I think it’s safe to say that a month is the official length of time Android phones can stay as alpha dogs. We’re still enjoying all the goodness the newly released Nexus One has. However, Moore’s Law doesn’t wait for anybody. This is even clearer in the Android ecosystem, which every month has a new phone that makes the rest look like calculators. Without further ado, I give you the HTC Scorpion (or Olympian): the phone we’ll be dreaming about for the next six months. The guys over at AndroidSPIN have come across a leaked build file; a little digging reveals the following details:
- 1.5 GHz CPU (Yowza!!)
- Android 2.2 (Froyo)
The Nexus One looks so last month now doesn’t it? None of this is in any way confirmed, and could very well be fake, but since when does that keep Android fanatics from daydreaming about new phones. By the way, kudos to HTC for pumping out awesome Android phones faster than we can digest them. We’ll keep our sights fixed on anything even remotely related to a scorpion and will report on it as fast as our keyboards tolerate.
