HTC Passion coming to VZW this Christmas?

We have heard rumors that HTC was planning their first Android 2.0 phone this holiday season. The HTC Passion/Dragon is supposedly sporting a 1 GHz Snapdragon platform and running Eclair. A tipster just gave us the heads up that htcpassion.com is now live. The website features the Verizon logo next to the word “passion” with the text “coming holidays 2009″.

I’m not entirely sure this is official, but it is definitely interesting.

A whois of the domain reveals:

  • Contact: 8939 S. Sepulveda Blvd. #110 – 732
    Westchester, CA 90045
  • Name servers: ns1.made2own.com
    ns2.made2own.com
  • Creation date: 16 Sep 2009 22:25:01

What do you guys think? I’ve been waiting for a new HTC Android 2.0 phone to arrive. I might just have to open a 2nd line with Verizon.

Update (11/29): Official response from Verizon Wireless – “We don’t discuss phones that we don’t currently sale.”
