The first ever Android phone renders exposed

Android phones have been on the market for over 14 years. The first ever Android phone was launched in 2008, a year after the first iPhone was introduced. It was the HTC Dream, also known as the T-mobile G1. However, the rendering of what could be the first ever Android phone was designed five months before the original iPhone was launched. Rich Miner, the co-founder of Android, shared the rendering of the first Android phone on the social networking site.

The renders shared by Miner show a black and neon colored phone that looks similar to the original HTC Dream, but it has a sling keyboard and physical buttons. The leaked device packs more of a punch than the HTC Dream's understated final look, with its prominent neon-green keyboard.

The display has a Google logo in the top left corner, also in neon. It also has a tap wheel that could have been used for navigation. Instead, the HTC Dream received a trackball.

The phone's design includes more buttons in a number of places overall. At the bottom of the phone there is an email and "@" symbol key, as well as answer, reject, home and back buttons. The HTC Dream, on the other hand, has only five buttons.

Miner said they were working on two phones at the time." Sooner," a BlackBerry-like phone, and the "Dream." However, after the launch of the iPhone, the company abandoned the "Sooner" and redoubled its efforts to develop the "Dream.
