"Speedy" Sprint Phone Leaked to the Web

Paul Lilly

What you're looking at below is a leaked pic of a new HTC device for the Sprint network, which has sparked plenty of speculation as to which upcoming smartphone it's supposed to be.

If we're to believe the supposed Sprint employee who posted the pic , then you're looking at the HTC EVO Shift 4G. You can see that it sports a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, just like the original EVO 4G, but curiously missing is a front-facing camera. The whole thing also looks a little janky, if you ask us, which makes us wonder if this is anything more than a clever Photochop.

Adding to the mystery, Android Central posted projected launch dates for several upcoming phones, including the HTC A7373, which some folks believe is the EVO Shift 4G. If so, look for it to launch on January 9, 2010, though it might get a name change by then. According to Pocketnow , HTC may have dropped the EVO Shift 4G nomenclature and renamed this device "Speedy."

That's enough unconfirmed speculation for one post.
