HTC Dream: First Android phone in Asia via Singtel

 

Singapore, February 2009Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel) and HTC Corporation unveiled the first Android™ powered mobile phone released in Asia – the HTC Dream™. Customers of SingTel and its wholly-owned subsidiary in Australia, Optus, will soon be the first in Asia to enjoy this highly anticipated device.

"We are delighted to work with Google and HTC to be the first operator in Asia to bring the HTC Dream to our customers." said Yuen Kuan Moon, SingTel’s Chief of Consumer and CEO of SingTel Mobile. "This Android-powered mobile device and its range of popular Google applications and other multimedia-rich software will redefine our customers’ mobile phone experience. Coupled with SingTel’s unrivalled 3G mobile network, our customers can enjoy the full potential of the Internet with just a Dream phone in their hands."

"We’re thrilled to see the mobile ecosystem in the Asia Pacific region embracing the Android platform.  The openness that has shaped the Internet and driven innovation is now coming to mobile devices," said Daniel Alegre, Vice President, Sales and Operations – Asia Pacific, at Google. "The HTC Dream offered through SingTel will transform users’ mobile web experiences and provide an open platform for the next wave of exciting applications."

The HTC Dream features a rich HTML e-mail client, which seamlessly syncs your e-mail, calendar and contacts from Gmail as well as most other POP3 or IMAP e-mail services. The HTC Dream multi-tasks, so you can read a Web page while downloading your e-mail in the background and also combines Instant Messaging support for Google Talk™. With access to high-speed Web browsing and a 3.2 megapixel camera with photo-sharing capabilities, the HTC Dream is ideal for balancing a busy lifestyle, whether sharing pictures, checking the latest sports scores or accessing social networking sites and most importantly, multi-language reading in English, Chinese and Japanese.

The HTC Dream offers access to Android Market, which hosts many popular and unique applications from developers around the world. – via singtel.com
