We talked about the HTC Bee a few times since last June, but finally proof of its existence has appeared via the Chinese blog 911HTC. They got their hands on a leaked RUU for the unit, and Alltel branding is showing up in the files. The Bee looks very entry-level, much like the Aria, with a 528 MHz Qualcomm CPU, 348 MB of RAM, and a smallish quarter-VGA display.
What may be the most interesting thing is the Alltel branding. Alltel and Verizon merged a while back, but Alltel remains a separate entity, and still operates in a handfull of U.S. states, and even carries an Android device -- the HTC Hero and Motorola Milestone. Could this one be headed there as well, or will it join the pool of Android phones on Verizon? [911HTC via Pocketnow]
