I also have seen and gotten a chance to use it for a little bit. It flies compared to other android phones I've tried (haven't tried all of them), and it may, MAY, have a 700mhz cpu instead of the reported 600mhz. In any case, it is definitely my next phone.
this phone is real and i've seen it. its awesome, fast and slimmer than the original mytouch. better than i thought.
Specs aren't completely accurate, this device WILL have a 5 mp camera, it's already been comfirmed.
Anonymous, 20 Apr 2010I highly doubt that 2.1 will work 'Flawlessly' on this device. This has very similar specs to ... moremytouch could very well run 2.1, lol the g1 runs it well. reason its not on the mytouch right now is because htc is busy with new phones that drivers for the old ones are getting pushed at the back of the priority queue
lol, r u crazy? they just share the name. it runs 2.1 + espresso ui which means its not carrying the same arm11 processor... arm11 processor is a family it ranges from 350 - 600+ mhz. this will share the hero specs not mytouch/magic
I highly doubt that 2.1 will work 'Flawlessly' on this device. This has very similar specs to the MyTouch3G, which does not run 2.1 very well.
This is NOT replacing the sidekick. It will be released in may. Employees get their devices the 26th of April. Why such a low mpx camera is unanswered. How ever android 2.1 will be flawless on this device unlike the behold 2 that has major issues supporting the firmware.
keyboard looks uncomfortable
htc should go with the far superior touchpro2's keyboard if this is real
