HTC Lancaster & Motorola Heron to add a bit of reach to Android
Great news for Android fans as two spanking new Android devices sporting sliding QWERTYs and shiny touchscreens seem to be in the works - the HTC Lancaster and the Motorola Heron are both included in the massive AT&T leak, we're reporting on today.
The Lancaster's specs contains almost everything you may expect from a smartphone - a 528MHz. Qualcomm MSM7225 processor, 2.8-inch QVGA touch display, a hardware QWERTY keyboard, 3 megapixel fixed-focus camera and the full connectivity package - HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS support, Bluetooth, microUSB plug and a microSD card slot.
There are no particular details about the Android OS running on the Lancaster, but AT&T will obviously have it branded their way. The HTC Lancaster is expected on 3 August.
Surprisingly Motorola will also release an Android powered device for AT&T. It's called Heron and its specs are almost the same as HTC Lancaster.
The Motorola Heron sports the same 528MHz CPU, 2.8-inch touchscreen, a vertical sliding full QWERTY keyboard, a 3 megapixel fixed-focus snapper with LED flash and video recording in QVGA@24fps. The connectivity as usual for a smartphone is complete - HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth, microUSB port and a microSD expansion slot.
What's curious about the Motorola Heron is has obviously been conceived as a Windows Mobile device - visible from those images on the slide, but AT&T clearly enough claims "Subject to change due to move to Android".
The Motorola Heron is expected to hit the AT&T network on 2 November this year.

Read the description. The phone is being reloaded with Android and is due out later this year. Therefore there is no picture of an Android phone.

If the phones will have a similar price, I would go for HTC, since they only launched good phones lately.
