HTC Accord spotted in the wild, headed to Verizon

Windows Phone 8 smartphones on September 19, and the rumored HTC Accord (likely just a codename) is among them. What we think we know about this handset is that it lacks a microSD card slot, yet should be able to take impressive photos with its 8-megapixel camera. We also know what the smartphone might look like, based on the image that was leaked not long ago.
Phone 8 on board and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, just like the remainder of WP8 handsets scheduled to launch before the year's end.But if you need an even more solid proof revealing the looks of the HTC Accord, look no further than this photo that just arrived in our inbox, courtesy of an anonymous tipster. The smartphone is branded for Verizon and has support for the carrier's 4G LTE network, he also adds. Without a doubt, the HTC Accord will ship with Windows
So if you are interested to learn more about the HTC Accord, stay tuned as the device is very likely to be announced officially tomorrow, alongside a couple of Windows Phone 8 siblings. The HTC event begins at 11:00 AM EST, and we'll be reporting all about it.
Thanks for sending this in!

Looks like Samsung Omnia/Samsung focus flash to me.

Why do they insist on making WP phones so garish and gaudy, with the bright color bodies, etc...I mean, I know they have no choice with the UI, but they could make the exteriors more refined and better looking.

They tried that with all of their previous WP7 phones and no one bought them. I liked the quality of those phones (HTC Trophy, HTC Surround, HTC HD7, HTC Titan, HTC Titan 2, HTC 7 Pro) But if no one is buying and saying the hardware isn't unique enough then they change and people complain they have changed too much. Seems HTC cant please everybody. Though im not a huge fan of color I like the way this phone looks actually.

I'm glad WP8 is going the way of attractive colors, aside from the black and white of phones the world over! Black and white phones are so two years old and we are now moving towards 2013!
