Nice catch. Hopefully the dude who took the pic doesnt get in trouble since he forget to black out the serial number on the phone. Too bad its probably only the european phone. But its more hopeful as the HTC 2010 catalog did not list it with Sense and there it is.

There's NO way that is the Bravo. Cause newsradio guaranteed 100 billion percent that it would have touch keys on the front, not physical ones. So, that picture MUST be photoshopped. Oh well...maybe some real pictures will eventually be released.

Yep, and I don't see any clear evidence of the ADVANCED version of Inner Circle either. Must be a photoshopped picture. Oh well, the waiting game continues...

Oh yeah man, I totally agree! To be quite honest, this picture has KINDA been what we've been waiting to see since December. I'm not saying that this phone is going to be what Verizon releases. I'm just saying that now we know that the original rendering of the Bravo, from ai.rs, was spot on! So, that means that their other pictures/renderings of other phones must be pretty close too.

But yeah, regardless, this is GREAT news and some great confirmation. At least we know that there is an Android phone with a 3.7" screen that has HTC Sense UI on it now. That means that there will be a port of Sense UI , that fits that screen resolution, leaked out eventually. So, we'll get our Sense UI one way or another on our HTC 3.7" device if we want it.

Dude, that's a GREAT idea! Someone contact him via email or something. I forget without looking at the article, did the Droid Developer guy say that the phone DID or DID NOT have physical buttons on the phone? If I remember correctly, he didn't comment on the buttons, but I may be wrong. If he is contacted and says "oh yeah, the phone I got to hold DID have physical buttons like that picture." Then dude...WE'RE SET! Now someone just needs to contact him. Great idea Mykpfsu!

Good catch! I was too busy getting the spooge off my screen to notice.



Maybe this tipster's trying to send us a signal?!?!

But seriously, not sure what that means. I just check and the last Friday, Feb. 22 was in 2008.

I just want that (Sense UI) on a 3.7" screen with a snapdragon processor on Big Red! Is that too much to ask? All the other things like trackball vs optical, AMOLED vs LCD, capacitive buttons vs physical, and so on arent deal breakers for me either way. I just want Sense 2.0+ on a large screen with a fast processor. Come on Verizon I'm not being picky.

Well let's add the fact that this phone is apparently 2 years old to the reasons why this cant be the Bravo....

I believe you can find both these pics (this one and the other one all the sites have) in the dictionary next to career suicide.
Why didnt they go all out and give us a video?

My guess is that the phone hasn't been calibrated yet or something. So, the date is off. Either that or they're trying to send us a message. There's no way this phone is two years old. The iPhone is two years old. This has to just be a software setting that hasn't been set or they're trying to send us a message of a possible release date. That's just my personal opinion though.

And I...JIZZ IN MY PANTS!

Seriously. At this point I'm surprised the background of the two pics wasnt the employee's drivers license as well as a map with directions to his cubicle.

Outside of Engadget and Droid Developer talking about the Incredible (which I'll now bet is the Verizon version of the Bravo)? No. Thats why I wish I could see the back, are there 2 holes near the camera like Droid Developer reported about the Incredible?

DROOL!
I <3 physical buttons AND the optical trackpad.
Not to mention the black on black as opposed to the icky N1 colors.
Sense 2.1 is just icing on the cake.

I am praying to the phone gods that VZW lands this superphone in the next couple o' months.

Touched-up pic to see buttons. me lickey



2 questions:
-there is a spot in the middle of the trackpad. is there a notification light in there?
-is this trackpad clickable?
don't suppose anyone has any experience with an htc trackpad-this is a new improvement, correct? just looking for guesses then.
thanks

My guess is the space in the middle of the trackpad is the window for the laser/light (like an optical mouse) assuming their optical setup is the same as blackberry's.

I'm assuming the same and guessing that it will be clickable since 1. phones with trackballs are clickable and 2. they added some kind of round metal housing around the optical window which i'm guessing is actually a button. Just my 2 cents

I forgot to mention that the added round metal around the optical window was added from the mock-up photos we all saw from that t-mobile brochure. Don't want ppl thinkin i had prior knowledge about anything.

If/when it comes to the US, who knows what carrier it'll be on. Plus that's probably about April or so. I'd go with a Nexus One now if you can afford it, because the resell value is crazy on eBay. If the Bravo goes AT&T or T-Mobile and it's 2.1 working perfectly with Sense UI like it's supposed to be, then that's the route I'll go: sell N1, cop this.

It appears that this is the phone I've been waiting for. Come on Verizon, don't let me down! One thing I don't get though, is why they keep saddling these devices with such a small amount of RAM. Memory is CHEAP these days, why not jack it up to 1 GB+?

What's up SoCalMiles? Haven't seen ya in awhile. Hope your new year is going well. We're all thinking that Verizon is coming out with the Droid Incredible soon and it is going to be the U.S. version of the Bravo. I'm almost 100% about it now. There is just too much evidence saying that the Bravo will be the incredible and after reading this little article Droid Developer Verizon has something “INCREDIBLE” up their sleeves.. I'm pretty much convinced that Bravo=Incredible. So, we're all just waiting now. I'll wait as long as I have to really.

Stupid question, but how will you update if it is outside of the 30 day period, just buy at full retail price or do most people have another family line eligible for an upgrade?

Im actually dissapointed in the final design. It just doesnt look as clean and simple as the old render. I really dont like how the screen has layers of plastic surrounding it, its not seamless like the iPhone and Nexus one. Really the cosmetics of the phone and low ram are a deal breaker. This year is gonna be crazy will new cellphones with badass specs coming left to right so im not worrying to much. Heres the old pic so I can show you the differences and you can see my point about the around and below the screen. It just looks cheap to me.

It looks like the roadmap pictures, not like the render. I always noticed how the render was missing some of those cosmetics that you just mentioned. I believe the render was an early design while the pictures in the roadmap were more matured. IMHO I like the style with the layers of plastic.

I have a family plan for me and my girl friend with 3 lines on it. The third was from her friend from over 2 years ago but that didn't work out. I was gonna cancel but then I decided that 10 bucks a month for another upgrade a year might not be that bad soo...I got a Droid now...when the snapdragon keyboard-less monster gets to Verizon..I'll get that and kick the droid to her (she likes it better and processors don't mean much to her!)

Wow. Those pics that came out are FUGLY! Way worse looking than the initial photoshop rendering. IMO, it's too blocky. I liked the thin sleek design of the photoshop render, but the real "in-th-wild" shot is just plain hideous.

Has anybody tried to figure out the model number on this phone? The left side of the screen looks like HT9BRPL00100..... The droid Eris was PB00100 and I was just trying to get people to think what PL00100 would be. There might be another digit behind the messages icon. I tried changing the HT to NB for the FCC site but no luck.
