2009 HTC phone lineup

HTC's upcoming phone list for 2009 has been leaked online, reports claim. Some 25 different devices are present on the list; prominent ones begin with the Topaz, a touchscreen-based phone branded for AT&T; it additionally appears to have basic music or calling buttons, as well as front- and rear-mounted cameras. The Willow W, meanwhile, is focused around a QWERTY keyboard, and may be slated to become known as the Excalibur or a 3G sequel to the T-Mobile Dash. Initial images, however, show a Sprint logo.

The Thoth, or Athena 2, is believed to be related to the Advantage, which is similar in concept to a netbook but retains a focus on cellular functions. The Rhodium may in fact be the Touch Pro HD, with a corresponding slide-out QWERTY keyboard, while the Whitestone W is similar in concept to the Topaz but with the addition of a kickstand for video watching.

Release dates and other key details of the phones remain unknown.

    Does that little prop leg on the Whitestone model remind anyone else of the "man step" in the latest Chevy Silverado commercials?

    Good Stuff.
