    here's the link to start with Cory O'Brien (CoryOBrien) on Twitter
    He's got a pic up that he amusingly took with an iphone.

    and the old passion pic for comparison

    Couple things of note.
    1. 1)No HTC branding on the new phone
    2. 2)you'll notice the home and back buttons have been switched

    This phone could be my saving grace. I've mentioned on the forums before that I'm stuck with AT&T for better or worse, so I haven't exactly had Android as an option. My wife and I were going to pick up iPhones this weekend as christmas presents for each other. I was always planning on getting one for her originally, but I was hoping that an Android phone would come out for AT&T.

    Well...now I think I'll still pick up the iPhone but just return it within the 30 days to get this bad boy, as long as it's not too outrageously priced, assuming that there's no subsidy.

    On that note...I'm really curious how the pricing will work. I really wish we were set up more like Europe where prices weren't permanently in the subsidy, but we could still make monthly payments on the phone. I'm sure we'll have plenty of speculation over the next month. If they're giving them out to most, if not all employees, then we can't be that far off from getting concrete information.

    I was under the impression that the Google phone is not being released under any carrier, but instead being managed 100% by Google. Where did you gleam that the phone is coming out on AT&T?

    No HTC on the Phone named by Google but can this mean that in fact the same phone in reality is named the Passion when branded with HTC?

    Good one Google!!

    Not trying Jack the thread but did anyone notice the Glass of wine that is running low and the tip of the wine bottle over the top of the Google phone peaking out in the back ground and the Santa hat on his head..hahaha

    Think the Wine influenced these leaked pics!
    Yeah for the Alcohol confession!!

    The key is the phone will be unlocked and able to be used on any GSM carrier as speculation goes....if I was Google I would wait for Ltd aka 4g which is bases on GSM which all major cell phone companies are going to.

    The second photo in this thread is an old photo of what was assumed at the time to be the dragon/passion (and possibly still is). Way before the gPhone photos surfaced.

    The phone in the photos from the google employees have no HTC branding.

    It's not necessarily coming to AT&T, it's supposed to be unlocked GSM. Therefor I would be able to use it on AT&T.:)

    Notice on the back it does not say Google like the first pics leaked had shown of what we said was the passion and the Android is different and no HTC branding on the front.

    That phone takes the cake with me.
