HTC holding a media event in London on October 6?
Mere hours are what separates us from the mysterious HTC media event, which is scheduled to take place in New York City tomorrow. Pretty much nobody can tell what the company has put on the agenda for the day, but the Taiwanese manufacturer is expected to treat the audience to something pretty exciting. A new Android smartphone, a Mango handset, and even a revamped HTC Sense version are all among the possible candidates for unveiling.

However, another media event is said to be planned for a little over two weeks in the future, and details around it are just as scarce. Reportedly, the guys over at SlashGear have been invited to an HTC media event in London, which is scheduled for October 6. Still, no details as to what is going to be announced at the event have been given, but according to rumors, the HTC Vigor might be unveiled on that very day.

Judging by the hardware that it presumably will pack, the HTC Vigor is expected to be the company's next flagship device. A 4.3-inch display with the impressive resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels is what will make the handset stand out of the crowd, and a 1.5GHz dual-core chipset will be providing the smartphone with processing power.

Of course, let us not forget that seeing the HTC Vigor on stage next month is just a speculation. On the other hand, if the rumor turns out to be on the right track, seeing the mighty smartphone hitting the shelves on October 13, as leaks indicate, would seem a lot more plausible.

I really don't think so Peter, now you may be on to something with that WebOS rumor though! We will just have to wait!

You're right at the moment we will have to wait and see what happens with HTC. One thing i'm pretty certain of though, is that HTC will be looking to move away from Android to another OS. So bada might be a opotion for HTC, that would be great for the bada ecosystem.

None of the manufacturers are interested on bada right now since the OS is yet to be proven on a global scale. Give bada a rest my friend. It will have its time to shine, but not now.

If ever... reminds me of a friend who in 1994 claimed OS/2 Warp was the wave (pun intended) of the future that would sweep the PC landscape and kick out MS-DOS/Windows once and for all.

Move away from Android? That talk is rubbish... RUBBISH I tell ya. Android has helped bring them to where they are now, and as Android continues to goblle up market share, and there are no other serious OS's out there other that IOS and Windows Phone which is still in it's infancy, there's a long way to go to move away. Plus, their Sense skin/interface typically gets more acclaim (and reasons for purchasing HTC phones) than many other bothces vendors put on their phones. Give me a compelling logical reason why they would move away... and please don't suggest it's because of Motorolla aka... Googlerolla.

Amen. HTC may have made a name for itself with WP6 phones, but its most iconic and successful series (EVO, Droid Incredible) are all Android. They're no more likely to abandon their bread and butter OS than Samsung or LG. And despite Peter's wildest dreams, even Samsung isn't going to abandon Android for bada as long as they're still making money with it. Most likely this event will only introduce more powerful HTC Android devices.

Hey peterfromsweden, what's wrong with you man? every word from you has bada in it. I have a question for you, are you a member of bada development team? I agree bada is a fairly good os but it is not good as much as android or symbian does.
