HTC Vision could be the G1 Blaze for T-Mobile
Early this month, we had a photograph to show you of the HTC Vision, which appears to be a physical QWERTY packin' version of the HTC Desire .A nice surprise for your late Sunday viewing, an HTC Vision all dressed up wearing the T-Mobile brand. As far as the specs are concerned, you can round up the usual suspects-a 1GHz processor and 3.7 inch WVGA display and Android 2.1. What is unclear is if the T-Mobile branding represents the European carrier or T-Mobile U.S.A. and if it is the latter, perhaps this is the HSPA+ device that has been the topic of speculation. No word on a possible launch date or pricing but there is talk that the phone will be dubbed the G-1 "Blaze".

if i remember correctly... desire already had a relatively good size screen no need really... a full keyboard i only fear that it would make it more bulky...

for such a good sized phone thats a pretty shitty keyboard, for real. 3.7 inch screen with a keyboard designed for a 2.7inch phone!?!?

DOES IT have a front facing camera for video calling? cuz that wud be awesome :D if it did ,im pretty sure since its hspa + it would be able to handle video calls without a problem, i have a question i KNOW THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS ARTICLE but if someone knows the answer please explain to me,, ok my friend has an evo and he lives in a place were there is no sprint 4G and well he showed me that he can make video calls with 3G and from what i heard before cdma 3G networks cannot make video calls because they can not use voice and data at the same time , so how it that possible that he can make calls on 3G ???????? becuz obviosuly he was using sprints 3G cdma network because theres not 4G in his area.. so yea im confused? how is that possible? he showed me the video call quality and it looked pretty dam good ... thnkz

cdma isn't 3G. cdma networks like verizon use different signals for 3G like verizons EV whatever its called, and I don't know what sprint uses but you can make video calls over it

EVDO rev A, is what a CDMA network uses for 3g data. Verizon and Sprint use the same tech. Tmo and ATT use the same tech (GSM) data and cell signals are not the same. they are seperate. Which app was he using to make the call? And are you sure he wasnt tricking you by being on WiFi? My understanding is that it wouldnt work on a 3g signal, only wimax or wifi. Have they changed that?

Sprint uses EVDO rev A as their 3G, for data, when the Evo makes a VOICE call it switches to 1x RTT for the voice, if you're making a video call, it does it all over the data network, kinda like a webcam chat on your computer, they simply reccomend you use 4G because it gives you a better connection.
