Want to get your hands on unreleased Android phones? Check Craigslist

The HTC Paradise and Fiesta aren't on the tip of anyone's tongues, because they haven't been released or even rumored to be released yet.  That didn't stop someone from placing them both on Craigslist as "AT&T sample" phones, and thankfully someone with a camera and internet access scooped them right up.  The Paradise (pictured above) sounds much like the PC70110, an HTC slider that passed through the FCC back in April.  The Fiesta has little to no resemblance to anything we've heard of, and it's not even listed in the codename leaks we saw from a ROM back in December.  Based on looks and form factor alone, it appears to be an early version of the Aria, but thats pure speculation on my part.

After all is said and done, it's a great score for the fellow that got them, and AT&T could certainly use a qwerty Android phone besides the Backflip.  Just lose the blue, please.  You can check out a pic of the Fiesta after the jump. [CellPassion via Engadget]

  • Landscape Sense UI is disgusting. HTC especially did a bad job on the landscape clock, Fancy Widget's landscape clock even beats HTC's.
  • +1 on that. i think that of all the OEM skins that are installed, only touchwiz is good in landscape. and thats only because of the dock with the four icons.
  • Is it just me or does that color of blue just scream low end even if u couldn't see the small screen lol, but hey I could be wrong and yea the other one probably became the aria.....hardware buttons are somewhat last year (exception of dx) compactive work just as well and make a phone look more sleek imo
  • im getting the same feeling. I dont know about it being low end, but it doesnt seem like anywhere close of being a flagship.
  • It's a prototype. Can't imagine they'd release it blue. They've got their heads screwed on straight.
  • Have they been rooted yet?
  • Doesn't look like they really put much originality into making a landscape version of sense, but it's kinda neat to see after having my Hero for so long.
  • I'd love to see Sense go into landscape on my Incredible. Sure, it looks better in portrait, but in my car or as a desk clock, landscape is the way to go. ;)
  • so these are dummy phones?>
  • heh, whoever posted these on craigslist is obviously a complete moron. this is confidential stuff but of course we love to see it. looks like i will be checking craigslist A LOT more LOL.
