Rumor:Froyo-Flavored Scorpion to Sting Verizon Customers with 1.5GHz
Like a bad penny, the Scorpion rumors have turned up again. The last time we checked in on this phone we were reporting that it would feature a 1.5GHz processor and have support for WiMAX. We, like others, assumed it was Sprint-bound. It doesn’t look that way any longer.
Mobile Crunch is reporting this afternoon that a “well-informed” source has tipped the phone for a Verizon release. This source, conflipper, is a pretty big ROM hacker and feels pretty strongly about Verizon being the carrier. Like most Android rumors, I am inclined to believe them. There really haven’t been that many that don’t actually come to fruition in some form or another. For what it’s worth, Snapdragon handsets were first whispered when rumors of an HTC Dragon showed up. Maybe this is all related to the Scorpion processors from Qualcomm?
Will there be other Scorpion handsets? More importantly, who is psyched over an Android 2.2 phone at 1.5Ghz?
