    Mysterious Verizon-bound HTC handset appears mysteriously on the internet -- Engadget
    If any of you Verizon users have been dying to get an evo, check this out. Design wise, this thing looks amazing.

    "Hey -- what's this? Well, from the looks of it, it's a new, as-yet-unnamed HTC device. There is perilously little info available about the mystery mobile, but it appears to boast an 8 megapixel camera with a flash plus a front-facing camera, a 4.3-inch screen, a headphone jack and a kickstand. It also appears that it's going to boast HTC's own Sense UI. This falls in line with what we've heard about Verizon's Android-heavy fall launch this year, so we would not be surprised to see this device make an appearance. Furthermore, we could go out on a limb and guess that it's possible this is the Merge mentioned in that lineup, which supposedly boasts a 1GHz processor. That's all there is to the story right now but we're going to stay up late tonight to be on the lookout for further information on this one. One more photo below and hit up the source for the rest."

    I would love to comment on this but I am already on probation and I'm afraid if I said what I felt I might end up on double probation:)

    I like the all black/white back of the EVO a little better than the two-tone of this one, but it still looks very nice.

    I beat you to it by 3 minutes :). I wonder if it still has a 1ghz snapdragon? That would be pretty disappointing. Also, a higher res screen would be nice or an amoled one

    This looks beautiful! If it comes out in October when my NE2 is up, I will have a difficult decision to make..... between this phone and the Fascinate.

    HTC Desire HD? I heard they had a new Desire coming out and that it was either going to Tmobile or Verison and was supposed to pretty much be an Evo without 4G.

    Loving the new kickstand.
    Loving the FLUSH camera.
    Loving the N1-sleekness of the bodystyle.
    --------------
    Hating that now it appears HTC learned to bail on the HDMI port.
    Hating that the previous statement means this thing won't have the FPS cap. (or maybe just jealous)
    Hating that this thing will be on Verizon... because I hate Verizon.
    --------------
    Wondering what the hell that little circle is below the kickstand.
    Wondering why there's so much "extra meat" around the side edges of the screen.
    Wondering why they don't give us a 'straight on' shot of this thing?

    It's an EVO clone. Explain how it warrants attention over the Incredible?

    If you need the newest, but not the greatest, get this.

    Sooooon....Very sexy. This is what the EVO should have been from the start. The camera lens looks recessed and the kickstand is much more solid, plus visually it just looks better than the phone we have now. HTC just dropped a huge grenade on Sprint.
