You know the drill. It's a RUMOR. But it's from a reliable source and
it's a follow up to something s/he sent me a month or so ago. So I'm
gonna post it and let you decide whether or not to believe it. Take it
with a whole can of Morton's Salt, as the saying goes.
If you believe the rumor, the next Android phone released on a US
carrier will be made by HTC and released by T-Mobile during the first
half of 2009. The device is code-named "Sapphire" and is more or less
similar in look and feel to the current HTC Touch HD (hence my earlier
post about the Touch HD actually being the "G2"). Sapphire features a
3"-plus touchscreen, a G1-esque trackball, 3G connectivity, a 5MP
camera, and myFaves support. No word yet on Wi-Fi or UMA
Like I said, this is just a rumor right now, so take it for
entertainment purposes only. Except, you know, when it comes true.
Then you can tell everyone you heard it here first. Well, except that
I think TmoNews already ran it ;-)
