When a phone manufacturer has a good thing going, they want to keep it going. That’s why ever since you’ve seen phones get more marketable names, manufacturers and carriers continue popular lines by making sequels and variations. For HTC, the Desire brand is one they obviously value an awful lot. They’ve got the HTC Desire, HTC Desire HD, HTC Desire Z and it appears now they may be prepping the HD Desire 2.
This rendered picture was “acquired” by PocketNow– how, I’m not exactly sure, so the validity of the image remains uncertain. But I do know that if it is indeed real, the HTC Desire 2 will look like a Black Nexus One, come with a front-facing camera, and drop the trackball or trackpad we’ve seen on some of their other devices including the first Nexus. The screen appears to be about 3.7 or 3.8 inches large but other details are sparse- all we’ve got is the image you see on the left, crossed fingers and misplaced prayers.
We, along with the rest of the tech blogosphere, reckon details might be uncovered at Mobile World Congress. We hope so!
