HTC Vision Android 2.1 smartphone spotted

First QWERTY keyboard-packing HTC phone since the G1

Like the HTC Desire but dislike using an onscreen keyboard? The solution might be the HTC Vision, which has turned up in these spy shots despite not having been officially announced.

From the pictures and the limited specs we know, it seems as though the Vision will be a near identical handset to the Desire, only with the addition of that physical, slide-out keyboard. The only real difference is that the four standard Android buttons seem to have been replaced with touch-sensitive ones, and the optical trackpad made square like that found on the new BlackBerrys.

Other than that it’s business as usual: a 3.7-inch OLED screen, 1 GHz Qualcomm processor running Android 2.1

There’s no word on when the Vision will land as it’s yet to be officially pushed through HTC’s front gates, but we’ll keep the larger-thumbed among you posted with more news as we get it.
