HTC recently shared that they will be having a press event on November 3rd at 3PM in New York City. No details about what will happen at the event were given, but the easy speculation is that it will be the official announcement of the HTC Rezound (HTC Vigor) flagship phone. Most of the industry rumor suggests that the actual device will launch on November 10th, so this logic bears up well. Interestingly, that date is also the same date the Motorola Droid RAZR and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus were rumored to launch. This means that November 10th could be a day of difficult decisions for Verizon customers. As a recap, the Rezound has some amazing specs:
- 4.3-inch HD display
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM
- 8-megapixel camera
- Beats Audio technology
No word yet on whether ICS will be on the Rezound at launch, but more than likely that won't be the case. One reason is obviously because the Galaxy Nexus should be launching on or around the same day, and needs to be the first phone with Android 4.0. The other is that some industry rumors suggest that HTC is having some trouble porting their newest version of Sense UI to Ice Cream Sandwich. We will keep you informed as more details emerge.
