TechCrunch Spies A Wrapped Froyo Sculpture At The Googleplex. Forget That - Here Is The Unwrapped Sculpture Caught On Camera In Its Full Glory

So today TechCrunch apparently tried to send their reporter to the Googleplex and unwrap the wrapped sculpture that was sitting next to all the other Android related creations, all in the shape of existing Android version codenames - Cupcake, Donut, and Eclair.

When the reporter tried to unwrap the sculpture to peak inside, some Googlers threatened to call security (deservedly so, may I add).

What TechCrunch didn't know, however, is that the sculpture was already leaked to Youtube a whole week ago.

htc-pc70110-wildfire-150

Well it is about time for another Android phone leak, it has been almost a week or so since the last one.

This time we have a new HTC phone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, the standard navigation buttons and also an optical trackpad. Everything looks pretty standard about this phone aesthetically speaking. As for the hardware hidden inside, not a lot is known about it yet.

Model name PC70110, HTC’s new phone has a 4 row QWERTY keyboard which, if you are coming from something like the G1 which has a sexy 5 row keyboard, is a bit of a bummer.

Espresso UI

If you haven't heard yet, HTC has been developing a new flavor of its own flavor of another flavor of Android called Espresso.

Espresso is an interface built on top of HTC's flagship Sense UI and is expected to make its first appearance in the wild on the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch Slide. We covered the phone and the UI when both of them leaked online.

Espresso Build Leaked Online

Yesterday, GamerCore from AndroidAndMe.com got his hands on an Espresso build leaked by Binary100100 from xda-forums and loaded it onto his G1 after zachattack052 and Domenuk ported it to the myTouch/G1.

Dell Streak

Looks like this is the last set of Android related Dell leaks that Engadget miraculously dug up yesterday.

Dell Aero

The first leak shines some light on the Dell Aero - Dell's upcoming budget Android phone. Previously, the only information we had about this phone was the 3.5" screen, a 5MP camera, and a June release date.

Because of the budget tag, we were now not surprised to find out that the phone would be running a 624MHz Marvell CPU, which is the same CPU the sometimes laggy Spring Design Alex eReader has inside.

Only a few hours since we broke the news about a leaked Samsung Moment Android 2.1, another member of the same forum by the name of joeykrim that posted the original ROM announced that they have successfully rooted it.

Yes, that's right, Samsung Moment with Android 2.1 is now rooted.

So head over, no jet over, to the good old SDX-Developers forum and look at this post for detailed instructions which I will duplicate here.
