It isn’t often that mention of a new phone comes straight from the horse’s mouth, but it’s been discovered that the HTC Mecha has shown up on HTCSense.com as one of the available phones with the newest version of HTC Sense. If you think back to August, the Mecha was one of four codenames in a massive codename drop (along with the HTC Speedy that looks to be headed for Sprint.)
Judging by the thumbnail on the site, the Mecha can be described as looking like a T-Mobile G1 with a larger screen. The groove between the display and the set of controls (which looks to include a trackball instead of the now-popular trackpad) could suggest that it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.
I’m getting ahead of myself, though. It’ll be fun to see what this device turns out to be and where we’ll see it launched. It’s worthy to note that the other two phones with the latest version of HTC Sense – the Desire HD and the Desire Z – have only been released in Europe thus far. Other than that, we have no clue. What do you think?
