HTC Bravo Probably Coming to Verizon; Specs and Pics Shown Off

In anticipation of a press conference later today at MWC 2010 that will supposedly announce this device officially, we have discovered some leaked specs and photos of the HTC Desire. If the Desire sounds familiar, don’t be shocked; it should sound familiar. It originally was anticipated back around the time the Droid and Droid Eris were coming out. In fact, most rumors had assumed the Desire ended up becoming the Droid Eris. Apparently, those rumors were wrong.

Instead, the HTC Desire will actually be the new name of the HTC Bravo, an incredibly exciting device to keep track of. The Bravo has been rumored to not only match the Nexus One in specs but exceed them, and become one of the most impressive Android 2.1 devices on the market at time of release. It will also be heading to be sold on Verizon.

    If the specs you're showing are correct, there's no way this phone is coming to Verizon. It's impossible. The radio isn't compatible with EV-DO. The only US carrier that this radio is compatible with is T-Mobile.

    I personally think this is going to be a Europe-only phone (at least for now).

  • p3ngwin

    where's the 1280*720P camcorder feature ?

  • Anonymousee

    Its not heading to Verizon, you idiot
    it supports European frequencies, seriously wtf happened to all these news sites

    These specs don't work for T-Mo Either, at least if you don't want #g support… Fine if you don't want 3g, but I think we'll stick to the N1. Other than that I'm assuming this is only the European versions specs and that the U.S version would be modified. Looks like the same camera as the N1 though so the only difference is the Sense UI.
