Rendered HTC Pyramid Runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb

Rendered HTC Pyramid Runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb


You might know this phone as the HTC Desire HD2, but here are some of the first renderings we’ve seen of the upcoming HTC Pyramid. I’m not really a fan of super-sized displays, but there are more than a few people who might like the 4.3-inch qHD (540×960) touchscreen on this sucker.

Perhaps the more notable tidbit of information being connected to this device, though, is that it may run on Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Sure, it’s got a pretty big screen, but I think you’d still call it a smartphone. So, why would HTC plunk a tablet-centric OS on there? It’s possible that the blurb is mistaken, but that’s what it says.

Running through the rest of the supposed spec sheet, we find a 1.2GHz processor, 768MB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and the standard set of four capacitive touch buttons below the display.

From a design standpoint, the HTC Pyramid isn’t exactly pyramidal in shape, nor does it really stand out in the sea of Android alternatives. Maybe that’s what you want, but I really liked the personality of the HTC Incredible so much more.
