scorpionNot a great deal is known about the HTC Scorpion, the mysterious handset presumed to be running on a 1.5 Ghz processor and Android 2.2. Actually, aside from those facts the only other thing that could be discerned from a build file uncovered last February was that the phone would also include WiMAX support.

Then why did the title of this article say it was going to Verizon, whose 4G network is based on LTE? Well, I can’t really answer that, but a “well-informed source” has assured MobileCrunch that this is the case. And by “well-informed source” we mean the ROM hacker known as coinflipper.

So it’s a rumor, but an interesting one nonetheless. We known Qualcomm just announced their even faster Snapdragon variants that should be able to reach speeds of 1.5Ghz, and Android 2.2 is more of a reality than ever, so at the very least we can say the Scorpion itself has the potential to be a killer handset. Where it ends up and when that will happen…we will just have to wait and see.
