I said I would update IF I recieved a reply. This is what I got. Just wanted to share with you guys, take it however you want to.Hello (My Name),
I understand how important it is to have the latest information about the best new devices around. Currently there are plenty of rumors spreading around the internet about a device referred to as either the HTC Passion or the HTC Dragon. At this time, the device officially does not exist. There has been no announcement made by HTC regarding this device, whether it be for the worldwide market or for a specific carrier (Verizon is the most commonly pointed at in these rumors.) With no announcement having been made, it is unknown what the device is from the pictures that have been seen. As it is unconfirmed that the device exists, so is it unknown when such a device might be released were it to exist. That picture [I sent a copy of the spy photo] does not seem to match the description I have heard of the Passion; I am not entirely sure what that is. Half the fun of waiting for new devices to be announced is the rumor mill; the most common description of the Passion I have heard is the HTC HD2 but running Android rather than Windows Mobile. I would love to be able to make some sort of confirmation, but the facts remain that there is no official acknowledgement of the existence of the device, and I have not heard anything unofficial that would counter that. The best way to keep up with official news is to keep an eye on HTC. You may also wish to follow the HTC Twitter account at www.twitter.com/htc, as announcements are often made on here.
