Specs revealed for a pair of HTC devices running Android 2.2 from launch
A partial list of specs have been revealed for a couple of HTC phones. The HTC Bee is a low-range device that is expected to be launched by Verizon and Cellular South. While the handset is expected to be powered by Android 2.2 right out of the box, this Bee has a somewhat dull stinger with a Qualcomm MSM7626 chip in use, clocked at 528MHz. The QVGA display measures out to 3.2 inches, and there is a 5MP camera with AF and flash on board. There will be 512MB of ROM and 384MB of RAM under the hood and a 2GB microSD card pre-installed. No indication of pricing or launch date was revealed.

The HTC Lexikon is also expected to launch with Android 2.2 running the show. The Lexikon will be sporting a large WVGA 3.8 inch screen and features a slideout QWERTY keyboard. The Qualcomm MSM7630 Snapdragon processor will be handling the chores, but at a underclocked speed of 800 MHz. The shooter on back is also a 5MP camera and 512MB of RAM graces the device. Some have concluded that the Lexikon is the HTC Vision/G1 Blaze that is supposedly heading to T-Mobile, possibly to become the carrier's first HSPA+ enabled phone. While that might end up being true, we reported the other day that this model is now expected to answer to the name of the "G2". As with the Bee, we are left without an idea of pricing or release date.

The HTC Bee is gonna have an awful screen. 240x320 for a 3.2inch? Are you kidding me? Thats good for a 2 inch screen. Not a 3.2inch. Thats gotta be a mistake.

The MSM7630 processor in the Lexikon isn't a Snapdragon. MSM8X50 series of chips is Snapdragon, along with the next-gen MSM8672 dual-core chips. Just because it supports a maximum frequency of 1000 MHz doesn't make it a Snapdragon.

It's possible that the Bee is just another carrier's version of the Wildfire+Android 2.2. The specs on it are almost exactly the same. Same screen res., cpu, chipset, camera quality+flash, and RAM size. They seem to be identical besides the 2.2 preinstall on the Bee. Looking at the specs for the other one, I can't really tell which model that is most like. Possibly the g2 though it seems to be a downgrade from what would be put on a phone as anticipated as the g2. I can't think of any other HTC phones that run android and have QWERTY keyboards, at least physical ones.
