at least, you have to get the Unlock SIM code for the phone to be used on a different carrier. support.t-mobile.com/doc/tm51885.xml

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

Some more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTC_Dream

  • Yep, same phone. 'Dream' is what HTC called the handset, 'T-mobile G1' is how T-mobile sold it. Nov 8, 2010 at 18:48
