Our brethren over at DroidDog caught wind of an interesting and potentially exciting rumor that's just begging to be spread (and confirmed, of course). If there was an official scale of rumors (let's say 1-5 to make it easy), I'd have to give this rumor a two. Wondering why? You'll see as you read further.
According to Andrew Kameka of Androinica, there are three separate accountings from various contacts at T-Mobile that give reason to believe the HTC Desire is coming to Magenta. The contacts' stories are similar in that all say their managers attended training for phones coming down the pike and they "strongly suspect that the HTC Desire was one of those devices." The statements are the only "facts" we have, however, it was said that the phone is "awesome and it was Android," and that "it was all touchscreen and large."
What it breaks down to is that we really only know one thing (and this isn't particularly earth shattering news in itself) - that T-Mobile will be getting another Android device in the future. We also know that just about every carrier in the UK will be getting the Desire. Specifically, T-Mobile UK will be launching the Desire on March 26th, and while T-Mobile UK (or any other Deutsche Telekom variant) doesn't always carry the same phones as T-Mobile USA, we can certainly hope that the Desire will be one phone shared among siblings.
You gotta love the rumor mill. It may not churn out facts, but it's the source of much hope for us phone geeks. How would you rate this rumor on the rumor scale? Become a statistic below!
