HTC Scorpion is a Monster, Runs Android 2.2 on a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon Processor

If you're a person who demands the best out of your smartphone, we think we just found your next device: the HTC Scorpion. AndroidSPIN has received a leaked build file that details this device and it's a doozy: the Scorpion runs Android 2.2 on a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon Processor with support for WiMAX. That means it pretty much outspecs every device currently on the market and sets a new standard while at it. Yeah, we can't stop drooling either.

But then again, we're not even absolutely certain that this device is real (we hope so), if this is even close to releasing (we don't think so) and what it'll look like (with the beauty it has on the inside, does it matter?). For all we know, this could be a glorified text file that some kid drew up and sent around town. A pipe dream, if you will. But where would the fun be in that? Here's what we know for sure: HTC can make devices that set the bar in this industry, if anyone can create this ridiculously spec'd device, it's HTC.

So, Nexus One, are you ready to hand over the Android throne yet?
