HTC Glacier benchmark scores

File this under rumors for the moment, but it looks like the fabled Project Emerald from T-Mobile could very well be the HTC Glacier, and on paper it's fast as hell. The folks at AlienBabelTech have done some digging and found some rather interesting dirt:

  • On the GLBenchmark 1.1 online database, there are entries for a very fast (as in 3 times faster than the current HTC king, the Evo 4G!) mystery device named the HTC Glacier.  That's the picture above.
  • HTC is known for using Qualcomm Snapdragon chips in their phones.  Once you crunch the numbers on the benchmarks, you come up with a dual-core 1.2 to 1.5 GHz device
  • The fellow who uploaded these scores also uploaded a bunch of other HTC device scores, and they have all been T-Mobile devices.
  • That fellow's LinkdIn profile shows that he is a Senior Interaction Designer at T-Mobile USA

Is this proof positive that it's Project Emerald?  Nope.  But it stands to reason, unless T-Mobile has two huge surprises to spring on us later this year.  Be sure to check out the source link, there's a screenshot montage of all the clues, as well as a long geeky feature list of the supposed HTC Glacier's GPU details.  [AlienBabelTech]
