Verizon could launch a smaller HTC Thunderbolt (Mecha S)

Before being officially announced, Verizon’s HTC Thunderbolt was known as HTC Mecha. So now that we’re hearing there is an Android-based HTC Mecha S in the making, we can only assume it’s some kind of a successor to the Thunderbolt.

PocketNow has managed to obtain the user agent profile of the Mecha S, which shows that the handset has a HVGA (320 x 480) display, CDMA connectivity (perfect for Verizon), and no hardware keyboard.

Since it’s an HVGA smartphone, the Mecha S may be a Thunderbolt Mini… or something alike.

The Mecha S / Thunderbolt Mini could feature 4G connectivity, too (like’s Sprint’s Samsung SPH-D600, which also has an HVGA display). If that’s the case, it will be Verizon’s first mid-end 4G handset. But let’s not anticipate.
