By now I'm sure we've all heard that HTC will be holding a little shindig in London on September 1st where it'll be showing us all "what's next." There's been a lot of speculation as to exactly what HTC's got up its sleeve for the event, including devices like the Puccini/Jetstream and Vigor, but a new report from BGR claims that it'll actually be Windows Phone that's in the spotlight. The site's source believes that HTC will be unveiling two new Mango-powered Windows Phone devices on September 1st: the HTC Eternity for AT&T and the HTC Omega for T-Mobile. We're hearing conflicting reports on the screen sizes for both devices — a previous report claimed that the Eternity will have a 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display and the Omega will have a 3.8-inch SLCD, BGR's reporting that they'll be 3.7 and 4.5 inches, respectively — but other rumored specs for the two handsets include 1.5GHz processors and 8-megapixel cameras.

As exciting as it would be to see HTC pull some new Android phones out of its hat on September 1st, we'll be glad to see some high-end Windows Phone devices make their debut at the event, especially considering how long it's been since we've seen some truly new WP7 hardware. Of course, no matter what HTC unveils in London next week, you can be sure that we'll be bringing you all of the news as it happens. Oh, and we've reserved some space in the comments for you Windows Phone fans to do a little happy dance. Go ahead and let loose.
