HTC is preparing a sequel to the most successful and recognizable Android-smartphone — the HTC Hero. This rumor leaked in the Swedish unit of the company. The director of the Swedish unit of HTC Patrick Anderson said that HTC will present a successor to the Hero at the Mobile World Congress, which is traditionally held in Barcelona in February.
But the most interesting information was found in the ROM for the HTC Hero with Android 2.1. It contained some data on the device called the HTC Espresso. Now we know for sure that this device has a 528 MHz processor from Qualcomm, a QWERTY keyboard and a 320×480 pixels screen.
And what about the HTC Dragon? Since it is clearly unprofitable for the company to announce two similar phones with Android on board, the appearance of the HTC Dragon will, most likely, take place no earlier than in March or April.
As it is already known from the ROM, with the Android 2.1 HTC prepares 10-20 devices for next year, including the Bahamas, the Bravo, the DesireC, the Dragon, the Espresso, the Halo, the Huangshan, the Incredible, the Legend, the Liberty, the Memphis, the Paradise, the PassionC, the Passion, the Sapphire, the Supersonic, the Dream, the HeroCT, the HeroC and the Hero.
