We know all you T-Mobile fans are waiting with bated breath over what's going to be the carrier's first HSPA+ phone for its updated network. One train of thought is that it'll be the as-yet-unannounced HTC Vision/Blaze. Let's throw something new into the mix. Above is what our tipster says is the myTouch 3G HD, and indeed it does seem to match the shape of that mystery T-Mobile HSPA+ phone silhouetted at TMo's website [via PhoneScoop].
But, wait, there's more. Source code for the HSPA+ site [via BGR] originally made use of the "Vanguard" code name, which we've seen before and was widely believed to have been the HTC Vision/Blaze. That Vanguard reference is now missing, which could mean that it was a true leak, or it could mean that it was just wrong. Or maybe it means what we see above is the Vanguard. Who knows?
But let's return our attention to that tall-drink of black-slab water you see above, which at least "feels" like more than a fan-rendered mockup (though that's still a possibility). That's definitely a sizable touchscreen, and the Genius button introduced on the myTouch 3G Slide is back, alongside physical home, menu and back buttons (matching what's on the myTouch 3G Slide, along with the trackpad). We're thinking that button on the side is slaved to the camera. And speaking of cameras, is that a front-facing job up there next to the earpiece?
Anyhoo, for now we'll have to wait and see what comes out of it all. Anybody licking their chops over this one? Thanks, C!
