When we first heard about the “Dream G2” Android Phone coming from China we immediately pegged it as a super cheap knock off that was trying to leech off HTC’s “Dream” and T-Mobile’s “G1” name. And although we still think the naming is a cheap way to steal the spotlight, we now have a video of the device in action that proves that it’s real and not just a hoax:

It seems to work well but the addition of a stylus and subtraction of physical keyboard is somewhat puzzling. I’m not a big stylus fan though. We also see a power source in the shape of a big, goofy android robot character that gives the phone an “official” feel. Although, being in China and all, getting something like that independently manufactured would probably come on the cheap.

So what do you think of the Dream G2? It’ll probably be a China only occasion but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it!

As a side note, either its a female recording this video or someone has a disgustingly long thumbnail that makes me think their android dungeon doubles as a cocaine warehouse. Nasty!
