Verizon appears to getting some HTC Android phones, but there are no real details outside of some codenames. The HTC Desire has been spotted in Verizon’s inventory system and is expected to launch in Q4 2009. We saw the phone get FCC approval this week, but little else is known about the device. For all we know, it could be a Verizon branded Hero or Magic.
Digitimes is claiming that HTC will follow up the Desire with the Passion. The HTC Passion is also expected to launch in Q4, but could come after the holidays. Reports say the Passion will be a next-generation Google phone so we assume it will ship with Android 2.0. HTC is working on a Windows-powered 1 GHz Snapdragon phone called the Leo, so maybe they will deliver the first 1 GHz Android phone in the U.S.
