HTC Vision to be a Desire-like Android smartphone with QWERTY keyboard?

For some reason, all of HTC’s latest high-end Android smartphones (HTC Desire, HTC Incredible, HTC EVO 4G) come without a hardware keyboard.

But fret not, QWERTY fans, as HTC is apparently readying a Desire-like handset that will also include a sliding keyboard. Codenamed HTC Vision, this upcoming smartphone has a WVGA touchscreen display and, according to Tweakers.net, its UA profile is similar to the one of the HTC Desire (save for the already-mentioned presence of a hardware keyboard).

Details on the availability of the HTC Vision are basically nonexistent at the moment, but the handset might be announced pretty soon – maybe running Android 2.2 from the start.

Needless to say, this above is a mock-up that mixes the HTC Desire with the Touch Pro 2’s keyboard – and with a non-Android OS (is that MeeGo/Maemo?).

    Actually, the screenshot is from the Youtube application from the Desire (picture nr 8 on this page: http://tweakers.net/reviews/1604/12/htc-desire-… ) :)

    yyaaawwwn, thanks for the article Florin, but damn, I'm yet to see anything truly amazing that screams 2010/11. Why are we exposed to dinosaor phones that belong in the year 2003? Can't we have phones like they do in Iron man 2/Star Trek the Movie?

    Really? This reads far worse than fashion magazine full of rumors, fake mockups? No facts? BRRRT
