UK newspaper The Telegraph is reporting that T-Mobile UK will be the exclusive carrier to supply the HTC Dream aka G1 in the country, with the Android-based smartphone set to go on sale as early as November. While the sources of the news are unclear, the basic premise is believable. Google has committed to Android devices being available in Q4 2008, and T-Mobile is believed to be preparing to sell the G1 in the US.
No suggestion has been made of the handset’s price, or whether specific tariffs will be rolled out for data access. T-Mobile UK currently offer a “web’n’walk” package for unlimited on-device mobile internet access, priced from £7.50 a month ($13). T-Mobile USA is rumored to offer two plans for the G1, one at $35 providing unlimited data & messaging, and a cheaper $25 plan that includes 400 messages.
