Not long ago, we received word that HTC is working on a project called “Project Emerald” that wanted to revive the Sidekick series of phones. More info came to our attention that sheds some light over the above mentioned project. The project consists of a double launch of two Android smartphones: HTC Desire HD and HTC Vision.
According to a Phandroid reliable source, the two devices will be launched through T-Mobile and will be known as MyTouch HD and G1 Blaze
It seems that T-Mobile is already preparing some if its stuff for the coming release, which should take place on September 22nd for Mytouch HD, and September 29th for the G1 Blaze.
The spec sheet of HTC Desire HD, aka MyTouch HD
, has already leaked a few weeks ago, so we are indebted to say the high-end smartphone will be a blast for T-Mobile subscribers. MyTouch HD
should be powered by a 1 GHz Qualcomm processor and will probably come with Android 2.2 (Froyo) out of the box.
It will boast a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen with multi-touch capabilities and an 8.0-megapixel camera monster with 720p HD video capture capabilities.
The leaked spec sheet also includes support the XviD format video playback, SRS Audio Technology, Face tracking, support for Adobe Flash 10.1, E-book reader, as well as 4 GB internal memory and microSD slot card for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
Slightly smaller, the HTC Vision
includes a 3.7-inch touchscreen display that boasts a WVGA resolution, complemented by a spacious QWERTY keyboard.
It's also worth mentioning that the device should be powered by a 1GHz processor, which would offer enhanced performance levels.
As a side note, HTC Desire HD is also known as HTC Ace and was listed as launching this fall on HTC's roadmap for 2010 that leaked a few weeks ago.
