The Android phone was released just 10 years ago, and there are features from that first release that people still use. It’s incredible to think that the HTC Dream has morphed into a phone system that so many people use today. CNET took a look back at how the release of the Android phone changed everything.
Known as the T-Mobile G1 in the United States, the Dream had an inauspicious first launch. People didn’t like the keyboard and thought it was clunky. It was hard to type on, and there was no headphone jack or virtual keypad. But it did change the smartphone world forever.
