Official: T-Mobile to premiere Android on Sept. 23

An independent Android developers' blog reports having received an official invitation from carrier T-Mobile to cover a press conference in New York City Tuesday morning, where the first Android-powered phone will be unveiled.

A screenshot of the invitation appears on Android Authority this afternoon.

Earlier this morning, UK time, during a session for Google's "Developer Day" world tour in London that had not appeared on the official schedule, Google developer advocate Mike Jennings reportedly demonstrated a fully working prototype of Android running on a touchscreen phone. Though a piece of tape was used to mask the phone's branding, its shape and size were almost unmistakably identical to an HTC Dream, a phone which could sell for as little as $149 during a limited-time promotion.

BetaNews has inquired with T-Mobile for more information, though we frankly don't expect to get much more before Tuesday.
