HTC Pyramid, Prime, and Ignite renders break cover?Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content

Earlier this morning we saw three new Motorola handsets leak out, and now we're continuing the fun with some new HTC products. First up is the beefy HTC Pyramid, which Chinese site XDA.cn says is a 4.3-inch Android device with a 1.2GHz processor and 960x540 qHD display. The site also claims that the Pyramid is sporting 768MB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and, strangely, Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
Next is the HTC Prime, which, according to XDA.cn, is a Windows Phone 7 handset with a 3.7-inch 800x480 display, 512MB RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash.
Finallly, we have the HTC Ignite, which is another new Windows Phone 7 device that was spotted over at XDA.cn. They claim that the Ignite features a 3.7-inch 800x480 resistive touch display, 800MHz core, 512MB RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash. Of course, Microsoft's minimum required specs for WP7 Chassis 1 wouldn't allow an 800MHz processor nor a resistive touchscreen. While it's possible that someone got their wires crossed when learning of/reporting on the info, it's probably a good idea to keep a grain or two of salt handy.
Obviously, some of the specs supplied by XDA.cn are a tad suspect, so it may be a good idea to just leave them in the back of our minds for now and focus on the renders. The Pyramid looks a bit like HTC's ThunderBolt, at least in the front, but it also features capacitive buttons that look like the Incredible S. It looks like a pretty slick little handset, though, especially since that big display takes up so much of the device's face. The Prime reminds me a lot of the HTC 7 Pro/Arrive, which it very well could be a variation of, and the Ignite looks a lot like a Windows Phone 7-ified Nexus One. With CTIA right around the corner, I wouldn't be surprised if we learned more about all three of these devices soon, so stay tuned for all of our coverage of the show!
