Despite being an Androind (and G1 fan) I still cannot pretend that the G1 is a perfect phone when it comes to design. That said, it seems that the Dream G2, which is coming courtesy of Chinese phone maker Sciphone will be more of a nightmare than a dream.
To begin with, they mention that the Dream G2 will be running a modified version of Android, and I cannot help but hope that the modification includes a virtual keyboard, because after looking at these images (below) it does not appear to have any physical keyboard.
Aside from the keyboard, the Dream G2 will be an EDGE only handset, meaning no 3G support. Other features include a 2.8-inch QVGA display, 4-megapixel cam with auto-focus, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP, an FM radio and 50MB of internal memory with a microSD card slot with support for up to an additional 16GB of storage.
The Dream G2 is expected to be released on November 28, of course unless they figure out the keyboard, or lack thereof, the Dream G2 may not see much use until a virtual keyboard is released for Android in early-2009.
