It's me or HTC is repetitive?

    Another HTC model is "leaked", codename Rome, this seems a clone of the touch2 with android (not yet confirmed though).
    If it is true and it has the same CPU of the touch 2 it would become a tattoo clone.
    So HTC has

    Dream
    Magic
    Eris
    Hero (two tastes eu and us)
    Tattoo
    Rome.

    But eris and hero are very similar (just the design and the proximity sensor)
    The magic is similar to us hero without sense, but this should change soon.
    Tattoo and rome too (small display model)

    And all these models have similar hardware inside (with some minor differences) and the only real difference is the display and design.

    The only "different" model is the dream due to it's keyboard.
    So they have 6 android phones that really count just as 3.

    Why HTC keeps cloning the same model again and again? why don't they make different models aimed at different users like they do for the winmo side?

    HTC I want a touch pro 2 with android ;)

    If HTC have more phones on the market there is a greater chance of somebody picking one of theirs?

    I think, that for still quite some part of the phone audience, looks matter more then functionality.
    So making a lot of the same phones with different appearences is actually quite smart :).
    Using the same hardware with only a different appearence will allso cut on research costs :).

    The sad truth ;)

    I read somewhere that in the leaked htc-hero rom there are references to 20 new models.
    Let's hope that they aren't all hero clones ;)
