This phone looks amazing! Now the question is Motorola Droid, HTC Imagio, HTC Touch Pro 2, or HTC HD2?? Hmmm...

I know everyone has this thing about believing everything on the internet, but how do you know this is the Dragon/Passion? It could be a screen shot of the Eris for all anyone knows. There is no frame of reference to tell this is a 4.3inch screen.

Not to be a dick or spoil anybodies party but, this clock is on pretty much all HTC devices, not to mention there is absolutley no branding that says it is for Verizon, People have been sucked into the black hole that is the Verizon rumor mill. Sprint is currently testing a 3g/4g wimax android device and they have publicly announced that they will be working with HTC to develop new Android devices in 2010, I would also like to point out that the city in the picture is Baltimore which is the first city to launch wimax, now I am not a doctor but you know what I am saying right??

I believe the title of the article says: "Picture of Verizon's Passion/Dragon appears?" [notice the question mark] And then the first part of the paragraph says: "A picture of a handset screen is sending waves of excitement and anticipation throughout the rather large community of Verizon smartphone users. The photograph is certainly that of an HTC developed model that runs Android. The thinking is that this is the display of the Passion/Dragon, the super spec'd device that is the Android powered version of the drool forming HTC HD2." I know you guys have good reading comprehension, and I hope you guys are picking up that this article is just speculative talk, and that the only thing the article states is that this is a screen shot of an 'htc device', after that, everything is rumor talk. So why are some of you going crazy?

It's pretty ridiculous they are even eluding to it is why. The article could read - "New HTC RWANDA for Virgin Mobile??" It would be just as valid, er... irelevant, and unbelievable as this article. Would you believe it any more? Of course not. Point is, it shouldn't even be speculated to be with such scant proof. Poor news to say the least.

I'm just pointing out that the question mark in the title means whoever wrote the article doesn't know if it is or isn't, they're just sourcing that speculation from BGR, but if anyone actually reads the article, it doesn't say that the screen shot is anyting other than what it is-an htc device-and all that is in the first first couple or so sentences. The rest of the article is just info the Passion or w/e you would like to call it. Entertaining a stupid rumor or not entertaining a stupid rumor isn't the point here, the point is there's nothing wrong w/ the article, yet, everyone is acting like Phonearena is claiming w/ 100% proof that this is the Passion/Dragon...big ass android phone....but I digress...

That looks like a screen shot of the HTC Droid Eris... I was just playing with one today and it looks exactly the same.

It would not make a lot of sense for Verizon to release this device within 30 days of the launch of the droid with their 30 day wfg. With the expected stats of the dragon/passion, could you imagine all the returns they would get for the eris and droid. Does not sound like a good idea to me but who knows! and i agree that could be a pic of any phone!

IT'S A FAKE:http://macthemes2.net/forum/vi
It's def not an Eris cause the Eris has enough res to display "mostly cloudy" forecast on a single line and not two:http://www.androidcentral.com/ sites/androidcentral.com/files id-eris-gallery/droid-eris-01.jpg /articleimage/Dieter%20Bohn/20 09/10/dro

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. Where do you people get your information. THIS IS NOT VERIZON!! It's a GSM phone, do your homework. I'm quite sure Verizon will eventually come out with one similar. You just got the Droid, cool your jets Verizon Fan boys. Why you use verizon and it's high rates beats me, but quit spreading poor facts around. It's already been proven on other sites that this phone is NOT verizon. Do you research better.
