Button-less HTC Android smartphone out in the wild too

It’s leaking today…Hot on the heals of the mysterious HTC device spotted in the metro he comes the recently rumored at Pocketnow button-less HTC Android device posing in the wild too. The back of the device looks identical to the ugly HTC Incredible and the front shows that there’s no hardware buttons, unless there are capacitive and only light up when the phone is on (that would be stupid…). I really wonder how that thing will work given that Android relies heavily on the phones hardware buttons to access all the applications and device menus.The phone is also Verizon branded like the Incredible.

Here are the first live pictures of HTC’s upcoming flagship Android phone ( HTC Saga or HTC Desire 2) that will probably be officially unveiled next month during MWC in Barcelona.

Samsung Galaxy S 2 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to be announced on February 13th

Nothing really surprising here but according tot the event planning document posted above Samsung is set to launch not only Samsung Galaxy S 2 but also the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2  (Samsung Galaxy S II, Samsung Galaxy Tab II) on February 13th in Barcelona just ahead of MWC. Still haven’t received my Samsung invite for this event yet but will obviously have tons of videos and pictures of both devices once I get my hands-on there ( Sony Ericsson’s invitation indicates that their event will take place around the same time on the 13th so it’s going to be a bit tricky to cover both events given that I’m alone..).
