HTC Supersonic Screen Grab Has Us SuperExcited, Confused

We’re not even sure where to begin with this one.  Just this week we reported that an upcoming WiMAX-enabled handset called the Supersonic was headed to Sprint.  If you look at the picture to the left of this paragraph, you’ll see a reference to said  codename/product.  Cool, right?  Yes.  Clear?  No.

We’re not sure why we see T-Mobile listed as the carrier at the top.  It’s one thing to have a GSM phone with another carrier’s SIM.  It’s an entirely different thing to go from supposed CDMA to GSM.  T-Mobile’s not even remotely ready to prep a phone beyond 3G.  And what’s with that Android 3.0 in there!?  Are we to assume that T-Mobile is right around the corner from releasing the first handset with 3.0?  What’s included in the OS that’s not found in 2.1?

That codename specifically mentions HTC Supersonic.  Like HTC Nexus One.  Will this be another phone offered through the google.com/phone channel?

Usually, we get answers with screens like this.  For some reason, this one leaves us with questions.  To date, every leaked pic of this type has been legit.We can’t imagine this being faked.  At least we hope it’s not.
