HTC Vision Spotted Again – T-Mobile Branding, HSPA+, Could Be Called The G1 Blaze

Details are scarce on this one, but a new shot of the HTC Vision has been leaked. With the shot came a few new details: it’s likely headed for T-Mobile (either in the US, overseas, or both), and will be named the G1 Blaze.

As we’ve stated before, the device packs what has quickly become standard fare for high-end phones:

  • 1 GHz CPU
  • 3.7” Screen
  • Eclair (Android 2.1) + Sense
  • HSPA+ (rumored)
  • Launching in September
  • Slide-out four row QWERTY keyboard

If it’s true that this phone is going to be packing HSPA+, it could be a big winner – so far, T-Mobile has no phones that support it, and it’s pretty speedy.

T-Mobile has been forced to lower the price of the Garminfone as a result of very weak demand - analyst estimates peg the number sold around 20,000. The phone was priced at $199.99, a price most reviewers agreed was too high for a phone with relatively weak specs:

  • 3.5” screen
  • 3 MP camera
  • 2GB microSD card
  • Android 1.6 with no word on an upgrade
  • Focus on navigation capabilities

Those in the market for an Android device were able to either get a more powerful phone for the same price, or an equally capable one for substantially less.
