By the late ’90s, the iPhone and its accompanying iTunes store had become ubiquitous.
Consumers had grown weary of the lack of a real-time, local, and personalized search option, so they embraced the idea of a remote, local phone.
And by 2002, that remote phone was the HTC Dream, a phone that could connect to a living room, TV, or computer.
It also offered a wide range of local services, like playing games and reading.

When the Dream 2 was released in 2011, it became the first smartphone to offer a wide selection of local and online services, as well as an integrated web browser and an HDMI port.
But HTC didn’t do things well in its first few years.
One of the problems with the Dream was that the phone’s built-in camera was very slow to respond.
HTC’s engineers had to develop a workaround, which was to turn the camera off when the phone was turned off.
But this wasn’t a straightforward hack.
Instead, HTC engineers had the camera switched on when the device was connected to a PC, and then turned off again when the smartphone was connected back to the PC.
When the Dream became a mainstream phone, it also came with a small, but annoying, remote dialer.
HTC eventually redesigned the phone to offer better control over the remote dial, which now allowed users to make calls, play music, or navigate the web.
It wasn’t until 2013, when HTC released the HTC One, that HTC’s remote dial system was integrated into the phone itself.
In 2014, HTC released a cheaper and more powerful version of its Dream phone.
The One would eventually become the company’s flagship smartphone, and one of its most successful, winning over customers and critics alike.
The Dream is now back with a new model, the HTC Desire, which has become one the top-selling phones of all-time.
But that phone is no longer as popular as the original, and its successor, the Desire C, hasn’t been as successful.
It’s worth remembering that the Dream phone was a very good phone at its time, and was an amazing value.
It was the first Android phone to be sold in the US, and the first to include a full-screen display.
It could connect with virtually any computer, including Apple’s iPad, and had a fantastic keyboard and trackpad.
But the phone also offered little local services or local music services.
It didn’t offer any video-streaming or voice-calling features.
And despite its huge success, the Dream did not always stand out as a compelling device.
The Dream was one of those phones that people were really, really unhappy with.
