Android HTC Dragon, 4.3-inch WinMo Huashan tipped in Dopod roadmap

Android HTC Dragon, 4.3-inch WinMo Huashan tipped in Dopod roadmap

Talk of the HTC Dragon has been minimal since the Nexus One grabbed the limelight earlier this year, but a leaked Dopod roadmap for 2010 has reignited some of that old speculation.  According to their timetable, the Dragon is set to arrive in China come Q2 2010, complete with Android, a 3.6-inch WVGA display and HSDPA.  It'll have company, too; shortly after comes the A6388, a smaller, cheaper 3.4-inch HVGA HSDPA Android device.

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It’s a fan render]

HTC Trophy gets clearly pictured: QWERTY/touchscreen WinMo candybar [Update: It’s a fan render]

HTC's 2010 smartphone roadmap may have skewed heavily toward Android, but that wasn't to say the company were planning to abandon Windows Mobile altogether.  The first clear render of the HTC Trophy - a Windows Mobile 6.5 candybar with a 3-inch VGA capacitive touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard - has leaked, and despite the OS it looks to have potential.

Update: Too good to be true; this isn't HTC's work but that of ElCondor from xda-developers; somewhere along the line his watermark has been edited out.  He's done a great job, too: compare it to the fuzzy image in the leaked roadmap.  If the Trophy looks this good in real life, we'll take one! [Thanks Sohaib!]

T-Mobile USA HD2 gets memory boost; Euro model may miss WinMo7?

T-Mobile USA HD2 gets memory boost; Euro model may miss WinMo7?

US HTC HD2 owners could see their patience rewarded with boosted specifications when the Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone arrives on T-Mobile in March.  The official listing for the handset has gone live on HTC's site, and where the original European model packs a 512MB ROM and 448MB RAM, the US version will apparently get 1GB ROM and 576MB RAM.  That should mean the US-spec HD2 runs faster and has more room for onboard applications, as well as having longer-term implications for Windows Mobile 7 upgrades.

HTC HD2 SMS update: third time lucky?

HTC don't seem to be having much luck addressing the ongoing SMS problem some HD2 owners are experiencing.  After posting - and subsequently pulling - two firmware updates already, it's now time for the third attempt.  HTC HD2 firmware v1.66.707.1 is, like the others, intended to deliver "fast and reliable SMS messaging"; whether it does, we'll have to wait and see.

T-Mobile USA to offer HTC HD2 in March 2010?

According to a leaked ROM for the US version of the HTC HD2, it looks like T-Mobile USA have clinched the deal to offer the Snapdragon-based Windows Phone come Q1 2010.  Unsurprisingly there's no confirmation from the carrier themselves, but a still-in-testing ROM leaked to WMExperts contains various T-Mobile content.

Verizon Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Devour and LG VS750 tipped incoming

Details of Verizon's upcoming smartphones have leaked, and if you've been waiting for a new WebOS, Android or Windows Mobile device from the carrier then you're in luck.  The Palm Pre Plus, Motorola Devour A555 and LG VS750 have all been tipped as arriving over the next few months by PhoneArena's tipsters, though right now details on all three are reasonably minimal.  It's unclear, for instance, what the difference between the Sprint Palm Pre and the Verizon Palm Pre Plus might be.

Samsung Omnia II gets HTC Sense with new ROM [Video]

One of the aspects of the HTC HD2 we most enjoyed was its expansive, eye-catching HTC Sense UI, particularly the way the weather updates swim lazily across the homescreen.  If you've always wanted some Sense, but got sucked in by Samsung's hype machine about the Omnia II, fear not: you can now get a hacked ROM for putting the HTC interface onto your AMOLED Samsung.

HTC 2010 roadmap leaks: HTC Bravo 1GHz Android confirmed [Updated]

HTC's device line-up for the first half of 2010 has apparently leaked, courtesy of xda-developers, after a prototype brochure fell into the wrong hands.  The range consists of five Android devices and three Windows Mobile handsets, including the so-called hero model of 1H 2010, the Android-based HTC Bravo.  The Bravo will pack the same 1GHz Snapdragon processor as the HTC HD2 along with a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen and HD 720p video capture.  Full line-up details after the cut.

Updated: We've contacted HTC for a comment, and unsurprisingly they're not confirming anything.  "We cannot comment on speculation or rumour," HTC tell us, "but we’re excited about our upcoming roadmap and encourage you to watch this space."
