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.

Would just like to clarify that I am most certainly a programmer (you can Google me if you like) ;-) And even running the M3 SDK version of Android on the touchscreen emulator has the OS looking and acting exactly the same as non-touch - there is no completely different UI for touch, so it's misleading to suggest that what you see here isn't representative of Android at the time. Just my 2ยข
