Google phone is alive and real; HTC hot shots carry the Passion/Dragon
posted by Alan F. / Nov 18, 2009, 11:27 AM
In other Android news, Tech Crunch is reporting that the phone du jour that the big boys at HTC are carrying around for testing, is the Passion/Dragon that is heading to Verizon. As we previously reported, this is expected to be an Android version of the super spec'd HTC HD2 with a huge display and Snapdragon processor. The phone is supposed to be thinner than the DROID since it won't have a physical keyboard and the word is that it won't be too long until it is launched. Those Big Red customers who have been turning green with every HD2 video might be soon on the other end of that equation. So far, all we have seen of the device is a picture of an HTC display that is supposed to be that of the Passion.

Wonder why verizon would release what could be a better phone then the droid so shortly after droid release... I am getting a new phone for christmas, probably the droid, I would be kinda peeved if the Passion/Dragon comes out 31 days after...

I don't. But how could the Droid be better than what the Dragon/Passion is? The specs are ridiculous! Yes, same Software/OS, but the processor, the screen size and the fact that it is HTC makes all the difference in the world. There is no doubt that the Droid is a good phone. However, I think the Dragon/Passion is flagship for sure... enough to make me switch to Verizon to check it out.

I'm not sure if people have done full flashes of windows mobile handsets to run android natively. You can boot up android from the windows mobile file manager, there's a linux based program that you download onto your winMo device that boots android. Haven't seen clean winMo wipes though with android replacements. That would be SICK though!
