Finally, image of the Verizon-branded HTC Touch Pro2 has finally been leaked, although the source didn’t stop there. We also got a snapshot of what was said to be the Sony Ericsson Kokura – a 12MP phone that looks exactly as the Idou. It is not certain whether or not this is the same phone or an American version, which would be way better.

The same source also sent us an image of the black and white version of HTC Cedar for Alltel.

The BlackBerry Onyx, which we expect to see on AT&T, has been pre-reviewed by CrackBerry. The new smart phone is smaller than the Bold and features a number of cool upgrades.

The first images depicting the BlackBerry Curve 8530 (aka Aries) have recently appeared in public as well. This one is said to be a CDMA version of the 8520 Gemini that will also be available on AT&T.

We also found a little something for the luxury buffs among all these images. Some blurry photos of the Mobiado Grand Line (pictured) are also in the open and it seems like the first QWERTY keyboard phone of the manufacturer. We didn’t ask about the price (expect a four digit number), due to the obvious presence of an apparently hefty sapphire crystal.

We have lots of AT&T news today, but here is  something more. The first details on the Samsung Infinity show it will feature 3-inch WQVGA screen, 2MP camera and an aGPS. It is expected to be an affordable touchscreen phone.

Two videos of the LG enV Touch have also hit the web. You can check them here and here.

Since we know most of you are really looking forward to getting the Pre, it will surely be of interest to know that a bunch of screenshots have been leaked, showing the web browser on webOS. Here are some of them.

actually according to bgr he says that it's a CDMA phone, and since it came from the same source as the TP2 we came to speculate that it willl be heading to vzw!!

Well as you said BGR is just speculating. You've got one guy with four phones, three of which are VZW/Altel it makes sense that the fourth is going to be VZW/Altel too. Thats just looking at the situation logically. There could be something else going on but it certainly looks like the guy is getting them from work, which would mean that Sony + CDMA = VZW. Makes sense to me from a business perspective too. As bad of a spot as Sony Ericsson US is in I'd be looking at every option out there. If one of them is slapping a CDMA radio in a phone and making it so that people can actually get one of your anticipated handsets from a US carrier I'd have to think they'd do it in a heart beat.

remember SE has to do whatever they can do to save their sinking ship :s, so don't rule out a VZW-SE alliance

Yeah which is all true. But it's just that i read that SE stopped making CDMA phones back in 2002, even though they can start back at any moment. It's just a big surprise if all this is true. If Sony Ericsson does make phones for Verizon. Then there's a chance that the interface//theme of the phone is wrecked.

could be a 4g device Verizon will probably launch 2 markets this year with LTE
