In general, the HTC G1 is considered the first Android phone in history, but it’s not. Before the launch of the HTC G1, Google had launched a full-keyboard phone with Android, codenamed Sooner. The prototype recently popped up on eBay and sold for $195 (about 1,400 yuan).
The TI OMAP 850 SoC, 64RAM memory, 320×240 resolution, 1.3 megapixel camera, 960mAh battery, and 2G network support are available on The Sooner.
It’s important to note that Sooner doesn’t have a touch screen, doesn’t support Wi-Fi, has a more overall style than a BlackBerry product, and features a very rudimentary Android system.
In fact, that’s why Google abandoned Sooner, and after watching the iPhone and iOS, google decided to abandon its outdated small-screen design in favor of the HTC G1.
Merchandise page information shows that this batch of Sooner is put more than 10 years of inventory, batteries may have problems, and even the machine itself may have a problem, suitable for the collection of users to stay as a souvenir.
