I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?

  1. I want a SUPERSONIC, lol.

  2. If they do have a phone codenamed the supersonic, it’s ‘official’ release name will probably be the Thunder!!

  3. htc phandroid

  4. i want pics of all of these phones!

  5. HTC Dream! I think I got that one :)

  6. Humn…

    “Over the next few weeks, Google Phones (most probably in early, prototype form) will flood the Mountain View campus. They’ll don large LCDs while running a new version of Android”



    Nice list there HTC… Wonder if half or more are on there way to Mountain View…

  7. At least that list tells us the HTC Passion’s & HTC Dragon are two different animals… And since there is only one Dragon.. Wonder if that = Open phone… or GPhone..

  8. Okay, we know the “C” on HeroC means CDMA (i.e. the Sprint Hero), and of course there’s the DesireC (Droid Eris on Verizon). But what the heck is the HeroCT? Also, notice that there’s Passion and PassionC in addition to Dragon. Could those actually be different models? Hmm, the plot thickens.

  9. I wonder how many actual devices there are. The dragon and two passions are rumored to be the same device (or variation of), maybe these are all the names that the different carriers will be using.

  10. “salty salt-kabob”


  11. no its kabob…man i hope some of these are for sprint and are packing snapdragon proecessors

  12. DesireC, NeonC (not listed here), and HeroCT were all listed in the HTC Hero kernel source code released in October on HTC’s website. Neon is supposedly the Touch Dual, which is pretty surprising (Touch Dual is originally a winmo device), so to see mention of MACH_NEONC in HTC’s kernel source code (even before the MACH_HEROC source code is out) is kind of a curveball.

    Also listed in the kernel source code (Makefile and/or Kconfig): Milan, Jade (those two are not listed here…), as well as: Memphis, Bahamas, Espresso

  13. Just played with the Espresso tonight. It’s a wider body Mytouch with a 4 row keyboard, running 2.1, going to be skinned with a Tmobile theme, gesture support. Believe me or don’t believe me, I dont care, I know the truth. Also, in other news, Google phone is real, GSM, multi-band (think Dragon, you are getting warmer!)

  14. Also, Espresso sports optical trackpad, 5 megapixel with flash. Commence drooling, Phandroids!

  15. both are correct…
    noun variant spelling of kebab .
    kebab |kəˈbäb| (also kabob)
    a dish of pieces of meat roasted or grilled on a skewer or spit.
    • [usu. with adj. ] a dish of any kind of food cooked in pieces in this way : swordfish kebabs.
    ORIGIN late 17th cent.: from Arabic kabāb, partly via Urdu, Persian, and Turkish.

  16. re: Espresso… The keyboard is impressive, if you like the G1’s spaced keys. Plenty of room between the raised keys, not like the Droid or the Clic. Good for your fat fingers.

  17. @Can’t tell you who I am

    Sounds good! Keep the info flowing :) Much appreciated.
    Care to leak more Dragon info?

  18. All I know about the Dragon/Google phone is Google will sell it, it will be an unlocked phone to run on multiple carriers. I think GSM only, if I heard right.

  19. HTC Halo thats fierce <3

  20. @ Can’t tell you who I am
    Could you please leak some info about the HTC Passion?

  21. Isnt HTC memphis the HTC lancaster which was discontinued… is it coming back or is this wrong?
