HTC Dream Leak
Two of HTC's more anticipated phones are likely to have been spotted today courtesy of a photo displayed in a forum post. Asking if viewers can identify all the devices, a user shows a large, QWERTY slider device (left) that appears to closely resemble the Dream; the device is large enough to match the description and includes both the large screen and hardware controls previously suggested before. The phone interface also appears different than normal and may hint at the Dream's use of Google Android for its operating system.
A separate but at first unknown device in the photo has been identified by Engadget as the MDA Compact IV, a phone exclusive to T-Mobile in Europe which is known to support 7.2Mbps HSDPA Internet access as well as GPS, Wi-Fi, and 4GB of permanent flash storage. HTC is reading the Dream for a late 2008 release and will release the MDA Compact IV no earlier than the launch of Windows Mobile 6.1; a more universal version is also due but hasn't been shown.
