HTC Liberty/Intruder makes a small cameo appearance in a video for AT&T's testing lab
Verizon isn't the only one who has everyone guessing at the name of one of its upcoming handsets, but AT&T is at it as well. We've been hearing a lot about an Android handset going by the name HTC Aria that's headed for AT&T, but just like so many unannounced handsets, it has undergone a few name changes over a short period of time. It was then believed that this Android set was going to be named the HTC Liberty, which happened to be captured on camera, but then the HTC Intruder moniker popped up in a RadioShack inventory system. Whatever it's going to be called, this Android handset had a small cameo appearance in a video that showed off the inner workings at an AT&T lab facility where phones are put through rigorous testing. Even though it didn't have too much face time in the video, you can clearly see that the Sense UI is running on the handset and looks to be similar to the rendered image that has been associated with the HTC Liberty. Aside from that, the video demonstrates the process that most phones have to go through before it can shed its roots and take its flight into the mobile world.

ool - I hope it is a 1GHZ, 512 MB RAM, 5MP+ camera with FLAS and ANDROID 2.1 phone....AT&T needs that to keep me from buying a phone that I really do not want to buy, but may buy....IPHONE IV - STEVE JOBS is back and this time the resolution is sharper than meets the eye......

lol yeah I'm in the same boat. I really want to get an Android phone, but I sure as hell don't want the backflip. I want some high end hardware!! I already have an iPhone 3G, so I know what it's about, and I'll get the iOS4 update. So I really don't need/want to get the iPhone4...but I may end up getting it if there's no good androids on ATT by the end of the month

Actually, there is an article out from an expert on screen resolution and the human eye's capabilities that refutes Mr. Job's contention. It is actually very specific and direct and makes you wonder why people can't just tell the truth instead of "spinning" everything. It's a great display. Why call it into quesiton with comments like that that are just plain wrong????

You're right and wrong tbar "But not so fast, says Phil Plait from Discover, whose résumé includes calibrating a camera on board the Hubble space telescope. He's done the math too and finds that the 477 number applies only to people with perfect vision. For the vast majority of us, Steve's claim stands up to scrutiny; even folks with 20/20 eyesight wouldn't be able to tell where one pixel ends and another begins. So it turns out Apple can do its math, even if its marketing isn't true for every single humanoid on the planet. " - Engadget

He didn't lie. That article used the wrong math. You people believe anything anti-Apple.

I love it when people read about a phone, other than iphne, and then someone mentions the iphone, and a whole lot of people post negative stuff - the power of subliminal messages is strong....
