HTC Dragon!!! We got a visual on the Android Twin Brother of the HTC Leo

The HTC Dragon!!! It will run 1GHZ Snapdragon, 4.3 IN capacitive screen, WVGA, and will ship with Android 2.0 with a new version of SenseUI im Sure!!! Heres the first pic of this beast that resembles like the Sprint Hero replacement next year

Quote:
The HTC Dragon is seemingly the Android variant of the highly popular Windows Mobile HTC HD2 running a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor--also found on the HD2 and the Acer neoTouch S200.

The Dragon seems to sport a capacitive touch display with a row of touch-sensitive hardware buttons and a trackball at the bottom. Although SlashGear is postulating that the device may be a GSM device sporting GSM/EDGE/HSPA radios, that may not be the actual case upon release; recent HTC devices made for Verizon Wireless also state "3G" when on the carrier's high-speed EVDO network. Those devices include the Verizon Wireless Touch Pro2 and the HTC Imagio.

The Dragon shares another similar trait with the Windows Mobile HTC HD2 including a large 4.3-inch touchscreen display, which we're guessing is capacitive in nature as Android does support capacitive touchscreens. Additionally, it looks like the camera may also support an LED flash. Is this actually a chin-less HTC Hero with a larger screen?

IMO it should be the hero replacement when it reaches EOL

I really want to see what updates HTC did on SenseUI. Im guessing landscape album art scrolling in the music app, and maybe the animated weather wallpaper like WM Sense among others.... cant wait!!!

It's so cool that they are FINALLY building the phones that we've been wanting. Now when we see news like this we only wonder when it's going to release instead of wondering why they didnt include certain things lol.

It looked really long in the pics, like the dimensions of the screen are different from the HD2. I wanna see some specs on the dimensions.

I wonder the same thing actually. The phones are surprisingly skinny and with how big the screens are and with all the features, I think the one drawback will be battery life.
