    MobileCrunch has posted an article that makes some pretty wild speculation about a possible Android-powered Verizon phone called the HTC Scorpion.

    What is the basis for this? Well for one thing a build file showed up a while ago that referenced the name (article here) - in addition, some of the specs were contained: 1.5ghz processor, Android 2.2 and WiMax support.

    Besides the build file, conflipper, a ROM maker has come out and sort of "confirmed" the device will be heading for Verizon.

    You can read MobileCrunch's full article on the phone here: Rumor: HTC Scorpion and all of its 1.5 Ghz, Android 2.2 goodness headed for Verizon?

    To simply say that such a device would fail based on its user interface is quite laughable! Wow, maybe you forgot about a little device called the Droid incredible which was successful enough to be put on back order chump!...not everyone cares for rooting and ASAP updates to the latest OS. BTW I own the original Droid, love the vanilla experience!

    OK, i agree that sense should be optional in some way. It's not my cup of tea. I love HTC's hardware though.

    snip"Wow, maybe you forgot about a little device called the Droid incredible which was successful enough to be put on back order chump!"

    Back order due to short supply of amoled. chump.

    I'm waiting for this. then i'll be waiting for the next.

    So, that was HTC's plan.....I'm not mad at them at all...lol

    And the back order also had to do with a parts issue. There's no telling what the hold up with it is: demand or a screw up with manufacturing. Could be both.

    I tried Sense UI, I tried MotoBlur. I dont mind either one. If a phone is powerful and someone doesnt get it cuz of the UI......I mean c'mon....

    See like this article, it was written in Feb. How many ppl on this forum knew about this?

    Again, even more choices for folks in the near future...

    Resistance....

    Is....

    Futile.....

    WiMax support makes it sound more like a Sprint phone than Verizon.

    It might be good with battery life. The cpu technology gets better with power use as the years go by. It could actually have the same battery life that we see today. Might even be better.

    I was at an HTC event here in California last night and one of the HTC employees there actually said something about another HTC Android phone coming real soon but wouldn't tell me any details about it so I'm thinking this is what he was talking about.

    I believe he even said it was headed for Verizon but not sure (music was loud lol).

    I'm getting this phone, idc if its retail or not, as long as it has Sense, that 1.5 processor with a good GPU, no keyboard. My Moto Droid is getting a little too big for my liking.
