Here's some juicy gossip for the exceptionally nerdy. It's just come out through Digitimes that HTC plans to develop a “high-profile” 3G smartphone based around the Qualcomm Brew Mobile Platform (BMP) in either September or October. According to the rumor;

“The BMP-based handset will come with a touchsreeen, HTC's in-house developed TouchFlo 3D technology and HTC Sense interface as found in the HTC touch-enabled smartphone lineup, and yet the device will be available as an entry-level model, the sources noted.”

HTC's new smartphone sounds pretty great and if our next rumor is true there's a good chance it'll end up packing the Android OS. It seems that HTC has enjoyed their little taste of Android, and now they're ready to take a big bite. Currently Android smartphones make up 30% of the HTC line. They want to increase that to 50% by 2010.

“The deployment of BMP-based models and the enforcement of Android-powered handsets will help further enhance HTC's competitiveness.”

You'll never hear me complain about getting more Android smartphones on the market. It's apparent now that HTC has pretty much hitched its star to Google's OS, which should end up being a good thing for both of them.
