Want To See What The Next Android Phone From HTC May Look Like?

Tech blog Gizmodo scored a huge scoop today by publishing a story that shows purported images of the next Android phone from G1 maker HTC. The G2, as it is being called, is thinner, and loses the QWERTY keyboard.
Tech blog Gizmodo scored a huge scoop today by publishing a story that shows purported images of the next Android phone from G1 maker HTC. The G2, as it is being called, is thinner, and loses the QWERTY keyboard.The lack of new Android phones being announced has the blogosphere all in a lather about who's going to get one to market first. With barely a rumor to sate our thirst for Android exclusives, CES was a bitter disappointment. No new phones were announced during the biggest gadget trade show in North America.

Now, however, we have some juicy spy shots to look at. The images show a phone -- the G2? -- that looks very similar to the HTC G1, but has major differences.

First and foremost, the slide-out QWERTY keyboard is gone. As a result, the phone is much thinner than the G1, which is definitely a good thing. It keeps the track ball below the touch display, but re-arranges the buttons a bit.

The back is smooth, and shows a 3.2 megapixel camera. The one image that shows a screen shot reveals a home screen that is nearly identical to that of the G1.

The pictures look like they could be legit, but you never know. Rumor or not, you can see the pictures here.

Gizmodo suggest a May arrival for this device.
