Watch the Android Announcement Live

We’ve heard months of buzz about the first Android phone — the T-Mobile G1, formerly called the Dream — and today, we finally get to see the thing for the first time.

Want to watch the Android announcement live for yourself? Go here at 10:30 a.m. ET today to check out the live news conference stream.

The latest rumor, by the way, is that the G1 will offer built-in Gmail access, without the need for a data plan of any sorts. The phone is expected to be on sale by October. Rumored prices put it at about $199 with a two-year contract.

The G1 design boasts both an iPhone-style touchscreen display and a swivel-out QWERTY keypad. It also has a “jog ball” that appears to have Blackberry-like navigation functions and also features an iPhone-like accelerometer.
