HTC Knight is a 4G QWERTY slider, runs Android 2.2

We just received some more information on the device known as the HTC Knight. In addition to a3.7-inch display, the HTC Knight will, in fact, sport a sliding QWERTY keyboard and 4G connectivity. The phone will also rock an 8-megapixel camera, and most excitingly, will possibly be powered by a dual core processor. Our source saw an early unit that had a 1GHz CPU, but he believes it’s possible there will be a dual core processor at launch. This seems to be Sprint’s version of the HTC Desire Z, as previously reported — and it’s not looking like a flagship phone at this point in time. If not, we have to wonder what else Sprint is cooking up right now.

Sprint's HTC Knight rears its beautiful head

Sprint's HTC Knight rears its beautiful head

What do we have here? The folks over at xda-developers have posted the above picture; an HTC Android phone purportedly named “Knight.” The phone rocks a 3.7-inch screen, akin to the Nexus One, and resembles a smaller EVO 4G with its four rounded soft-keys. The site’s source was unsure about an exact release date but does expect an official announcement “soon.” According to XDA, the phone sports a “hinge” of some sort; whether it’s a slide-out QWERTY, or a HTC Surround-esque speaker, remains to be seen. What are your thoughts on the 3.7-inch screen?

T-Mobile G2 hands on

T-Mobile G2 hands on

T-Mobile just hooked us up with a brand new T-Mobile G2, and we of course wanted to share some first impressions and photos with you. When you pick up the phone for the first time, it feels a bit heavy, but it’s a quality feeling of heavy and not something that you’re really going to care much about. The screen looks great, and being a Super LCD, it’s a little better than a normal LCD and a little worse in some ways than a Super AMOLED display. At 3.7″ we feel it’s the perfect size for maximum usability. Let’s flip to the keyboard… interesting. The hinge mechanism is pretty cool, basically it just springs into action and reveals a pretty spacious QWERTY keyboard. It’s clicky enough, and reminds us a little of the Touch Pro2, for better or worse. The device runs a 800MHz Snapdragon CPU, and while the clock speed is slower than the 1GHz and soon-to-launch 1.2GHz chips powering Android handsets, T-Mobile tells us that the chip is the first off of the new Snapdragon chip line up and it should be able to go head to head with the higher clocked devices. From our limited time using the device, we’d agree but we will follow up on that in our expansive review. For now, hit the gallery for all the sexy photos, and make sure you drop whatever questions you may have in the comments so we can try and answer them in our review!
