Do you remember back in February how we reported that the HTC Scorpion, an Android 2.2 device powered by a 1.5GHz, was headed for Sprint on accounts of of its WiMAX radio? Well apparently that information wasn’t entirely correct. According to conflipper, a fairly well known member of the dev community, the Scorpion is actually headed to Verizon. One thing that does strike us as very odd is that the same source also said that the Scorpion is headed to Bell. The thing is, Bell is unlikely to want anything to do with CDMA devices now that it has has its 21Mbps HSPA+ network up and running. If one assumes that previous rumors were wrong and that the Scorpion is indeed meant for Verizon, could it be that it is a dual-mode device which will also work on HSDPA carriers such as Bell?
