Google This is absolutely fascinating. Steven Troughton-Smith has gotten his hands on one of the two early Android prototypes - the Google 'Sooner'. The Sooner is the BlackBerry-esque Google phone, which was supposed to be released first, followed by the much more advanced Google Dream (yup, what would eventually become the G1). Lots of high-res screenhots to get a good look at early Android. Update: Fascinating comment.

Member since:

There are quite a few Android phones with resistive touch screen out there (I can immediately recall one popular, LG GT540), so it's not exactly a show-stopper like some1 suggests above.

(though yeah, it's nice that G1 had capacitive - in all, it's basically still just as good as any decent entry-level Android that's currently shipping, my buddy still has G1 with some 2.3 community ROM - I just wondered about not quickly rigging up, available for dev much sooner, something from existing HTC tech ...which you just adressed)
