HTC Scorpion: Is it a Tablet or a Smartbook?


This is all just speculation right now, but some information about an upcoming HTC product has popped up last night over at AndroiSpin. They supposedly got their hands on a build file from an “in-development” HTC product code-named HTC Scorpion (or HTC Olympian):

  • # begin build properties

  • # Time between scans in seconds. Keep it high to minimize battery drain.

  • # but none are in range.

  • What’s interesting here is that the Chipset is rated at 1.5Ghz which hints at a Qualcomm QSD8672 Dual-core CPU. This rules out the possibility that the HTC Scoprion is a smartphone (the QSD8672 is aimed at smartbooks/tablets). The other juicy bit is that this mysterious device is also running Android 2.2
    Keep in mind that this is all speculation and that it may all be fake.

      It may be called the HTC Scorpion (possibly codenamed “Olympian”), and it’s allegedly packing a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor.
      HTC’s all-new phone may be running Android 2.2 as well as be equipped with WiMax support, on top of a bone-crushing 1.5Ghz Snapdragon processor.
