Something fishy is going on at HTC that leds some of us to believe that bad information is being leaked on purpose.  Perhaps HTC is getting tired of all their phones being leaked well in advance of their official announcements.  Two cases have recently popped up showing inaccurate information that has been reported widely by most technology and mobile blogs, including us. We reported on the HTC Supersonic last week being rumored to possess 4G capabilities.  This screen, allegedly of the HTC Supersonic was sent to BGR from a “new tipster”, but there are some odd features.  T-Mobile is the…

Engadget has gotten an exclusive tip from a “trusted” source revealing the codename and details of what could possibly be the first 4G Android device to hit the market.  Codenamed “Supersonic”, the device is made by HTC and will launch on Sprint with WiMAX capability.  Here are the official bullet points taken from Engadget: Codename is “Supersonic” — a name we’ve heard at least once before.

Possibly but not necessarily related, a leaked 2010 inventory list from Sprint revealed the existence of a WiMAX candybar from HTC. Details on the 4G-capable HTC A9292 are sparse but the inclusion of  “A”  in the name of the handset suggests that…

A few days back at the 4G World Conference in Chicago, PCWorld’s Mark Sullivan had a chance to liaise with wireless carriers, handset makers and analysts. It is his opinion that Sprint will push a 4G Samsung device sporting Android next year. In fact, Sprint candidly validates its campaign to sell a 4G smartphone next year, but isn’t saying two bits on who will be the manufacturer. So what does this mean to the average consumer? 4G with Sprint means that this device will be running on a WiMax network provided by Clearwire. This means that those luckily enough to…
