Warehouse Shows HTC A9292 (Supersonic) in Equipment List


We’re merely days away from CTIA and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse’s keynote address but we’re pretty darn sure we know what will be part of his agenda.  The HTC Supersonic is all but an official “go” as pretty much everyone expects it to be unveiled.  For those who haven’t heard of it, the Supersonic will be a 4.3-inch behemoth with Android 2.1 and WiMAX capability.

A member of Android Community’s message board who happens to work as an indirect dealer for Sprint stumbled upon something in an internal warehouse system. Labeled as the the HTC A9292, this is believed to be the Supersonic. You’ll notice it mentions the device as “WIMAX BAR PHONE”. As we’ve reported here before, this will be the first device that Sprint offers with support for their WiMAX network. Other specs rumored to be included in the Supersonic are Android 2.1 with the new Sense UI, FM Radio, a kickstand pro, and an optical joystick.

So, with the Nexus One and the Supersonic on the way to the Now Network, who’s looking to pick one of these up?


  1. Every time I see these "it's all but certain that the ****** phone is coming to Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile/AT&T", I always wanna go back and read all the posts about the super-duper-no-doubt-about-it-factually-verified-will-be-announced-tomorrow Verizon HTC Dragon. I even remember people asking whether they should get a Droid or wait for the Dragon.

  2. I've been drooling over the Supersonic since the first rumors started popping up in January. Now that I know WiMAX will be rolled out here in KC sometime this year, I'm fully planning on picking one up the day it's released if the actual specs live up to the rumors. And if they don't, I'll have the N1 as a very good second choice. Hell, either one will be a million times better than my Moto Q9.

  3. I am madly fond of the Supersonic which is a 4.3-inch behemoth with Android 2.1 and WiMAX capability. I am exceedingly glad to learn more about the device I love. Yours is a nice account of the cherished one.
