T-Mobile Carrying HTC Mystery Device, The “Doubleshot?”

Not too long we told you to remember the codename “Pyramid,” as it would belong to the name of an upcoming Android phone sure to excite T-Mobile masses. Now, we ask you to remember the name “Doubleshot.” Admittedly we’re short on details unlike the Pyramid where we at least knew the latter was a 4.3 Android phone. What we do know is that the “Doubleshot” is the name of another HTC device. Now, let’s preface this by saying it could be a phone, tablet, unicorn or the missing link from the Cubs chances at a World Series. From what we have been told, it is in fact a phone though we emphasize we can’t anything with 100% certainty.

With CTIA right around the corner we can only hope that T-Mobile will preview a slew of upcoming devices with the hopes of building up anticipation for the second half of the year. There is no time frame for the release of the “Doubleshot” and a quick Google search yielded no hints as to what it could be. All we can say, is that we hear its running Android 2.3 as is the Pyramid.

So Pyramid, Doubleshot, names to remember!

    I can tell you a few things here about the Doubleshot here guys:

    1) It IS the Pyramid and that name was never confirmed nor to be in existence. Was just a rumor.

    2) HTC is copying Sprint here with the dual (DS) screen. The name Doubleshot all but gives it away. That and the name makes sense.

    3) Will be out between April and May and priced at either $149.99 or $199.99 with a rebate (mail in).

    4) Specs are correct except it will also have a FFC and flash. Also, 8 MP in back and 2 MP in front (Although the front can change).

    5) HTC has said this is a new thing that they are trying. Basically this is an experimental phone.

    6) May or may not be a 4G device.

    7) Might have T Mobile TV on it as well as some other surprise goodies but that’s not yet finalized.

    8) Will come with HTC Sense ( A favorite of mine).

    9) Won’t use stock Android.

    I will be at the show and will be at T Mobile’s event.

      2) HTC is copying Sprint here with the dual (DS) screen. The name Doubleshot all but gives it away. That and the name makes sense. REALLY? SO THERE’S NO WAY DBLSHOT MEANS DUALCORE,OR DUAL BOOT? YOU SOUND SO CONFIDENT. SOURCES PLEASE?

      3) Will be out between April and May and priced at either $149.99 or $199.99 with a rebate (mail in).THAT’S EVERY HIGHEND PHONE IN MOST CARRIERS LINE UP. NICE GUESS.

      4) Specs are correct except it will also have a FFC and flash. Also, 8 MP in back and 2 MP in front (Although the front can change).<<<—–YOUR SOURCE ISN'T TOO SURE ON THAT? THESE ARE ALL GREAT GUESSES.

      5) HTC has said this is a new thing that they are trying. Basically this is an experimental phone. WHERE AND WHEN DID THEY SAY THIS???? THEY ARE GOING TO SHIP US "EXPERIMENTAL" PHONES?

      6) May or may not be a 4G device. AMAZING!!

      7) Might have T Mobile TV on it as well as some other surprise goodies but that's not yet finalized. THIS INFO BLOWS MY MIND? HOW DO YOU GET THESE TOP SECRET SCOOPS???

      8) Will come with HTC Sense ( A favorite of mine). DUH, SEE BELOW.

      9) Won't use stock Android.

        Hi Crazy Thunder:

        Let me be clear about something. I am a distributor of phones and accessories so I do have some inside knowledge of what’s going on here. What I meant by experimental was that this is something new for HTC that they have Not yet attempted. Contrary to what many have said, this is’t a My Touch phone or clone in any way shape or form. No pictures yet because either: A) Pone isn’t ready yet design wise or B) waiting for the unveiling at CITIA which is where T Mobile will be there with some announcements.

        2) The name DOUBLESHOT: I don’t know what Dual Boot is and Dual Core was already announced when this was rumored to be the Pyramid (which was never the official name anyway)

        3) The release date I actually got that off another site but that is also tentative. This phone is 1 of 2 that hasn’t officially been announced. The other is a Motorola (Begonia)windows phone.

        4) One note I forgot: 2.2 but will be upgraded to 2.3 shortly after release.

        5) Will have either Swift or Swype installed. (I was told some minor details were still being finalized).

        Anyway Crazy, I myself am looking forward to this phone as I’m waiting on this to use my upgrade eligibility. Assuming this phone ends up be crap, I’m going with the LG G2X.

          i’m just a wiseass at times. anyone can say anything out here and claim insider scoop. but i’ll take your word…for now. no harm intended.

        • HAHA HAHAHA

          Dear Marc, all i CAN say is HA HA HA HA HA! HA! You’re right on track buddy!!

          HAHAHHHAHAH lolol wwow fantastic analysis

        • Bluemonkey1

          Isn’t the begonia the cliq 2?

  • Adien

    This is another Mytouch franchise device…mytouch Slide 2. Not confirmed yet for release as there may be some “risks”.

  • Unrulywizdom

    Like someone else has commented, it sounds like a mytouch device.
    Double shot… expresso? Makes sense.

    • Guest099

      True. They do call the HTC Sense them Expresso

  • Kirbi182

    maybe its htc’s first dual core processor on tmo….

  • Flashy4bb

    the pyramid will be a dual core processor as well. the doubleshot will probably be a 1.5 dual core sdp. with sense ui.with dual boot…..just a dream, But what i am positive of is that it will be a dual core with front and rear cameras.

    • UniPink

      Indeed what u said does sound like a dream. Come on guys this is a UNICORN. I hope they make it in PINK =D

  • Flashy4bb

    guys, don’t forget we might see the new processor. maybe t mobile is upgrading ……moving from dual core the guess what?….dual x 2 = qual

  • stevo

    in all honesty……….. tmobile desperatly needs to hit the ball out of the park with this one. THEY ARE GETTING SLAUGHTERED by the product variety from the competition. if they dont then they will quickly see more of a mass exodus. verizon is slating to QUICKLY release the LG REVOLUTIION and HTC THUNDERBOLT. att released the MOTOROLA ATRIX . T-MOBILE………………. NEEDS TO BRING THE HOUSE. i have been with them since the powertele days. tmobile is doing very little to compete with product selection. T-MOBILE……… A CAT HAS 9 LIVES(so they say) I HONESTLY FEEL AS THOUGH YOU ARE ON YOUR LAST LIFE.

    Cubs will never win…. and i live in Chicago

    As others said this definitely sounds like another mytouch phone, more likely a mytouch 4G slide which makes a lot of sense. Come on T-Mobile bring it on biggg in this CTIA event. We need at least 5 hot phones to be mention to compete with the others ;)

    I had a G1 for the longest time because I was waiting on a good keyboard phone (didn’t like G2). Waited long enough, bought G2x. Will be returning G2x and getting this. Physical keyboard is awesome.
