HTC Planning A Hero Successor, Is It The QWERTY-totting Espresso?By cheatmaster 10:33 Fri, 09 Jul 2021 Comments
A recently leaked eXtensible Markup Language (XML) revealed the specs of the second HTC Android phone with a QWERTY keyboard - the HTC Espresso. Strangely, that coincided with an HTC spokesperson confirming an upcoming Hero successor in February.
The codename HTC Espresso was first found embedded among others in the company's latest leaked Android ROM.
In a recent interview, Patrik Andersson, HTC's Sweden exec, assumed that half of company's 2010 devices will run the Android OS. And one of them will be the successor of the highly popular HTC Hero due for announcement in February during the Mobile World Congress 2010.
Now we're not really sure if that adds up to the leaked eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and whether the HTC Espresso is the mentioned Hero successor, but one thing's for sure - we'd gladly have a cup of this one.
The QWERTY keyboard aside, the Hero and Espresso share the same coffee beans - the elegant Qualcomm MSM 7200A 528 Mega Hertz (MHz) processor and the classy screen resolution of 320 x 480 pixels (classy screen size is still unknown).
Unfortunately, the leaked eXtensible Markup Language (XML) data also points out only 16-bit color rendering - the 65K colors that we've seen on all Androids below 2.0 upsofar are... how do we say that... less than exciting.
