New picture makes HTC customers shout Bravo
Despite the HTC Bravo is sporting a 3.7-inch AMOLED capacitive display instead of the 4.3 inch massive slate of glass seen on the HD2, it seems that it will still be a pretty hot device. A new, more detailed image has shown up for all HTC fans to enjoy, so please, go on and take a close look at it. Under the hood, the Bravo shares the 1GHz Snapdragon chip with the HD2. The HTC Bravo is also equipped with an FM radio, a 5MP camera with AF and Video Capture at a 720p rate. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and memory expansion with a microSD slot are also part of what this handset is packing, all powered by a 1400mAh battery. Just for fun, the unit includes a digital compass and a 3.5mm audio jack. The recently leaked HTC roadmap calls for an April launch. Is this close enough to the HD2 to still make your mouth water?

The screen size is just fine. 3.7 is plenty room....3.5 is even acceptable

3.5 must be acceptable since so many people swear by their iPhones. lol

This phone is a let down!!! It's nice enough. I like the look and the 720p HD. But what happened to my 4.3 inch display?!!! I'm 6'2 and I have big hands! I was looking forward to a virtual keyboard with room for my fingers! This sucks!!! Probably still get it though! Life is but a dream! And so was the big expansive display!

Lmao dude I'm taller than you 6'4 240lb With long fingers and I have no problem typing on a 3.5 or 3.7 screen, agreed the 4.3 would be a nice welcome for people like us but we can get by with the other the other two size screens. P.S this was typed on a 3.5 iPod touch lol

this device just moved to the top of my Android phone list... i've been using a Telstra Touch HD for over a year, so form factor, screen size, etc. is perfect for my tastes. (hardware keyboard is not important to me). my hope is that it's available in a GSM 3G version, but i'll still consider purchasing even if it's on Verizon or Sprint. with xda-community support, this should be a fun toy to play with!!

considering that "powerhead" isnt even a word, hes wrong either way.

Meh, it seems this phone is strictly a power-head device. They could have had the style closer to the HD2, while still keeping the smaller screen, because at the end of the day, a bunch of kids love the look of the HD2, just not loving the WinMo. I mean, I wasn't wanting htc to just load the HD2 w/ Android, but they could have done something a bit closer to that HD2 sexyness. Oh well...

Anything less than the HD2 screen size seems like a let down.

I love how kids make these retarded comments that's pretty much them boasting how they have a particular device..

uhm thanks, i wasnt directing it to any specific person. how am i boasting. i got an upgrade, and im saying the phone is ugly. im talking about how all of you people cry about how the droid has a terrible keyboard. please do not comment if you have nothing sense-full to say. :)

the trackball on Android phone seems like a really good way to go, but i think it would be even better with a trackpad like the one on the BlackBerry Curve 8530 or the BlackBerry Bold 9700. I'm sure they were able to make the phone smaller using the trackball so I have no real gripes about it. All I know is that I will gladly start using this phone over my current Droid

I sure hope those "cosmetic" differences do not mean a 3.5 inch screen which would be a shame because of this phones potential

This is my next phone. Huzzah!

Engadget reporting that this is Verizon bound in January as the Passion with a few cosmetic differences but the same hardware specs. Let the countdown begin!

actually it doesnt say Verizon, but man i hope so!

You're right. "US bound" but I'm thinking that's probably T-Mobile and Verizon since they've both been rumored near term recipients.

I can live with the 3.7" screen but is this not a GSM device designed for T-Mobile? If so the title is misleading...

I was thinking the same thing but also you could have a larger display as well. Thank god it has a flash on the camera.

The specs are nice but the button layout fuglies it up. If you're gonna do a touchscreen I think it's best to skip physical buttons all together. They take away from the clean asthetic.
