HTC Vision is Viewed

First off, Happy Fourth of July!  Now, let’s get this started.  Everything after this point should be placed in the RUMOR folder.  You might remember talks of a new HTC Android phone with a full QWERTY keyboard when we were all going crazy over Project Emerald.  We said then that the rumored device was called the HTC Vision.  Back to present day, a picture of the so called HTC Vision has surfaced.  They say that this phone has a 3.7-inch display powered by a 1GHz processor (Snapdragon?) and Android 2.1 with Sense (but that doesn’t look like the current Sense UI).  Now, those don’t match up with the Superphone specs that we heard about in the past.  We will just need to wait and see what HTC brings to good ol’ Magenta in the future.  Leave your thoughts in the comments!

    Did anyone attend the frontline first event? They apparently showed a quick shot of a new super device launching this holiday season.

    • TMOprophet

      Any pics online????????

    • JAG

      Another slow snapdragon phone? With andreo GPU? SH*T

  • longsh0t

    No dual core processor. No 4.3″ screen. No FFC.

    While by itself it looks like it will still be a fantastic device I really hope the higher specs that were rumored previously still materialize this year.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      I know thats right. I want 4.3 in screen, ffc, flash (dual led or xenon), dual core, android gingerbread, 3.5mm headphone jack, Video out Preferably HDMI and HSPA+ capable. Give me that and I’ll be happy.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        and of course at least a 5mp camera (Carl Zeiss Optics Preferably)

      • NiiDiddy

        By the time you get that phone with these specs, I think they’ll have other rumors of phones with specs probably better than what you are currently asking for. You gonna hold on for those specs? Technology changes to quickly I hope you are happy soon and settle for a device after awhile… :)

      • adam

        I want 720p ffc with dual led light, dual xenon flash on a 12Mp camera with 4x optical zoom, quad core humming-dragon processor, Android Gougere, optical audio out AND in, 5g capable, 1080i out, 1TB onboard storage. Give me that, and a puppy, then I will be happy.

      • Wilma Flintstone

        @Niididdy, that list isn’t too far from whats out now. The Evo has Most of that stuff but I want to try to stay with Tmobile.

        @adam
        Well I want a phone that subs as a lightsaber and that can portray full lifesize holographic images. Beat that.

      • adam

        @Wilma Flintstone, I heard T-Mo will be getting a phone sometime next year that has a dowel attached and includes a pencil so you can draw stick figures. Patience my friend, patience.

      • TMOprophet

        Well if they make a phone that could sub as a lightsaber…I dont think I would need another phone for the rest of my life. I’d be set

  • ellothere

    there it is! now we just need another everything is free sale for both this and the vibrant…. :)

  • I think this might be a prototype, notice the serial number on the bottom right.

  • dave d

    amazing i cant wait till the scorpion processors come out i believe when they have more area with the HSPA+ they will come out with that front facing camera, scorpion processor and 8mp cam probably next year hopefully sooner but that’s really what i would call a super phone

  • theitguy

    I guess I will just have to wait until that 4.3″ dual core HTC phone comes instead of the Vision because if this is the HTC Vision I just lost complete interest.

    • TMOprophet

      AGREED!

    • TMOprophet

      Yep…. Same thoughts here! I have absolutely no interest in this thing…none what so ever…come on TMO you can do better than this crap.

  • Nick

    Well this’ll make me feel better about buying the Vibrant…

    • Ace

      Yea was thinking the same thing when the vibrant and this probably will get 3.0

  • cris

    Yuck ; ugly, would look better without keyboard and at least over 4-4.3 screen like they said it would but I don’t care though I’m getting the samsung vibrant. can’t wait for no phones anymore have to upgrade.

    • NiiDiddy

      i’m with you, cris

    • Stiiiwaiting

      Me too, to little too late.

  • alex76

    Ummm this basically looks like a nexus with a keyboard and optical pad…could this the rumored nexus enterprise from a while back??

    • swehes

      As long as it isn’t N2 that is built by motorola.

      • En2Mente

        That was actually just a rumor about motorola making the N2 that phone is now the droid 2

    • TMOprophet

      sure looks like it

  • John

    HTC Sense is turned off on this device, that’s why you don’t see it. Stock Android is running.

  • alex32

    if they come out with this on tmobile, i will be the first one in line for this phone. all i want is an android device by htc with a 3.7 inch screen and above, 2.1, and snapdragon, and keyboard.
    perfect, i hope this comes out soon to tmobile because i am so done with my curve 8900

    • interested

      I hope that ths is just soft prototype and they minimilistically change the looks a little bit, but i like it, and i like the specs….

      might replace my MTS

      • alex32

        i love it already, i know its the prototype but heck ill take it that way. the keyboard makes up the 3.7 inch screen so im really hoping this comes in november tops

  • Jason

    This is not getting the job done Magenta. Yet another phone that’s just okay. Where is our Evo/Droid Incredible/iPhone? I had a Nexus One (which got destroyed unfortunately) but that wasn’t really a Tmo phone, was it? Magenta, in my mind, is quickly becoming the least…. Adult of the big four carriers. A tmi rep told me recently that they have 26 phones coming out before the holiday. That’s great, but where is your flagship phone? How many Cliqs and Charms and MyTouches do you need? How about obtaining one, just ONE great phone? And I’m sorry, but a TouchWiz skinned Galaxy S isn’t it.

    HTC and Google and Tmo combined to bring Android to the world. Now that world has passed that association by.

    I’m going to give to tmo two months to put out a tentpole phone. If not, ill jump ship to Sprint. I suspect I’m not the only customer feeling this way.

    • Mingilicious

      I’m totally on board with what you’re saying. That EVO is damned sexy.

      • TMOprophet

        X2

  • if this is the htc vision ,another huge disappointment for magenta

    • Ace

      HOW? Since No FFC o.O

  • chotpy

    FINALLY! something i will want.

  • stephan brubaker

    really all this talk about hugh disappointment from Tmo when all of you are speculating what the Vision was supposed to be. there was no proof or concrete anything to say that the Vision was supposed to be this or that, you all put high hopes in something and when it doesn’t turn out to be that you blame the carrier. stop speculating and just wait and then phone in your opinion b/c all you do is make yourself look like a jackass.

    • Jason

      Its not disappointment with this phone in particular, it’s with Tmobiles general lack of a phone on the same level as it’s competitors. Not one. Verizon is launching superphones bi-annually, Magenta doesn’t have one. This makes me consider a Nokia N8 more and more.

  • Lamar

    I would get this just because of the keyboard and 2.1 alone, but i really hope this isnt the rumored phone they were talking about. FFC/Dual Core processor. would be excellent. here’s hoping they can deliver it.

  • MAX

    Chill out guys, this just a prototype

  • quikzilver

    How is the Samsung Galaxy S not on par with other carriers flagship phones?

    • stephan brubaker

      b/c according to them w/o the flash and FFC it’s a piece of sh*t.

      i’m counting down for it to come out. i’m using one line upgrade for this and then my second line comes up for an upgrade in Feb so if all these “GREAT” phones come out for X-mas by then they will be down in price and all the initial problems will be fixed and i’ll be snatching one up.

      but this will satisfy my lust in the 8 months inbetween

    • 30014

      I don’t look at the SGS as tmo’s flagship phone because it’s not exclusive to tmo. Nobody’s going to change carriers to get the same phone that’s available on their current carrier. Just saying.

    • Matt

      Because it’s not a flagship phone when everybody gets it.

  • AgDon

    Hopefully this is the Nexus 2 and not the Vision. But would still be a good get for TMO.

    • NexusCrzy

      there wont be a nexus 2 google has already announced it since they got it right the first time with the nexus 1

  • Barry

    Man I’d seriously be lying if I said I was as hype as I was about a half hour ago before I saw this.

  • Barry

    Google CEO just said no go for nexus one a day or two ago then this but if this is a nexus two which it looks like I’m cool with that give me the vision that was rumored

  • pimpstrong

    well if i was in the market for a 3.7″ superphone then i would be all over this. cant see why there’s only a 4 row KB but its still cool. I just want a min 4″ screen.

  • rev2redlineguy

    It definately looks like a Nexus 2. I actually like it except the keyboard looks a little funky. But hey, if it has that 1Ghz processor on it, I’m game! As someone mentioned, it’s a prototype so maybe they’ll tweak it up a bit. I’m excited to see what becomes of this. So far I like it alot!

  • Daniel

    All I can say is..the phone better not be it (not that it’s a bad phone), HTC Vision and/or Project Emerald was hyped so much that looking at these pics is kinda disappointing, but there still a lot of time left til the Holiday season so…only time will tell. *keeping fingers crossed*

  • NewGuy

    Oh my God Tmo sucks! That’s the Vision? It doesn’t have a 10″ screen and six cameras? It doesn’t come with a full detachable keyboard and a lawn chair? It won’t pick my kids up from school and put them to sleep at night after reading them a bedtime story? It won’t take my wife out for a romantic evening? It doesn’t cook breakfast and have dinner waiting for me when I get home? What a piece of crap! Tmo needs to fire everyone associated with it and DT needs to sell Tmo to someone else so we can get better phones! Damn this sucks! Burn in hell Tmo!!

    Geez people, it’s a phone. Like he said, RUMOR. And HTC makes lots of phones. No one said this is the mother of all phones that is supposed to help Tmo take all its followers to the mothership beyond the comet…it is one of MANY HTC phones. It’s idiots like you that give every company a bad name, cause you come on these forums, get all excited, spread rumors, build hype, then when anything is released you morons bash it and give it horrible reviews because it doesn’t live up to your nerdy wet dreams. It’s a phone, if you don’t like it, don’t buy it and shut up.

    • Matt Hatter

      *applause*

    • rinklighter

      Hahaha, nice. All these posters flying into a rage over a prototype.

    • Jay

      Pure win.

    • NiiDiddy

      *applause* also

    • TMOprophet

      Actually HTC doesnt make a ton of phones…check the FCC filings on engadget every friday…you must be thinking of Samsuck. In fact HTC puts out a phone few and far between, but you would already know that if you knew what the hell you were talking about…which you dont. And yes its just a rumor, hopefully it stays one.

      ANd everyones expectations are not unrealistic, other carriers are offering a product that these customers want, as good business, TMO should also offer a similar product. But your too ignorant to know anything about good business, you just want to jump in a hot blog and start being a smart ass. GO find somewhere else to be a prick.

      • NewGuy

        You make me laugh tmoprophet :)

      • TMOprophet

        Back at ya. And you still have yet to prove any legitimate point..I at least have made several, and unlike you my statements are often based around the facts available

    • Borg

      +10

    • Wilma Flintstone

      but it does pick your kods up from school and put them to sleep. :'(

    • TonyJohns

      *STANDING OVATION!*

  • Matt Hatter

    I’ve heard rumors of a G2. I can say for sure that there were meant to be 2 lines of flagship devices. The G series and the MyTouch. Kinda resembles what one would imagine that a new G device would resemble. Everything but the Jay Leno chin.

  • badaphooko01

    finally some interesting news, its been real slow here the last couple of days. I personally can’t wait for the vibrant to drop, its all I will need from a phone for a while. Just wish Tmobile would have more info on the phone such as pricing (even though we know what it is) and preorder details. Whats taking so long?

  • NiiDiddy

    prototype big time. this is a RUMOR, we don’t know much still, so people just chill out and let’s see where this leads in the near future.

  • frankie sanchez

    first of all this is NOT the htc vision specs are off no 4.3in screen no android 3.0 wrong cpu and there is not supposed to be sense etc… second of all the keybord has hints of blue which normally means AT&T and wasnt at&t supposed to get an htc slider a couple of months back? link:http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/04/27/mystery.htc.android.messager.gets.fcc.approval/

  • legendary1022

    I never really bought into the Project Emerald hype to begin with, but this HTC Vision is severally disappointing. Look at that janky keyboard, HTC you guys built the touch pro 2! What happened to that keyboard? I am hoping for something a lot like the Samsung Epic 4G for Sprint, only I love HTC (and xda lol, thanks Cyanogenmod for making my N1 sing). Samsung just makes me super nervous (update history, or lack of, and stupid touchwiz). HTC fix that keyboard and you may have a buyer. I’ve been praying for something like my Nexus One but with a great keyboard, not some janky thing that looks like

  • Snapdragon and a keyboard? That’s all I need to be happy. I’ll take two.

  • Mooch

    It’s not too shabby. I’m sure it’ll have Verizon, AT&T or Sprint’s name on it once it’s released. Too high end for TMO.

    • NiiDiddy

      no difference between this and nexus one, except for keyboard and optical pad. AND Tmobile had the Nexus One first. if you don’t consider the Nexus One high end, well, then this cant be high end too since they are basically the same phone spec-wise except for the differences i mentioned. if nexus one landed at Tmobile, this can land too. Let’s see what the future holds for this prototype.

      • negtne

        Would everybody quit saying the nexus one is a tmo phone. Its not! Is it sold in tmo stores? Is it warrantied by tmo? No its not……quit saying it. I will not buy a phone I cannot physically walk into a store and warranty.

      • NiiDiddy

        @nedtne – you did not READ; open your eyes and READ. I said “AND Tmobile had the Nexus One first”. If you don’t understand I’ll break it down to your level. It means Google released the phone for the Tmobile network first, before releasing it to the other networks that have it. Hopefully this was simpler to understand!!!

        I didn’t say the Nexus One was a Tmobile phone. And who cares if you will not buy a phone you couldn’t physically walk into a store for? What floats your boat, is what floats your boat… la-ti-da!!

      • negtne

        I wasn’t just talking about your post. I meant in general to a lot of posts.

  • dustin

    Jesus u guys are never satisified. I work tmo pda tech and its people like u that piss me off. Never satisified with anything. Tmo doesn’t have the customer base to get exclusive super phones that u want. You aren’t going to get a 4ghz 12mp camera, 7 ffc’s and 32 flashes with android 7.0. Get over it, if u don’t like it go somewhere else and quit complaining. Its people like u guys that make me hate my job. Newguy is the only sensible person replying to this RUMOR

    • NiiDiddy

      Whoa there buddy. I haven’t complained one bit. In fact I pride myself in trying to shut people up sometimes. One of my posts made it clear its a RUMOR also. So don’t get stereotypical on here and give props to just “Newguy” – a lot of us aren’t that bad.

      Having said that, I applaud what you just wrote!!!

    • Deee_lite

      @ dustin: You should heed your own advice and get a new job.

      Jerks like you are the reason we hate calling technical support.

      If you hate customer service so bad you are in the wrong industry my friend.

    • TMOprophet

      And its idiots like you that dont realize that if TMO would just put out a device to rival the EVO and Droid X, that perhaps that customer base would get a lot larger like over night…if you dont like your job..then quit and let someone else do it..cause I would love to work for TMO…..jackass..oh and your stupid exaggerated claims of what people want..no people just want something that can compete with the competition…..7 FFC’c? once again your a jackass

      • NewGuy

        It’s called sarcasm Dude, look it up. And go take a jog around the block, play some video games, get laid…just do something to get rid of that pent up aggression.

      • TMOprophet

        No its called being a douche bagn and its not pent up aggression. I am just one of the many that share the same thoughts.

      • Bruce Banner

        Newguy get off of dustin’s cock. He gives you a shout out and you return the favor by kissing his ass on a popular blog. You’re pathetic man.

    • Dale Murphy

      and if u dont like your job at tmoble, quit. if u hate the customers who state their opinions on the company’s products (and indirectly pay your salary)… then quit.

      by the way, what is your name? i am reporting you to tmobile’s senior management and your front line supervisor.

      • TMOprophet

        nice one :)

  • Deee_lite

    Why would an user need both a 4.3″ screen AND a slide out keyboard?

    That screen is huge. The slide out hardware is just wasted space and adds bulk.

    Not trying to be a prick but it just seems like unnecessary weight to any device. I think users have convinced themselves due to problems with smaller touchscreens in the past that they will die without a physical keyboard.

    • TMOprophet

      Actually, I agree, leave out the keyboard on a 4.3,, its not needed.

  • TMOprophet

    If this is what TMO is getting as a phone to battle sprint and verzion..then TMO sucks. While HTC generally makes great phones…this just isnt what everyone has been wanting. The previous specs that were rumored were much more exciting. I am going to have to believe that this device is in no way related to what is supposed to be coming to TMO.

  • 2C

    I’m actually hoping this is not project emerald but the Nexus One Pro. I say that because the specs are kind of a let down compared to what was rumored. It could easily be the G2 cause that does look like a chin on the bottom of the screen. I just hope its stock Android…whatever it is.

  • Chris

    This looks like a phone I had back in the 80’s. LOL! They just took it out of the bag.

  • Dale Murphy

    will you guys stop talking about a nexus 2. there will not be one see the link below and forever be quiet about it.

    http://www.itproportal.com/portal/news/article/2010/7/3/no-google-nexus-two-phone-says-eric-schmidt/

  • vinny

    IMO the size is perfect. i have a Nexus One and if I was to replace my killer phone with a new one the onlly thing I would want is more memory, FFC, keyboard and throw in the dual processor. I think the Nexus One is still the best phone made. I can live without the FFC for now. Bring on the Nexus two.

  • Dale Murphy

    this may or may not be project emerald but if it is, i am getting a nexus one.

  • En2Mente

    It could be the vision, the leaked specs were never confirmed to belong to the vision, just for a T-mobile phone. Some believe the vision and the famous project emerald are two different phones. Maybe this is just more proof of that.

    • TMOprophet

      I hope your right

  • bigc17

    Ok, i’m not tryin to sound ungrateful for the phones tmo has put out or is going to put out soon but here is a clue t-mobile, give your customers what they want and don’t keep leading them on with rumors and stuff. Right now, when it comes to having the best of the best phones (not just superphones) t-mobile is pretty much in last place and really needs to step up their game if they don’t want to get beaten out by every phone carrier in every way. This photo that we’re seeing of the suspected htc vision coming to tmo sometime is kind of a dissappointment to me because it doesn’t even have any of that htc charm that phones like the hd2, evo and the incredible have, even for a prototype model. I aint sayin that this new superphone has to look exactly the same or even at all but come on htc, at least give it some flavor like your other superphones. T-Mobile needs to do four things to up the anty on these other carriers 1.) Get phones that people want like superphones 2.) Expand your regular 3G coverage and hspa+ coverage 3.) Don’t put out any bogas rumors about a phone people actually want and 4.) Don’t wait till the last minute to release the specs, prices and release date of any of your phones oh yeah ps. Don’t just release one good phone a year. If the phone in this picture is the vision, i’m not gonna even think about gettin it unless this is a prototype and they improve on the design and the specs listed above. This is just my take on things.

  • dsim91

    i have a nexus and it is the best phone i have ever carried, it kills my HD2. so if this is a nexus with a slide out qwerty,then it should shut up some of the crybabies. but if you are going to say it doesn’t have a 4.3 inch screen, then i say shut up and wait for something that does, or you always have the option to go somewhere else. so STFU already.

  • TMOprophet

    The HD2 looks a million times better than this thing…hardware wise.

  • bigc17

    * 8 mp+ camera with dual led or xenon flash
    * 720p – 1080p HD video recording
    * 4.3 – 4.5 inch HD screen
    * Front facing video camera
    * 800mhz – 1.6 ghz dual core processor
    * Full qwerty keyboard or slim design
    * HDMI port and/or tv out
    * Android 2.2 or higher
    * 8 – 16GB built in storage and 8 -16GB sd card included class 4 or higher
    * Flash 10.1
    * Full HSPA+ support
    * Long battery life (8 hours or more)
    * reasonable price $200.00 – $250.00
    * soon release date

    This T-Mobile superhone would have to be at least this good for me to get it but, i could work without some minor features.

    • Jay

      Do you want it to make your bed as well?

    • TheLight

      I seriously like/want/would pay for these specs and might I add:

      2 Microphones for noise cancellation

      Gorilla Screen

      Full Coverage on insurance

      Throw in a wireless charger pad.. ;)

      Oh yeah, give it away free like you’ve been doing everything else…

      I said the last one to encourage the first 3..but a guy can dream cant he :) :) :)

  • Tj

    How do you even know this is the vision?

  • Celtic

    Will the bitching ever stop??? You people are so choosy, get out and get laid or something. Damn

    • TMOprophet

      IF this is the vision..then NO the bitching wont ever…and I mean ever stop
      Being choosy….not quite, just wanting something that can keep up with what the other carriers are offering!
      Getting laid? your probably the only one who needs to.

      ANd to everyone else whining about the complaining..get used to it! or GTFO!

      • Bradly

        These blogs are so entertaining! As to something that is a little bit more on topic I think we kinda get what we pay for. Would it be nice to get something like the EVO or Droid X of course, but then again it’s T-Mobile USA we’re the kids to the other 3 carriers her in the US. Sprint is I guess you could say the teenager with all the cool and hip. AT&T has a little bit of something for everyone, and the big V is all big and bad with well you guys know. I wish we were like our UK counterpart but no for some out of this world reason we can’t be. When has T-Mobile USA been top dog with phones besides the G1 and back then the iOS was in my opinion much better, but now not at all. I’m getting off topic now but as I said we get what we pay for, but if that new CEO would do anything to change where T-MO USA is at right now 2011 should be a good year for phones at T-MO. Just my two cents.

      • TMOprophet

        I dont agree entirely with that statement. Firstly I dont think that how popular the carrier is or how much money they make is relevent, because look at sprint they were sucking ass,,and then bam they landed the EVO. I think it has more to do with the decision making at the high levels of the company. While there might be some logic to the presumption that only the best carriers get the best phones, Sprint alone proves that this is not always the case. There is no reason why TMO couldnt just put out a device to satisfy this. And they still might ..we will have to wait and see.

      • Bradly

        Oh yes that is also true. I forgot to take into account that before Sprint got the Hero and EVO they weren’t that great either. I believe only time will tell if we shall get better phones or not. I hope the new CEO changes things for the better next year. Even if he raised prices for plans it doesn’t matter to me really. The only reason I stay with T-Mobile is because of the GSM technology because I travel a lot and AT&T in my area is to be blunt sucks donkey balls.

      • TMOprophet

        Yep Sprint was on the verge of going out, then they got a new CEO(Dan Hesse) that turned the company around and helped them change the strategy and land the EVO. Hopefully TMO can do the same, although I dont think TMO is even in as bad a place as Sprint had been. I dont think TMO would even need to change thier rates, they just need a phone to pull in the dough and customer base

  • landon

    Take a real good look at the front of this phone, now go look at any sidekick….notice anything? Just saying…..

  • SoonerSaint12

    T-mobile, too little, too late. Lackluster as usual here.

    • GregP

      What would you propose to improve?

  • Serotheo

    the keyboard has a slight bump on the top.. maybe it’ll be able to tilt the screen? I like the phone, stop complaining guys, its ON PAR with other superphones hardware wise.. its incredible with a keyboard more closely tbh since is 3.7in screen. Anyways PROTOTYPE.. just like a TV Episode.. “to be continued..” It’ll probably rise back up in a few months.

      Specs are okay, but the device is definitely not as cool. Have you held an Aria? or an Incredible? Look at them real close, everything about them is purposeful and meticulously crafted with elegance in mind.

      Sorry the whole bottom of the device looks lame..and the track pad is not anywhere as elegant as the Aria track pad.

      And the keyboard? Get real HTC..it looks like a tweeny bopper text centric Gravity 3 keyboard….

      Why can’t we just get good looking devices on T-Mobile! I know a lot of poor/bad credit people use T-Mobile, and for whatever reason they like phones that look like that (no joke you so a hillbilly a highlight or a Droid and they like the look of the highlight better..my mind explodes everytime!) But some people like T-Mobile because they are responsible with their money and purposely choose a discounted carrier for financial reasons, not to mention T-Mobile offers great customer service.

      So please T-Mobile, stop catering exclusively to the idiots!!!

      And no, the myTouch Slide also looks stupid T-Mobile, we aren’t 12!!!

      • TMOprophet

        I agree, its not on par with recent HTC releases. That causes me to speculate that their is no way this could be coming to us in that form, it would be a total fail…cause its plain boring and ugly, Also keep in mind that Sprint was on the verge of dying and somehow managed to get the EVO..so whats TMO’s excuse.

      • Dale Murphy

        well, their credit must be somewhat decent otherwise the customers you are flaming could only get prepaid. tmobile does do credit checks.

      • Black Hawk Solidus

        I like the look of the highlight more than the droid. But then again, I like the MyTouch phones over most other android offerings. I would love to see more phones with the specs of the droid on T-Mo, but the droid looks like a confussed rectangle to me.

  • Mr. T

    Yup, this is definitely a legit picture that proves without a doubt this is coming to T-Mobile? How do I know this? Because this is a POS looking phone, and T-Mobile always gets the crappy looking ones :)

    If this looked cool like the Aria, or the Droid Incredible, I would be all “WTF FAKEE!!!!”

    [/rant about how I am fed up with T-Mobile getting boring looking devices]

    • 2FR35H

      Aria doesn’t look cool lmao!

  • newmexican

    Actually,

    I am surprised that TMO cannot get any “superphone”. They started the Android success for Google and HTC with the G1 (I got mine in the first pre-order). Why can’t they set the pace again. Also we G1 early adopters need some respect (in form of a good replacement of our G1s). While I do not ask for the best in all categories I am very disappointed right now. In the Galaxy S family only the Sprint variety (Galaxy S Pro) can be considered a likely successor of the G1 and if I look at this HTC Vision shot, the keyboard is an embarrassment compared to the old G1 keyboard. SO if anybody at TMO reads this: I am willing to pay a good price for a worthy G1 replacement that picks up where the G1 was in October 2008 (setting the pace among smartphones)!
    End of Rant

    • Thanh

      My last hope was the HTC Vision. I was also one of the early adopter G1 Pre-Orders, and have been waiting for a phone worthy to replace my G1. Sadly although this is better than my G1, it still doesn’t get me excited. I had alot of hopes for the Vibrant but if its not a HSPA+ phone then I’m definitely not getting it…. This leak of the Vision has confirmed for me that tomorrow or Wednesday I will be going to AT&T and ordering an Iphone4g since I’ve been out of contract w/ Tmobile for a few months now….. I really liked the Verizon and Sprint android phones but the Iphone has much better battery life than any of the HTC phones. Sorry Magenta, my family plan still consists of 4 other phones that are still in contract but as I go, so will my wife & kids phones as they expire. Sorry, I tried to stick it w/ Magenta for as long as I could…. but us G1 guys took a chance w/ HTC/Android before they were anything and now we feel like a forgotten market.

      • going_home

        I was also one of the original G1 pre-orders and got tired of waiting on TMO.Just go buy a MyTouch 3G off Craigslist used (got mine for $100.00). Then go to beta.swype.com and put Swype on it and bam, you have a better phone than the G1. And the MT3G is going to get 2.2 Froyo ! Then just hang out till TMO comes up with a phone to knock our socks off. Thats what I did.
        :0

  • soon2TMO

    i dont care about this phone, im getting the vibrant!! and will be with me for at least a year or year 1/2 , then ill get a better one.. FFC, dual processor, scropion whatever, so on so forth..

    why does this phone reminds me of the MT3G slide?? so this phone will have a keyboard, and the dual core processor will have a kewboard as well… so is tmo into collecting these type of phones?? i doubt the dual core will have a keyboard anyway.. i bet it wont!

    PS.. the EVO does not look sexy at all, the HD2 looks sooo much better..
    evo is overrated… blecch hehe LOL

  • female_fone-geek

    All you guys are idiots if you were to read you can clearly see that it says rumor to be a bunch of morons

    • Bobomo

      You don’t understand. The posters here, like many sites on the internet comment based on the tried-and-true “THIS IS PROOF OF WHAT I ALREADY BELIEVE IN!!!” theorem.

      The fact that this is clearly a rumor doesn’t matter. Nor does the fact that it is clearly test hardware. And the fact that this is just a couple pictures and the word of someone we’ve never heard of? Doesn’t mean a damn, because “I ALREADY HAVE AN OPINION AND I CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO CHANGE IT I JUST REPEAT IT ALL DAY LONG AS LOUDLY AND WITH AS MUCH VULGARITY AS POSSIBLE!!”

      Critical thinking is hard, so why bother?

    • 2FR35H

      Samsung Galaxy S was a rumour and became true even worse they cut it down and didn’t even want to add hspa+ or something else to replace the Navigation button or the FFC.

      T-Mobile is constantly messing up. Sure this could be a rumour and it could also not be. I hope it is a rumour and not a fact because we will have just been had again. What happened to Dual-Core Goodness and 4.3 inch screen with a qwerty keyboard and Android 3.0? If this is the HTC Vision then I will pass on it and just get the Samsung Vibrant now.

      • J-Hop2o6

        it NEVER HAD HSPA+ to begin with.

      • Davidohio

        You do understand that just because the vibrant is not hspa+ dedicated that it will still use the hspa+ network for enhanced speeds right? 7.2mbps max but that is still really fast with the 1ghz processor. I do not even care at ALL that it is not hspa+ dedicated. It will still be blazing fast! Google it.

  • Matt

    You can say that the EVO is overrated, and it may even look worse than the HD2, but Windows Mobile is a complete fail…I’ve had the HD2 for two weeks and was planning on keeping it until Christmas when some new phones hopefully drop, but I’m wishing more and more I had just returned it, and leaning more towards taking a loss and getting the Vibrant when it comes out.

    • TMOprophet

      Android is almost ready for the HD2, hold on to it…Im thinking about getting it if they can get a stable rom ready, they already have a test build available for download, but its not the final version.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      I’m definitely with you on getting rod of the HD2. I have been through sheer turmoil with mine. Only problem I am running into is that in my opinion, Tmo doesn’t have a good enough phone to replace it with. The Vibrant to me is a stripped down mess so I have to wait longer.

  • Matt

    Yeah back on topic…I’d totally take this phone right now if it was being released. The biggest problem I see is that by the time T-Mobile actually releases this phone, once again all other carriers will have something nicer and T-Mobile will pump up this phone even though it is once again inferior to competitor’s products.

  • Matt

    I’ve been watching the development of Android for the HD2, and its definitely progressing, but I still don’t know that it will ever get to the point where it is as usable as an Android phone. I guess I’ll have to wait and see how good the Vibrant is in comparison and decide if its worth spending the difference to get it. I’d love to see Android on the HD2 though, it is the nicest phone I’ve owned in terms of hardware and design. Also love the hardware buttons as opposed to the touch sensitive ones on the Vibrant and some other newer phones.

    • TMOprophet

      That HD2 is pure sex…I love it, if they get froyo rocking on it, that might be my next phone, but right now they only are getting 2.1 almost working on it, so we will see. The HD2 is better looking than the EVO, but dont get me wrong I like the EVO too, some say that kickstand is stupid, but once you realize just how functional it is, you cant imagine it without.

  • TheLight

    1st of all Happy 4th everryone, even though its past 12 central… I think we still have to remember that T-Mobile is rebooting their strategy to compete with other major 3 carriers.. buuuuuuut

    They continue to win the best customer service award

    They continue to change and customize their rate plans so that they can fit everyone for a low price

    Even though they are mid range, low range, and non-superphones Magenta is beefing up the phone lineup. Note: The Vibrant is great phone (Im not getting it, waitng on a superphone with 1ghz and 5 row qwerty keyboard..lol) and the rumor mill is hot for a superphone coming so Im not given up hope :)

    BUT, T-Mobile I have an issue with you holding ota updates, taking so long to get a superhone, taking away my faves, letting everyone else pass us in the Android Google game, and over dramatizing the release of the Vibrant(a phone every other carrier has)…lol..

    Lets be patient people…Come on with superphone and ota updates Magenta….

    Have a goodnight everyone

  • Barry

    I think Freddie Sanchez hit the nail on the head I remember a while back at&t supposedly getting a slider phone and I remember it being called HTC Vision and that keyboard wrecks at&t looks just like my tilt kb. I was gonna ask if anyone thinks this is a legit pic.

  • ebatr8

    this phone looks good if they made it all black id buy how it is already there is not one phone out yet on any carrier with full keyboard and snapdragon but hopefully they polish it more and release soon. to everyone here ranting about tmobile GTFO nobody here cares if you leave tmobile or if your dissapointed in them you dont run a business so stop thinking you know whats right for them to do and whats not they cater to there customers the mytouch slide is great its an easy to use phone for the public other android devices arent as easy to use for people getting there first smartphone if your dissapointed go get yourself a phone on another carrier pay vzw’s expensive rates, get sprints crappy customer service or drop calls on at&t with the jesus phone. Lastly no company cares about the needs of the more techy customers which is why apple designs the iphone for the mass public making it a closed source, android is mainly for google to get its services to everyone and the other carriers pick android up because it competes with the iphone but they dont care that you want 4.3″ screens or dual processors end of story

  • Marcus Armstrong

    the scorpion processor everyone is talkin about is gonna be on the HTC HD3. Unfortunately, its not gon be android. its a Windows Phone 7 OS phone. even a 486GHz GorillaHULKZebra processor w/ 5TB of Ram and 680,680,686GB of On board storage w/ a 101.1MP camera w/ tripple xeon gamma ray flash w/ 458G data speeds cant make Windows Mobile phones betta than even Android 1.5, let alone Android 2.2 LMFAO..and ppl its jus a prototype. i’ll give it 2 weeks and another prototype will be on here thats better

    • James L

      because wp7 will run exactly the same as 6.5…. friggin idiot

    • TMOprophet

      I think they proved that HD3 rumor to be a fake. Just read about it yesterday or the day before that.

      • En2Mente

        I think they only proved the picture that’d floating around as fake, but the specs are still debatable.

      • En2Mente

        I think they only proved the picture that’s floating around as fake, but the specs are still debatable.

  • TMOprophet

    New thoughts, I dont think we need to worry about this being what we get as a EVO like phone, TMO has been making changes lately and I firmly believe that they have something in store for us later in the year. WHile this phone may come to fruitation as more compact high powered phone, I dont think that this is what TMO’s answer to the EVO and Droid X will be, Im pretty sure that the HTC rep that ran his mouth in seattle was indeed spilling some beans for a dual core, 4.3in android. Most likely to offset sales on the Vibrant. So Im not worried, I still think that we will get our super phone eventually. This is more or less either going to AT&T or coming to us as a prototype of a HTC Incredible rival for TMO. But that still leaves an empty slot for the dubbed superphone. DOnt worry everyone I still think theres a pot o gold at the end of our rainbow.

  • 2FR35H

    Personally I don’t really see this crap becoming a flagship Android 3.0 device its so lame!

    • Marcus Armstrong

      the same ppl who sayin this is a crap device is gonna drool ova it if it comes to tmo. i think this phone is sexy as a prototype. imagine how its gonna b when it comes out more sleek and polished. hopefully it will rival the Verizon Droid 2. 3.7 in screen, 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of Ram, 5MP cam w/ Flash, Android 2.1 w/ future ota for 2.2. hopefully they will add a d-pad to the keyboard like the motocliq. This will me a perfect phone marketable for power users like us as well as reg Android users. Could turn Tmo in the right direction jus like the Droid did for veriozon and the G1 did for tmo. If we get it, please be sumthin we can afford like 179.99 or 199.99

      • 2FR35H

        Hmmm the same people would include me correct? because if I am then you sir are far from right you are left.

        However, if this phone is with the past rumoured specs then I can look past the hideous looks of this phone prototype.

        as far as looks go and this prototype Droid>Prototype.

        HTC better come with the dual core goodness that was said to be because once this is released in october it will definitely won’t be competing with something new seeing as it looks as if Dual Core and 2ghz processors are the New 1ghz of next year.

        Of course if T-Mobile prices this right it will sell. I would at most pay $129 on contract at the most for this. because with those specs its not worth $200 contract.

  • Jason

    Well this is, I feel, their best Android effort IF this were to be a Tmo phone. But, I am not a physical keyboard phone and look towards Sprint and Verizone with envy as they get the phones that are basically all face. That is all I truly want out of Tmo, a phone with all face, not one where a quarter of the front is taken up by bezel.

    …But if this is the best I could get my hands on in a couple months I would take it, as opposed to that Samsung junk which I feel no desire for.

  • drmosh

    whoever took the pictures needs to be shot… fuzzy, flash reflection… my only concern is the 4 line keyboard… not as good as the G1s keyboard…

  • Magnus

    this HTC Visson look suck.. cuz it’s only have 4 row keys… Galaxy S Pro have 5 row.. it’s better than Vision..

    I don’t understand why HTC make 4 row keys??? SMH

  • Eric

    Ya… pretty much everything about it turned out to be not true.
    http://briefmobile.com/htc-vision-specifications-and-pictures

    4.3? screen – no.
    Dual core processor – no.
    Gingerbread – no.

    Only the QWERTY keyboard survives. ;)

    • Wilma Flintstone

      eric, This is a rumor.

  • raymond

  • Davidohio

    What a surprise…the complainers are out in force again. Really guys just switch carriers already and get the phone you want for this month because most of us are sick and tired of all the complaining.

  • timdawg919

    Guess I’ll be staying with my nexus one as this seems to be a nexus one with a keyboard

  • lanenadebk

    Hopefully it’ll replace my hopes and dreams of what I had for the HTC HD2. And the keyboard is a GREAT addition!!

  • Barry

    I agree with tmoprohet I don’t think this is our vision. Tmo knows this doesn’t rival the Droid X, Evo, or Incredible. So I’m taking this for what its worth…a grainy pic of a at&t slider that was rumored a while back.

    • TMOprophet

      Even if this is the VIsion, I still think we will get a better device this year. Way back when the first VIsion rumors popped up, they said that it would be a desire or nexus like device with a keybaord, now this thing looks a lot like that desciption. So in any event I still think that 4.3 dual core will show up this year, and hopefully the form factor is like the evo or HD2

  • Barry

    Reeks* (from my first post lol)

    Maybe the pic above is another prototype of this

    • Dale Murphy

      nice find, Barry.

    • J-Hop2o6

      these are TWO different phones (and its obvious).. that AT&T phone has arrow keys.. “Vision” does not.. AT&T uses FN key–which shows in that picture.. T-Mobile uses ALT key–which shows in the “Vision” picture.. also the trackpad is different.

      I wonder what those dotted keys on the bottom of the “Vision” are.

  • TonyJohns

    What I don’t understand is if you are unhappy with T-Mobile’s phone selection, then why are you still with T-Mobile? If you want a phone like the Evo? Well by gosh golly go on over to Sprint to scoop one up! Problem Solved.

    Same goes for the other phones. Want a phone like the Droid X, well I’m sure Verizon’s door is open. How about that iphone? AT&T should be open, waltz over there and get it!

    T-Mobile WILL NOT listen to your bitching and complaining. Money talks, and if you are not satisfied with T-Mobile, take your wallet to another carrier, then and only then will T-Mobile open their eyes.

    • Logic

      Maybe because we’re locked in contracts?

    • I couldn’t agree with TonyJohns more! Seems like basic deductive reasoning to me. If harware > customerservice and great coverage than why would you stay with TMO???

      Money talks, BS walks!

      Sent from what most would call a sub par Mytouch3G Slide on what most would consider a lack luster network.

      Happy TMO customer since 2001!

  • Barry

    I know the bitching is annoying and I said before Tmo customers are like us eagles fans everything is jump off the Ben Franklin bad or super bowl championship good lol but I feel the reason for this beef is the name, if this was the nexus two or the desire pro I don’t think it would be like this. the fact that the name “vision” is linked to this image ppl are getting bent outta shape because of the rumored specs we’ve read about months ago. Personally I’m getting the vibrant to hold me over until something big comes which should be soon.

  • Mlynch01

    This will be Tmo’s answer to the Droid 2. The Vision will be a whole other beast, and you people are crazy because everyone was asking for a 1ghz phone with keyboard. You get one and now your complaining? Come on people you should be happy that this will possibly be an option on Tmo’s lineup. It will be a great addition, you people will never be satisfied.

  • IneedAG1Replacement

  • brigini

    The pic looks fake. The keyboard doesnt have dedicated number keys, and look at the edges…where/how does it slide. I think the Vision will be more than this article suggests, theyve already been talking about dual processors and such for it. I’m just saying, I DEFINITLEY think this pic is fake, just some parts put together and taken a picture of.

  • Chad

    IF this is real, this is more Nexus Enterprise than Vision. It’s running 2.2 with an HTC background, and because there is no 2.2 landscape home screen yet, the side icons are removed. This is NOT running any type of Sense.

    • El Guapo

      “there is no 2.2 landscape home screen yet”

      What???

      • Chad

        There isn’t a QWERTY Android 2.2 phone yet which would need the home screen to flip landscape. The homes screen doesn’t change orientation unless there is a keyboard to slide out, that’s happened since the beginning.

  • Tony

    I’m surprised no one has said that this thing looks exactly like an HTC branded version of the MyTouch Slide..I’ll bet this will be AT&T’S version of the MTS with a better processor and stock HTC Sense without T-Mobile’s horrible UI customizations.

    • TMOprophet

      THe Mytouch slide is made by HTC, and no this would more likely rival motorolas droid 2 thats coming soon, and yes hopefully it goes to att cause its kinda lame looking

      • Tony

        Yes, but MyTouch is a T-Mobile trademark. I think this is going to be AT&T’s version of the MyTouch Slide, albeit with HTC branding and somewhat better specs, possibly a Snapdragon. AT&T probably wants an Android QUERTY device for those people that absolutely can’t stand a touchscreen keyboard.

        Think of what HTC Dream was to the G1…and you have your phone. The Blue Buttons are telltale signs of AT&T also.

    • this looks nothing like the mytouch slide wtf r u talking about

  • Ansel

    This is clearly not the HTC Vision…I wouldn’t be surprised if some idiots just photoshopped this bih just to get people talking smh…I doubt that HTC would make something so beautiful like the EVO and then turn around to make this garbage…yeah, next story please!!

    This is one of the best threads ever on TMoNews, FOR THE FRIGGIN HUMOR OF IT ALL.

    I can’t believe it. The typical morons badmouthing T-Mobile on a rumored handset where:

    We don’t know the specs.

    We don’t know the form factor/design.

    We don’t know if it is coming to T-Mobile.

    Whatever it is, we don’t know when it will debut.

    We don’t know when it will debut at T-Mobile, if it is in fact coming to T-Mobile.

    We don’t know pricing.

    We can’t even clearly see what it is, meaning they are crappy pics.

    Despite all these unknowns, you have taken an Engadget-revealed set of pics and attributed it to being a new T-Mobile handset and pretty much badmouthed every aspect of it and said T-Mobile sucks, is a crappy company and that it has once again failed.

    Of course when the phone debuts (if it ever does) and it goes to another carrier, you will then praise of all aspects of it and say how crappy T-Mobile is for not getting what you then declare is a hot phone. ;)

    Oh, and you will also threaten to switch to that carrier if T-Mo within your self-imposed time limit does not get a similar phone. :)

    • TMOprophet

      There’s a simple solution to all this. TMO actually getting a phone to directly compete with what Verzion and Sprint are offering their customers. And I do agree with most of your points, but once again there isn’t really any reason that TMO has to be the last carrier to offer up the goods. While there are many that will defend TMO and discredit the customers who are voicing their opinions, all the defending of TMO in the world will not stop TMO from losing customers who want a phone that is similar to the EVO or Droid X. Personally I will wait and see whats coming down the road, but others have a right to switch carriers if they feel that TMO hasn’t been able to keep up with its competitors.

    • TMOprophet

      Also cutting down those customers is wrong, its through those customers that a business such as TMO can become more successful. People should be allowed to voice their opinions and concerns, because frankly it’s the only thing they can do(aside from switch carriers) to communicate with TMO about what they want in product lineup and services. And I know that TMO encourages customers to voice their desires cause in turn it helps TMO create and develop better products and services that can make them as a company succeed.

      So lose the arrogance and the high and mighty “I know more than everyone” attitude.

      • JermaineJacksonhair

        Preach!

        Bottom line, Tmobile is one big fail in the handset dept. They should be happy people are bitchin and complaining and continue to pay them month to month because they’ve done something right but is obviously coming up short.

        Its up to tmo now to make the complainers shut up or lose them.

        Consumers defending these big companies sound dumb.

      good points, but just by the looks of this and that rumored spec..i like this phone. hell ill take it as it is. i wish this can go to tmo soon, this is the kind of phone i need.

  • Brian

    disappointing. i want a dual core phone soon

  • TareX

    This is the Nexus Enterprise, not the HTC Vision. Engadget knows crap.

  • Casper

    Regardless of if this is the vision, project emerald, or has nothing to do with t-mobile, you could have done the guy a solid and edited out the serial number from the lower right of the phone… someone will lose a job over that.

  • aaronkt

    for what its worth GSM arena is calling it “Vision is a Desire twin with a sliding full QWERTY keyboard, ”

    about half way down the page.

  • Barry

    Yea I read that about the UK thing also. and something about the HTC Ace.

  • allofyou

    Good god u all crack me up. So much complaining about getting a superphone. Manufactuers rarely through so much money into a superphone for a small company. Tmobile has the smallest customer base out of the 4 major players. Manufactuers want gaurantees that their phone will sell enough for them to profit. Yes a lot of people have pda’s with t-mobile, however the larger base is still phone-first devices. A company puts out a major phone for companies like verizon all the time because they know out of the 80 million plus customers they will self enough devices. One major phone isn’t going to make enough customers jump ship unless the company has a large enough fanbase, such as apple.

    • allofyou

      Correction: not all of you, there are some intelligent responses here.

    • TMOprophet

      Then how do you explain Sprint? Cause they were on the verge of going out and then magically got the EVO and turned the whole company around. They were worst off than TMO has ever been. It has nothing to do with customer base, or how little money they say they have….the customer base can explode in one day, look what happened on the EVO’s launch day. TMO simply made a mistake in strategy by not locking in a device early enough to get the jump on the rest. Sprint was not better than Verzion, yet they still got the first major superphone. What it boils down to is what the big shots high in the ranks are deciding to do with the company.

  • da-ku

    well take this with a grain of salt…but my manager was out for a week on a T-mobile meeting in Seattle and he was saying that a G2 was shown and mentioned on one of the meetings and was passed around briefly..he said the phone was thin and light compare to the G1 but not his taste design wise..i told him to go to this website to check the picture of this phone and hes pretty sure this was the phone that was passed around. so who knows this might finally really be the real successor of the g1.

    • TMOprophet

      your right this is the successor to the G1

  • Alex

    This just might be the rumored nexus one with a qwerty.
