Looks like Verizon is ramping up for some major Android releases. Along with the Droid (which we're expecting very soon), this in-the-wild photo is of the HTC Desire which clearly houses Verizon branding and runs the HTC Sense UI. We have absolutely no details to share with you but we've seen this device before in the hands of Google CEO Eric Schmidt. You can see that the button layout and trackball in Schmitty's hand match the phone in the photo above.
What could this phone be? Perhaps another take on the HTC Hero? A completely new HTC Android device? We can't wait to find out.
thanks troy otts for the tip!
