Get ready for some new additions to HTC’s lineup on T-Mobile; a recently-uncovered job posting has confirmed that T-Mobile is planning an event to launch three new HTC smartphones on June 8.
The posting is eliciting those with a knack for smartphones to help the company show off these three unnamed HTC models at an event taking place in Houston, TX. We learned a couple weeks back that T-Mobile was planning to launch the Sensation 4G on June 8, so that’s likely to be the highlight of this event. Heck, there have been signs of a June 8 launch for the Sensation going [...]
We’ve reported earlier about the HTC Doubleshot and, according to its user agent profile, we said it will be an Android Gingerbread-powered WVGA handset with physical QWERTY keyboard coming to T-Mobile. It’s test ROM has been leaked and it looks like it will be the myTouch 4G Slide.
After the T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide — which recently got its Froyo update — there was the myTouch 4G which, even though was rated well in our review, was lacking the physical keyboard. According to 911 blog leaking the Radio, it will indeed be tied to T-Mobile and will [...]
There’s a new smartphone being developed known as the HTC Doubleshot, and it has posted a single six-megapixel photo to Picasa. According to the caption, the shot was taken in Washington, D.C. across the Potomac River towards Virginia — it is labeled as an “HDR test.” The picture seems to have been taken by an HTC employee visiting the States from overseas.
A full-size version of the photo is hotlinked here.
Various reports have the Doubleshot as a T-Mobile-bound QWERTY slider with WVGA resolution and 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Blog of Mobile!! [...]
The HTC Doubleshot, rumored to be coming to T-Mobile, is indeed an Android Gingerbread-powered WVGA handset with physical QWERTY keyboard, according to its user agent profile. Along with information gleaned from an online benchmark tool, the specs of this 1.2GHz device are falling into place nicely: a photograph posted to Picasa tipped us to its six-plus-megapixel camera with HDR capabilities; we’re starting to think that Doubleshot refers to a 3D camera on this model a la the Optimus 3D and EVO 3D.
The other known features are a Bluetooth 3.0 radio and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi [...]
With 911sniper‘s posting of the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide/HTC Doubleshot leaked ROM earlier today, we have analyzed the contents and discovered some more info about the pending device. Most interesting is support for 1080p 3D recording, a first in the industry (other 3D devices feature only 720p 3D recording/playback.)
The Doubleshot will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon MSM8660 1.2GHz Dual Core CPU, paired with the Adreno 220 GPU, and 768MB RAM. The display is a 3.7-inch WVGA LCD, with a VGA resolution front facing camera, and an eight-megapixel rear-facing camera. [...]
