HTC's first half 2010 roadmap leaked?
Back in October, HTC released a roadmap of its handsets for the first half of 2010 at a meeting in Vienna. Now, the information has been leaked and we can show you what HTC has been working on for next year's first 6 months. The phones have been classified by different categories. For example, under "Design", we have the HTC Legend and the HTC Salsa. Both are Android devices with the latter due out in June 2010 and the former in March 2010.

The next category has the heading "Social". It is there that we find the HTC Tide and the HTC Buzz with release dates set for April and May 2010, respectively. Both units are powered by Android.

The last of the Android devices, the HTC Bravo, is listed under the category of "Performance". It seems to be in the right section considering it will be sporting a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 3.7 inch AMOLED WVGA display, feature video capture at 720p, and come with a 16GB microSD card out of the box. April 2010 is the expected launch date.

The "Productivity" section has three Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets, the HTC Photon, the HTC Trophy and the HTC Tera. The Photon should be out in April 2010 with the Trophy launched in May 2010. No date has been seen for the release of the Tera.

A lot could change between now and the actual release of any of these handsets. It presents a fair balance between Android and Windows Mobile devices and there seems to be a strong desire to support the social networking sites. Any of these models stand out as something that you really gotta have in 2010?

Maybe a slim touch hd 1 with a 1ghz clean 5 meg cam android or wm 6.5 or 7 touch flo 2.6, 3.6 to 4.0 inch screen. The phones I see here don't really turn me on maybe somethings missing .

i love htc, the way it makes its phones, the way it wants a phone that actually gets us. but the phones they are making are somehow disappointing, but i believe its one of those saying that you cant judge a book by its cover deal things. i wanted a phone that looked stylish as the original htc hero and fast typing of the htc touch pro 2. not like the g1 but the touch pro 2s keyboard under the chin as well, so my thumb can actually type better. going to be hard but i thought htc could pull it off. the only ones i like from this selection is the bravo, legend, and buzz, and tera. the legend looks like the htc eris w/o trackball which i kind of find disappointing. the bravo looks alright, but it doesnt have the sense ui. and the buzz, well, it doesnt look as great to me as the original hero but i would buy it. but it does look alright. but i still dont get why there is no snapdragon processors at all. and the tera, it looks like a downgrade form the htc touch pro 2. 4 row keys. im guessing htc is planning for the original consumer this year, which kinda blows since i wanted a cool great one. i hope they make better phones next quarter.

I like the look of Legend, it's just looks like a Hero, but I like the look of the Hero more, it's just the OLED screen of the Legend and the 600 MHz processor that would make the Sense UI even more entertaining to use. I just don't like how they are reducing all the WinMo screen sizes, the Tera which is supposed to be Pro3, has only a 3.0" screen and a 4-row QWERTY!! Why?! The Bravo is good with those specs, but a 5.0 MP cam sounds outdated, even with HD recording, and it seems to be running TouchFLO not Sense!! Can't get why?! Sense is way to better, specially for Android!

buzz and salsa look good, but they pretty much shot the rest to poop.

the TP2 doesnt sell that well. maybe they are shrinking it to reduce cost so its not priced so far above other handsets that work better anyways. I just want a slim 4.5-5inch amoled touch screen Android phone with a 2000mhz++ battery, snapdragon, 8mp++ camera w/flash and GOOD camera app (megapixels dont mean squat if the app that uses the camera sux!!), and a gig or more of system/onboard/app ram... and of course expandable to 32gb or higher. Give me base android so its easy to hack and ill prob not buy another phone for quite some time. oh and NOT a glass screen so it doesnt shatter so darn easily! lol

Design wise, I love htc right now, I want to save up to get the HD2, but I might have to wait and see what's available for the States next year. I guess I'm the only person who hopes htc doesn't go over 4'' w/ their displays-4'' is the perfect size for a display that'll still enable the phone to be pocket-able and keeping a sexy profile. I, myself, am content w/ a 3.2'' or even 3.5'' screen, I don't want to feel like I'm making a grand announcement to the world every time I pull my phone out. So I'm thankful that, so far, htc is keeping compact profiles. 'Legend' is by far my fave- the perfect successor to the Hero- replacing the track ball w/ a track pad, softening the lines up a bit, and adding much needed flash for the camera. I do wish the processor was a bit more beefy, but I'd still be happy.
