Remember how the HTC Lexicon / Merge render leaked -- accurately, may we add -- via a firmware updater
? Well, it seems we might have another one here. This time around it's allegedly the HTC Bee, a device previously rumored
to contain a Qualcomm MSM7625 core, Froyo, a 5 megapixel camera, and a 3.2-inch QVGA display -- in other words, a CDMA Wildfire
(or a CDMA Aria
with QVGA in place of HVGA). The ROM from whence the image came has Alltel branding on it, and considering the specs, we wouldn't be surprised if the microscopic Alltel footprint left behind after Verizon's acquisition seriously might be inline to pick this up. The Wildfire hasn't exactly generated buzz like wildfire across the pond... but then again, in a sea of WVGA beasts, it's hard for a little guy like this to catch a break, isn't it?
