Forums for the HTC Vision (G2) Added
Because of its imminent release/unveiling in mid September, xda-developers has done what it does best… try to stay ahead of the curve. We have added a new section to our ever growing list of sub-forums for discussion and development of the upcoming HTC Vision (aka G2, aka Blaze, aka T-Mobile Project Emerald, etc). HTC has been doing a pretty good job in keeping the details down to a minimum, as there are only speculations about the true specs for the device at this moment. The ones that have been confirmed to be real are the following:
- HSPA+ (max speeds of 21 Mbps compared to Sprint’s 4G with a max of 15 Mbps)
- 3.7 inch WVGA
- Slide Out Qwerty
There are many speculations that the device will feature a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and Android 2.1. However, there have been many rumors out there saying that the Vanguard could be the wielder of the fabled dual core processor due to several leaked benchmark results that have surfaced online during the past month, which far surpass the EVO and the Epic in several categories.
Have something interesting to share? Know something that we don’t? Then, come over to the G2’s new home forum and add your two cents.

Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
