Rumors are always just rumors, but a current one flying around the Internet has an unnamed HTC sales manager outing a 4.3-inch successor to the HTC Sensation, with NFC capabilities, to hit in the third quarter of 2011. Yes, a new phone will be better than an old phone -- shocker -- even though this particular old phone hasn't even hit the shelves yet.
So far the only Android phone to have NFC on-board is the Nexus S, and that's because Google wanted it available for developers. NFC technology is something Nokia's been doing forever, yet still hasn't caught on for most of the world. Maybe a bigger push from Google will have the same result that putting a front facing camera on the HTC Evo 4G did, and bring it mainstream. Or maybe not -- consumers, especially us American ones, are pretty fickle.
Finally, there's been a bit of speculation that this will be the next Nexus phone. While that's possible, and the time frame fits, I think it's way to early for anyone to be jumping to those conclusions. But if it is, and has a similar curvaceous unibody design, tell me who to throw my money at now please.
