So HTC's new HD2 is one of the hottest smartphones in the world, at least in terms of hardware. Unfortunately, the handset packs WinMo 6.5, one of the least-liked OSs out on the market right now. That's why fans have been clamoring for an Android-loaded version of the HD2. We may have a little bit of evidence to add to that rumor thanks to Boy Genius.

They've come across a photo of the main screen of an HTC Sense phone running Android. The mobile is believed to be either the HTC Passion or the Dragon, HTC's upcoming Verizon smartphone. This new mobile should have a 5 MP camera and Android 2.0, as well as possibly a Snapdragon processor. Several rumors place the Dragon as basically being a clone of the HD2 with Android.

There's been no confirmation from HTC about any of this, so the details are all still unknown. BGR thinks that the Passion will hit in mid-December, and that the Dragon could launch around Black Friday. If so, it could end up drawing a lot of sales away from the recently-released Droid. That 800 MHz processor has nothing on the Snapdragon.
