HTC DoubleShot User Agent Tells of Gingerbread, QWERTY Keyboard


We’ve been waiting a long time to hear more about the HTC DoubleShot, a dual-core phone that was rumored back in early March for T-Mobile. All we knew of then was a name, but a user agent file for the device has surfaced and gives us a bit of an idea of what to expect. Firstly, it’ll run Android 2.3 – we’d be alarmed if it didn’t if the summer launch we’re hearing is true.

Other details revealed include a hardware QWERTY keyboard which we imagine shouldn’t be too different from the one found on the G2. We’re expecting it to be a high-end device – namely one with a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor by Qualcomm. Other murmurs suggest it’ll be a 3D device, hence its name – you’re “shooting” two pictures at once. Let’s hope some pictures of the thing turn up before too long. [PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I want this on Sprint! I love my EVO but I wish it had a QWERTY slider.

    1. evo shift ? or not really into that one haha?

      1. Just wait for the sprint version. Shift was basically the G2 without that horrible hinge no offense but its pretty bad for alot of people. It shal be named the EVO Shift 3D

  2. T-mobile again?? Really???

    1. They agreed to host the G1, so you know they’re down for Android like four flat tires, baby!

  3. Yes!! I found my successor to the G2!!

    1. And it will be called the T-mobile G3D.

  4. Interesting…. I wonder how it will compare to the G2x and the Sensation.

  5. where is verizon’s dual core htc phone with the latest version of sense?

    1. THIS

  6. I’m gonna guess at a myTouch 4G Slide…hope I’m wrong.

  7. Double shot of whiskey

  8. i hope this all turns out to be true. a dual core phone with physical keyboard. i hope it has hdmi out and an ffc.

  9. EVO Shift 3D/G2 3D…place your bets!

  10. 4.3, ffc, vanilla android and they have a winner!

  11. Definitely gonna be a successor to the MyTouch 3G Slide. Its codename was the HTC Espresso. It’s only logical that the HTC Doubleshot would be a follow up. Especially since the Slide was released in June. IDK, if it was just a Sensation with a keyboard then I might have to skip the Sensation :X

  12. Tmobile is coming up in the Android game… HTC Sensation 4G is right for me though
