HTC Espresso proves to be a QWERTY keyboard packin' Hero?
It's nice when things fall perfectly into place. Take the HTC Espresso, for instance. Not yet introduced to the public, Espresso  is actually one of the possible names for future HTC devices found embedded on a ROM. We told you all about it yesterday. But we digress. While no true pictures of the model exist, according to information pulled from an HTC profile obtained by, the device is actually a GSM version of the HTC Hero with a landscape sliding QWERTY keyboard. Like the Hero, the Espresso has a ARMv6 chip that most likely is the same MSM7200 seen in other of the Taiwanese firm's units. This processor has been clocked at 528MHz. While the Espresso's screen size has not been mentioned, the 320 X 480 resolution matches the Hero. Yes, trying to be a Hero usually is a positive thing. In this case, we are actually adding something to the equation. If the Espresso does come to market in the form we expect, it would be HTC's second side sliding Android phone following the G1.

lol I like how they photoshop the tp2 keyboard and added the hero on top, this is not the final model it would be hard to have that chin with a keyboard unless they are trying to make another g1 lmao

They definitely did within the first few sentences bro. "While no true pictures of the model exist" plus the fact that in brith orange right above the article it says "this article contains unofficial information". Good eyes.

I picture the same style as the international Hero, minus the chin, w/ the screen a lil more centered. Not bad...

Easy, kids will still buy it. I'd buy it, but that's just because I'm not one to run more than one app at a time. In reality, the only thing that I might do simultaneously is have music going while doing w/e else I'd be doing.
