Verizon spoils Android-based HTC Desire, Moto Droid in photo

updated 02:00 pm EDT, Tue October 6, 2009

HTC Desire and Moto Droid seen in shot

Verizon today inadvertently confirmed two of its planned Android phones in an image attached to its news of the event. The photo shows Google chief Eric Schmidt holding a previously unseen phone that represents the largely mysterious HTC Desire. It moreover reveals that the phone is likely a cosmetic redesign of the touchscreen-only Hero and that it will have the same Sense UI as the version found on other carriers.

Although his phone is less visible, Verizon Wireless head Lowell McAdam is also shown holding a more squarish device that is likely the Motorola Droid, a QWERTY slider design with a 5-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi.

Both phones are expected before the end of 2009 and may see the Droid introduced first, at the end of October, with a launch significantly later.
