The folks over at 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?
