A healthy portion of T-Mobile’s 2011 device roadmap has purportedly been revealed, shedding light on a few previously unknown smartphones. Not much information is available surrounding the previously unknown devices beyond a codename and some speculation, but T-Mobile subscribers should find a morsel here and there to get excited about. Hit the break for the rundown. More →
HTC is circulating the above invite to members of the press taunting them to visit London on September 15th to see exactly what they’ve “dreamt up.” We’re secretly hoping that this will be the unveiling of the company’s first Windows Phone 7 handheld, but we have a feeling that it may be a little early for WP7 just yet; in that case this probably is a new Android device (hopefully not just for those folks who live across the pond). Rumored HTC devices on the table thus far are the Vanguard/Vision, Desire HD, Glacier, Schubert, and Mozart. Any guesses and/or preferences as to what HTC might have in store for us?
The folks over at alienbabeltech.com have been doing some serious sleuthing. While looking at the GLBenchmark 1.1 database, they discovered a phone with very impressive stats that until now was virtually unknown, the HTC Glacier. The phone’s benchmarks are quite impressive, nearly 3x faster than the 1 GHz EVO 4G in some instances, which leads the author to believe that this phone has been manufactured with some sort of dual-core processor (perhaps the Qualcomm chip that was announced back on June 1st). The blog assumes that the device will be carried by vendor T-Mobile as the device was tested by a person with the username “mbibik”; a user who has only tested T-Mobile devices in the past and who has a LinkedIn page that says he works for T-Mobile (he has since made his employment details private). Other things discovered in the documentation include: the device will run the Android OS, have OpenGL 1.1, and have a screen resolution of 800 x 480. After compiling all of this, the blog hypothesizes that the rumored “Project Emerald” from T-Mobile is actually the dual-core, Android powered, HTC Glacier. What do you think, believable?
