A video demonstration of a handset thought to be the G1 Googlephone’s successor has been leaked online.

The seven-minute film opens with a shot of the phone’s front, which clearly shows the name “Dream”. The G1 was developed by HTC, and Dream is thought to have been the firm’s codename for it, so what we could be looking at here is the G2. Or it could be a G1 prototype.
The video shows the phone running Google’s Android OS and a Google logo printed onto the battery cover, a feature shared with the G1.
After these initial shots, you’re treated to a step-by-step guide through all of the phone’s features. These range from taking pictures and watching videos, to playing games and accessing the web.
Google’s green Android character has also been put to use as a comical phone charger. Although the phone seems real enough, it’s strange that a stylus has been added for data input when Google’s keen to get users hooked on fingertip data-entry.
Since the video carries no official recognition, it’s impossible to say if the phone will make it to the UK. ®
It is not running android.
It is running Nuleus skinned to look like Android
got the G1 my self now the phone it self is nice with more stuff coming to market lots of toys on there to play with
the G1 Neeeeeds an bigger battery it does charge fast but never realy get any more then 3-4 hrs out of it when the toys are turnd on (GPS wifi location G3 not even tryed BT yet) allso the CPU or the PMW i guess inside the phone gets warm when been charged or is under any type of load for an short time (bat stays cool) its very intresting these problems was not fixed at the start as its very notisable the to above problems the one below seems to be an problem with the modeling device that makes the back for the G1 white
the white case has got an design flaw that prevents the case from fully closing around where the SD card is it allso clicks an bit (the part where the USB connector is the back has got to much plastic that stopped the case from fully closing )
It's an obvious ripoff, available from www.solomobi.com amongst other places!
One way to tell
Won't someone check if the battery has any markings? That should prove it one way or t'other...
Obviously fake, as soon as it goes into the apps the UI is a clone of the iPhone one.
