It was believed that the still unofficial HTC Passion would arrive by the end of 2009. Now Digitimes reports that their industry sources say HTC has pushed the Passion back to an early 2010 release.
The HTC Passion will be HTC's first Android 2.0smartphone and has the internet buzzing with rumors.
The HTC Passion will be based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz CPU and get an eye catching 3.5-inch multi-touchOLEDdisplay.
The reasons for the delay of the Passion are supposed to be software related.
As it looks the Motorola Droid will remain the only Android 2.0 smartphone on the market in 2009.
In the same report Digitimes also mentions a rumor about a new Android smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard that HTC will unveil at the MWC 2010. The new HTC Android phone would be called HTC Espresso.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
