HTC Android CDMA/GSM smartphone tipped for Verizon early 2011

An unnamed HTC smartphone with dual CDMA/GSM for the Verizon and Vodafone networks has leaked, believed to be on the way for a Verizon launch in early 2011.  The handset – which is currently running Android 2.2 – has a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard and is tipped to use a 1.2GHz processor, likely Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon.

The display, meanwhile, is said to be 4-inches, while a Vodafone SIM was spotted in the prototype.  No word on camera abilities at this stage, nor on memory or what version of Android the smartphone will launch with – with Gingerbread expected to debut before the end of the year, it's possible the HTC handset will arrive with that instead.
