Leaked video of the HTC Dream running Google Android

Past the smegmous layer of Vaseline slathered all over the wobbling camera phone's lens, this frustratingly blurry video purports to be of Google's Android OS running on the HTC Dream. Nevertheless, it looks pretty good: the orientation control is amazingly snappy compared to the iPhone, although the touchscreen input looks a tad imprecise. And there's even a slide-out (possibly swivel) QWERTY keypad, making it look an awful lot like HTC's answer to the Sidekick. But the sexiness here is the OS, not necessarily the phone, and the OS looks very sultry indeed... a real challenger for the iPhone's, baked into a handset of perhaps more dubious quality.
