Rumor mill: HTC Dream details leaked?

TmoNews leaks a few details about the HTC Dream, which seem realistic, but it could be just a rumor

TmoWorld has just published a slew of specs and pricing information about the HTC Dream, most of which has yet to be confirmed. Despite it bordering on rumor territory, the information bears mentioning, if only because it does sound pretty plausible.

First, TmoWorld claims that the launch date is October 13, 2008, with preorders available starting September 17 (preorders are purportedly only available to existing customers with a good history and can only be done online). Second, unlimited data and messaging will apparently cost $35 a month, and the Dream itself is priced tentatively at around $199.

And here are the leaked specs: Full QWERTY keyboard; 3G/Wi-Fi; full HTML browser; easy access to Google apps, maps (with Street View); YouTube; IM and text; e-mail; 3-megapixel camera; video playback; a music player plus a memory card slot; and an application store. In other words, the specs sound exactly like the ones on the prototype models we saw a while back.

Of course, this is all rumor and hearsay at this point, but seeing as the FCC documents were revealed recently, I think we'll be seeing a lot more of these "leaked details" coming forth between now and the actual launch date.
