HTC Bravo and HTC Passion/Dragon news

Every time a new roadmap leaks we know it’s time to play the “name game” by cross referencing already rumored devices with those listed on the manufacturer’s roadmap – a feat that can prove quite confusing. The 2010 HTC product map leaked yesterday, and today some pretty crisp images of the Android-running, Snapdragon-powered HTC Bravo spread through the blogosphere like wild fire. Many have speculated the HTC Bravo is the European GSM version of the already-leaked HTC Dragon/Passion which was expected to hit Verizon sometime this month. According to Boy Genius, the HTC Passion is now slated to hit the Verizon in Jan. 2010, while Europeans will enjoy a GSM version in the form of Bravo in April on T-Mobile Europe.

In addition to the lust-worthy 1GHz Snapdragon processor, the Bravo is speculated to have 720p recording capabilities with a 5 megapixel autoflash camera, DivX support and a oh-so-beautiful 3.7 inch AMOLED (my favorite six letters for any screen) capacitive touchscreen. You can check out scans of the roadmap details including performance and designs on Engadget.

Of course, this T-Mobile speculation is based on the wording on the original 2010 leak made famous by Engadget a couple days ago so whether or not we’ll actually see the carrier getting the Bravo is still a little questionable. What will happen next in the tale that is the HTC roadmap? Only time will tell! Stay tuned to find out!
