Although this device in the video seems real enough, there are some downright interesting (and even strange) features in this alleged Chinese Android Dream G2 phone. The green 'droid charger seems a bit too cartoon-ish (albeit cute) for those of us in the States, but could be very popular in the Asian markets. It's also a bit hard to accept the addition of a stylus when T-Mobile's G1 has taught us to use our fingertips. Then again, if this device is without a slideout keyboard and a user wishes for another option besides a software keyboard for input, the stylus could make sense. The video also shows the user implementing the stylus with handwriting recognition - Graffiti?
The multimedia capabilities of the phone in this video are on display with a movie sample and some music. The stylus is used throughout for navigation - again, a bit puzzling in my mind and seems a little like a step backward. The stylus could be dispensed with altogether if the software keyboard is on par with the likes of the iPhone, but having a keyboard of that quality may be difficult with the choice of a resistive-touchscreen, which may very well be the type of screen used in this new device. Thanks very much to Tallbruva for the heads-up on this video!
