    Remember that big, honking red-and-black HTC slider that dwarfed an EVO 4G? It's back sporting Verizon colors just as we were told, and with a few more confirmed specifications thanks to the ever-reliable FCC. The HTC "PD42100" is still missing a proper internal codename, but test reports confirm it's ready for at least CDMA 2000 and GSM 850 plus EV-DO Rev. A, Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n WiFi at 2.4GHz frequencies.

    There's no word on that 1.2GHz processor or 4-inch display, but it's clear we're looking at some chunky chiclet keys and there's definitely a removable battery. We can't wait to get our hands on what surely looks like the new king of Droids. HTC's dual-mode Android slider at the FCC

    Update: As it turns out, the size of the screen has been staring us in the face for hours -- we just had to think back to high school geometry class, specifically the Pythagorean Theorem.

    Starting with the FCC's handy-dandy picture of the phone's rear next to a square ruler, we had only to superimpose an image of the front on top, then calculate the diagonal (after translating to inches, of course) to discover it was a 4-inch display all along. Oh, and the phone has EV-DO Rev. A for data

    "but test reports confirm it's ready for at least CDMA 2000 and GSM 850 plus EV-DO Rev. A"

    It means it's a dual mode or world phone. It has a CDMA radio and a GSM radio.

    The keyboard is waay to spread out and big. Not to mention, it doesn't even look good. Certainly doesn't go with the front panel, which looks a little Evo-esk

    Motorola is supposed to be making the Droid Pro, not HTC. Hopefully, that rumor is true, and this is not the Droid Pro. If it is, huge disappointment...

    I like the keyboard but to each his own. But the way android is evolving we will see so many different devices that fits everyone's needs. And this is what makes android a nice o.s.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a nice phone...until you see the keyboard. IMHO, it looks like cheap plastic (thought the same about the Nexus One). But like you said, that's my own opinion. I like the phone until the kb is revealed ;)

    I don't think HTC is paying for the rights to use "Droid" like Moto is.
