HTC Doubleshot for T-Mobile is believed to make an appearance at CTIA 2011

Although we’re hearing a new name right now for this device, it’s believed to actually be the HTC Pyramid which we first heard about back in February. In fact, that device was positioned to also arrive for T-Mobile and would pack Qualcomm’s third generation MSM 8260 Snapdragon processor – which is alleged to be a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU.
In any event, the only detail mentioned by the trusted source is that it’s definitely going to be eventually released with T-Mobile – and that it’s expected to feature Gingerbread as well. Moreover, some also speculate that the HTC Doubleshot name could also hint to it boasting dual displays of some sort. Nevertheless, with CTIA 2011 only weeks away, we’ll surely know more about it then.

it probably just references the fact that its the first dual core handset to drop (if its dropping soon that is)

The Motorola ATRIX 4G was the first dual-core handset to be available. The name certainly implies there's going to be TWO of something. What's that something? Interesting...

I can tell you a few things here about the Doubleshot here guys: 1) It IS the Pyramid and that name was never confirmed nor to be in existence. Was just a rumor. 2) HTC is copying Sprint here with the dual (DS) screen. The name Doubleshot all but gives it away. That and the name makes sense. 3) Will be out between April and May and priced at either $149.99 or $199.99 with a rebate (mail in). 4) Specs are correct except it will also have a FFC and flash. Also, 8 MP in back and 2 MP in front (Although the front can change). 5) HTC has said this is a new thing that they are trying. Basically this is an experimental phone. 6) May or may not be a 4G device. 7) Might have T Mobile TV on it as well as some other surprise goodies but that's not yet finalized. I will be at the show and will be at T Mobile's event.
