It’s difficult to keep track of all the leaked device names out there, we know, but if you can cast your mind back a month or so you may remember the mysterious HTC Lexikon and HTC Bee phones whose details were sourced from the 911sniper blog. Well, the same guys over in China have just posted what is believed to be a copy of the Lexikon’s operating system, complete with “VERIZON” in the filename, and a render of the phone to keep you hooked.

From the image alone, the Lexikon looks to be similar in styling to the still extant Droid Incredible. However, from what we’ve seen before, there is a QWERTY slider beneath that screen:

A QWERTY slider? Sound familiar? It even has the same chin and the same red search button. But that device, pictured below, was rumoured to have very different specs – 1.2 GHz and a 4.0” screen, as opposed to the 800 Mhz MSM7630 and 3.8” screen of the Lexikon.

So what has happened? Has the rumour-mill gotten some wires crossed? Are the Lexikon and the dual-mode CDMA/GSM phone pictured above different phones or one and the same? If you’ve got the technical know-how, you may be able to make sense of it all by disassembling the ROM file 911sniper have posted. Let us know your findings!
