Exclamation HTC Passion VZW (Dragon)!! NEW INFO 11-10-2009

Looks like VZW is getting the HTC Dragon fairly soon, in the form of the HTC Passion, with the 1Ghz Snapdragon processor and an Android operating system.

4.3" screen, 5 Megapixel camera, well you know the specs.


Updated info: 11-10-2009

A picture of a handset screen is sending waves of excitement and anticipation throughout the rather large community of Verizon smartphone users. The photograph is certainly that of an HTC developed model that runs Android. The thinking is that this is the display of the Passion/Dragon, the super spec'd device that is the Android powered version of the drool forming HTC HD2. While the latter is a Windows Mobile 6.5 phone expected to be released in the States during the first quarter of 2010-most likely by T-Mobile-the Passion/Dragon should keep many of the HD2's features like a 4.3 inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 5MP camera. Add Android 2.0 to the mix and you should have a device in high demand. A BGR tipster tells the site that this could be launched in time to participate in Black Friday. This is based on a previous tip to BGR that either the BlackBerry Curve2 or the HTC Dragon would be launched on Black Friday. Since the Curve2 is coming out on November 20th, that would leave the Dragon for Black Friday, and where there is a Dragon-there is Passion. The Android excitement at Verizon continues.

Re: HTC Passion VZW (Dragon)!! coming soon

It looks to me like big red is placing it's bets on Android. I was really hoping Verizon would get the HD2, but if they dont get any winmo phones that can compete with this one I might have to start learning more about Android.

While I really like my Hero, I hope Sprint carries some of these high horsepower android phones in the near future.

Does the Passion have a physical QWERTY keyboard?

I think the only android device with a keyboard verizon is getting is the Droid (sholes). Their hero like device will be touchscreen only, and the Dragon is touchscreen only.

Correct Tokuzumi, except that the Motorola phone after the Droid will also have a qwerty keyboard.

The Motorola Calgary.
