A few days ago, we found a couple of blurrycam pictures of the HTC Vision. Yesterday, a blurrycam shot of T-Mobile’s roadmap leaked, and it shows an HTC Vanguard releasing on September 9. Now, Engadget has word that the HTC Vision is launching in September – the same time the HTC Vanguard is shown launching on T-Mob’s roadmap. The Vision will be T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ phone. (As I’ve mentioned before, HSPA+ is pretty awesomely fast, and expanding like the wind.) The specs are rumored to include a 3.7” screen, slide-out 4 row QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.1 with sense, and a 1 Ghz processor.

This morning, AT&T announced that the Samsung Captivate (aka Galaxy S i9000) would go on sale July 18th at a new contract or upgrade price of $199. The Galaxy S will be a watershed in AT&T’s release history: Captivate will be the first high-end Android device to reach an AT&T store and sit side by side with (or perhaps in an unlit corner far away from) the iPhone 4.
There does not appear to be a pre-order option, so you anxious AT&T users will likely have to get to your local AT&T store July 18th to pick up your device if you want it on release day.

In a blog radio interview with a Motorola developer, when asked about how the Droid X’s HDMI-out could be used, the following answer was given by the Moto dev:
"The only time that we are enabling the HDMI driver on the device is when you are in the gallery mode. [...] The HDMI driver is not active any time outside the gallery"
As Android users are aware, gallery is the native photo and recorded video viewing application on Android devices.
