Leaked HTC RoadMap Reveal 5 New Android Handsets

htc_leaked_5_phonesThe folks over at XDA-Developers have hit upon a virtual goldmine!  Somehow, one of their users was able to get access to a whole slew of HTC handsets slated for 2010 release.  So far, 5 new Android handsets have been unearthed from the Powerpoint document.  The models, codenamed Buzz, Tide, Salsa, Legend, and Bravo all appear to  be headed to T-Mobile.  We’ve grabbed around half of the screen grabs for you here, but if you want to see the rest, go to XDA’s thread on the topic.

HTC is organizing their lineup into different categories for 2010 – Design / Lifestyle, Social, Performance, and Productivity. The following phones are sorted by their respective categories with some known specs and release dates.  If you look through the images, you’ll find even more specifics.  While some might sound like the same old pieces on the inside, the outside form factor is sure to turn more heads.  As for the “Performance” series Bravo, well… April can’t come soon enough!

    Is a rollerball like on the G1 and MT3G too much to ask for? The ball beats a d-pad like whoa.

    Yea, these are not coming to T-Mo USA so you may want to correct your story.

      They report t false things a lot so I wouldn't waist your time complaining. I have already received a letter from them saying i need to stop slamming them for pointing out that they report wrong information. i even offered to help make it right so that they can be more accredited but they said no.

      Where exactly does it say T-Mobile USA? Either you just assumed that or the last comment was incorrect in saying they never correct mistakes.

      Either way, here's hoping the Bravo makes it here.

        No it isn't, Bravo has an OLED screen with the same resolution slightly smaller.
        OLED means best ever image quality, lowest power requirements, thinest and most shock resistent.
        The only inferior spec is size, but 3.7" should be enough for typing on a virtual keyboard if you can type on a 3.2"

    All these phones are wack!! Tmobile better get a groundbreaking Android device & quick! I cant believe all the Top of the Line handsets are going to other carriers when Tmobile made Android what it is. Now its leaving them behind like a red headed step child

    No side-slide qwerty keyboard. And the only one with a d-pad is the Salsa.

    Looks like I'll be waiting for a different device maker for my next generation phone.

    The Bravo is looking pretty sweet. The 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED touch screen is basically what the droid has. PLEASE BRING THIS OR SOME OTHER HIGH RES FAST PROCESSOR DEVICE TO THE US T_MOBILE! PLEASE, before you loose your techie users. People are leaving T-mobile because the devices are simply better elsewhere.

    So, no G2….

    That's a wide time gap between the G1 and its successor. None of these phones live up to my hopes.
