Also, not that it's android, but the latest in the rumor mill is that Verizon will get it's own version of the iPhone (slightly smaller) in June of 2010.

lol I've been researching what's the best phone to get on what network for some months. Want to make sure I have the best I can get at the time.
So far I really like INBRICS phone

I gotta say, that while the Passion's Hercules Power is very appetizing, I'm not so sure that I'm hyped about the aesthetics of it.

I'm hoping some skins will be available for it.

Looks to be a slick phone, but physical QWERTY's just aren't my thing.

No disrespect to anyone here, I absolutely love this place, but I think this thread is starting to wander a bit off topic.

Carry this to a new thread or direct posts here Please? :
Future Android Phones
or
Next Droid Phones for Verizon? When are they coming out?

There is an Inbrics Thread here:
Inbrics Android MID Coming Early 2010

I actually asked a question in my previous post. I made NO demand.

First I made it clear I mean't no disrespect. Then I asked a question.
Finally, I only made suggestions.

I ask do not take offense, which I may and will do.

I think the reason this is running off topic is there is no news on the Passion. Im thinking this was all a rumor some kid started in his basement lol. No FFC check, no solid pics (real), no news,even BGR has dropped the Passion hoopla. I think they should close the whole damn forum on Passion. Putting alot of presure on HTC to rename a phone the Passion to not let us down lol.

The request was not only very polite, but reasonable. Please do take a look at the rules thread. You will notice several mentions of being respectful to the members around you. Please soak that in before continuing to post.

Am I suggesting you can't have a little side talk during slow Passion news time? No. Still, do I want it to derail the thread? No. This is a Passion thread in the Passion forum. So if someone politely asks you to move irrelevant talk to a relevant thread, don't fault them for that. Much less be rude about it. Hell, ignoring the request altogether would have been better than that childish response.

A reasonable approach would have been for you and CST to take the talk to PMs (or a new thread) after the first couple posts of realizing you were both interested in this other phone.

Please keep all further replies to this thread on topic please. If you (or anyone) has any feedback or response in reply to this post, do it in PMs.

And by do it in PMs, I mean - send me a private message. Do not click the "reply" button, and continue this talk here. Seems silly for me to have to say? You'd be surprised.

yet nothing official emerged until now.

Still didn't get anything "official" from that link did you?

Not bashing here but it seems this stuff gets recycled every few days.

Is there ever going to be anything new? I've been able to absorb 3 months worth of rumors in one day, simply because there really is NO information on this phone.

Makes you wonder if someone didn't just make it all up after seeing the picture of the mystery HTC phone leaked.

You keep telling us this. You are one of the reasons I continue to have hope. I hope for you're sake you are right, otherwise you are going to have a mob of angry phone nerds coming after you - you could loose an eye from a rogue stylus, or be sufficated by a discarded screen protector....

So again this isn't something people haven't heard before. The device is slated for verizon but the details are sketchy even for verizon corporate development. I was trying to get a device to test with but all I can get is that the "htc dragon" people talk about isn't a device but the dragon is the codename for the processor being used, simple as it is the snapdragon, and the "passion" is the codename for the device that is due out sometime in Q1.

Verizon has been keeping the droid stuff close to the chest from on high, corporate development didn't get the phone to show off to us till a week before it launched and generally we can get phones at least a month ahead of time and have information long before then.

Have they been given an official name of the phone, any official specs of the phone they are using, has this phone passed the FCC yet, or how long they were told they were going to "test" this phone? Any additional info would take the edge off for another week or two .

This photo of some HTC device http://www.droiddog.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/HTC_Dragon-3.jpg looks to have the same startup screen as the Motorola Droid (which can be seen in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07OE7jvl02M&feature=player_embedded#.... Sorry I couldn't find a still photo of the screen.) Where the black censor bar is should say droid. Makes me wonder two things, if this Unicorn Phone is part of Verizon's Droid line, or if this photo was photoshopped. The ladder seems more likely considering that the startup screen on the Eris looks nothing like this. Also the top bar where the service tower, clock, and battery are, is very characteristic of a Motorola device.

People, I think we've been duped

So I finally stopped by my Verizon store in Sevierville and asked my friend if he knew anything about the HTC Passion. He smiled, almost slyly, before saying he knew nothing beyond the rumors online and that I was the third person to ask. He said that there was a phone on a different network being called the Passion and that when Verizon gets it, it will probably be the Dragon. I of course jumped on that comment with a "So Verizon IS going to get it?" To which he replied, "That's still unofficial."
So like kyler13 said, he's in the same boat we are. I did get to see the Eris for the first time and I have to say was kind of surprised. I had only see the picture, which does not do the phone justice. Was really nice.

I work for one of Verizon's corporate customers. We had some emails going back and forth early last month about it as I want to test some features for staff that can handle strong cpu processing and the eris doesn't cut it. Also I don't want the staff having that physical keyboard to play with nervously as it will cause issues.

Cant you get one of them to take a picture of themselves holding the phone? Not focusing on the phone but a kind of "Oh hey I accidentally took a picture of my torso while holding this phone"

Makes sense, but then HTC prob. as a division like Fringe science and is dedicated to hunting those people down after posting a picture to the online community, and divulging information that can prob. cost millions of dollars......

Or they are just lying !

When the droid (motorola) came out we (VZW employees) had to sign about 6 different NDA's when we went to training for the device and for the invite only rally for our region. VZW is taking these android handsets VERY seriously, honestly, I'm not going to put my job in jeopardy to show people a phone, that we all know is coming out sooner or later anyways.

Im excited and the more I wait the more money i save not having a data plan! This will be my first phone that I will have a data plan for and can surf the net, Im in construction now but will be soon getting a job in education, "I graduated a year ago certified K5 and special ed, and haven't found a job! no reason for email checking and surfing the net when Im laying tile and grouting walls..... but soon I will!!!!!!!

well i spoke to an HTC sales rep today and he said flat out that htc was not going to be releasing any more phones in 2009, he had heard of the passion and he said that it was going to be coming out in Q1 2010. although he said that he wasnt sure that it would be coming to verizon although all signs point to that. He also said that from now on verizon would not be releasing any smartphones that cost more than $199...

I was just at a local Verizon store. I asked the sales people if they had any information on the HTC Passion. They had never heard of it. However, one of them looked it up in their system. Guess what? The Passion was listed in their system. It was listed as "HTC Passion 1GHz Processor Coming Holiday 2009". That's it. That made me so happy. I was like "Thank You" and left.
That definitely is proof that it is coming out before the end of the year unless something changes.

That website doesn't say anything about a 1 ghz process now does it? She wouldn't known that. That's what she saw it when came up.

There is nothing in the VZW system that a retail employee can access in regards to ANY android phone other than the Droid and Droid Eris. Period. Trust me, I check everyday.
However, there IS a BoGo on the Droid this weekend, so tell your friends who may be looking for that "great deal".

If you really want to know if you were being fooled or not: Go back to that verizon store and ask for them to search again, then let them show you what it says on their screen or look over your self to confirm it's not them just googling it. Sounds to me like you were duped but I'd be happy to be proven wrong.

Yeah, let us know. we're waiting..... oh, and dumb question but, why is there so many threads about this phone. would be easier to just have a pre-release thread. actually maybe not. i followed the omnia 2 thread for too long, and it was ginormous at the end-over 7000 posts! maybe it's better to talk about individual things and access it easier. nevermind, just talking out loud. thanks

That definitely is proof that it is coming out before the end of the year unless something changes.

Seems odd that "in their system" it would say "Coming Holiday 2009" rather then being a bit more specific. If they were checking an actual inventory system, I've never heard of one that sets vague arrival dates.
Just my thoughts though. I'm trying to keep my hopes at a manageable level. lol

Default Scandinavian news

Hi everyone,

I read on a Swedish news site yesterday about HTC strategy and organisation in Scandinavia. The next major Android phone to be released here will be shown at a Mobile World Congress | Global Conference for Mobile Technology and Business on the 15th of Feb 2010. Shortly after it will be available in Swedish stores. Maybe this could be the Passion you all are waiting for. Maybe it has already been released in US before that. The Hero came first to EU so maybe US has to wait once more? Anyway I will wait until something nice shows up, the Hero is nice but I would like a bigger screen.


Så ska HTC utmana mobiljättarna - IDG.se

"Uppföljaren till Flaggskeppet Hero premiärvisas på mobilmässan i Barcelona den 15 februari och dyker upp i svenska butiker kort därefter"

Thanks for the link but what I read in that article is that the sequel to the "flagship Hero" will be debuted at MWC. Doesn't say the next HTC Android phone will be debuted then. My goodness, if that were the case I'd be buying the Eris today, I tried it out again and it's a mighty good product.

Thumbs down No FCC yet

FYI everyone, I've been checking the FCC daily for about a week now. Nothing from HTC since 10/23/09, though of course they could use a different name if they really wanted to be stealthy. I personally don't think they'd go that far to protect Motorola's sales, though!

To put that in a little perspective, Motorola has quite a few entries lately, including 12/02 and 12/04! I'm not good enough to figure out what the devices are though.

IMHO, it's not looking good for the Passion to be released mid-December as we had been hoping.

Default FCC addendum

By the way, here's the FCC search form I've been using.

https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm?calledFromFrame=N

I put "HTC" as the Applicant Name and 10/01/2009 - 12/31/2009 as my search range. Try it with HTC then try it with "Motorola" and you'll see the difference for yourself.

I'm really hoping we hear something early next week. If we don't, Q1 2010 may be it.

Another tidbit:

TmoNews: Google phone to T-Mobile?
Google Phone To T-Mobile? | TmoNews - Unofficial T-Mobile Blog - News, Videos, Articles and more

Still more rumors, but at least there's no longer any silence regarding HTC's upcoming offerings.

If you follow tweets, lots of inquiries regarding the nextgen of HTC phones, be it the Passion, Dragon, or whatever...

So we don't really know where its going at all now...I liked it better when we thought it was coming to Verizon. At least we have a new time frame... First 2 weeks in Jan. I'm not gonna be able to leave the Big Red V though. Best service in this area of So Cal.

So basically all the rumors about passion are true EXCEPT that it's coming to Verizon?

No way I'm switching to t-mobile.

Read the bottom of the Phandroid article There are a couple different Passion devices listed (linked there) so, with any luck there's enough for both!

Phases & article are right on the $$$$

I know you guys remember the salty salt-kabob Phandroid.com served you up...
MMMMMMMMM mmmmmmmm!!


http://phandroid.com/2009/12/03/code-leak-rumoredupcoming-htc-android-phone-names/




the list of 20 future devices listed in the leaked 2.1 ROM;

Bahamas, Bravo, DesireC, Dragon, Dream, Espresso, Halo, HeroCT, HeroC, Hero, Huangshan, Incredible, Legend, Liberty, Memphis, Paradise, PassionC, Passion, Sapphire and Supersonic.



I think its safe to say VZW will get ONE of the Passions listed.

If not, I'd like the Memphis
AND
A Supersonic with Cheeeeese Please!

Honestly though, I'd be down for VZW to get the codename "Dragon" instead of Passion.

Yargh... the anticipation is killing me :-)

Picked up an Eris during the holiday 60 day return program and I am loving it; coming from a POS Motorola Q I promise I will be happy with it for a long time...

But DAMN I want this phone! I'm in the same boat as you all, searching every day for new info... fingers crossed that it comes to VZW before Jan 13th!!
