“Bigfoot” is an HTC Device – Cosmetic Redesign of Same Old G1

htc_mobileHere we are – right back where we started.  According to a “trusted source” over at TmoToday, the G1 v2/Bigfoot handset is manufactured by HTC.

  • The G1 V2 is still an HTC Android device. It is a physical, external redesign mostly, of the existing G1. The changes were made due to the overwhelming display of people thinking the G1 hit every branch on the way down when it fell out of the ugly tree.
  • The Samsung devices are not being labeled, internally at least, as anything involving the ‘G’ series. I7500 anyone?
  • The HTC G1 V2 is really codenamed bigfoot…honestly.
  • Most of the ‘pics’ we have seen are really just an artists rendering, designed to raise the interest level of people like us, who tend to pick apart the tiny little details. Obviously, its working.

Ok, so artists renderings explain the buttons looking so Motorola-ish.  How Samsung got involved in this whole Bigfoot deal is beyond us.  And really, would a V2 of anything end up getting made by someone else?

So… who do you think is behind the handset?
