Sweet mother of mercy, I behold the pale rider of the apocalypse. His name is Scorpion, and he is a next generation smartphone from HTC. AndroidSpin reports that the Scorpion, also known as the Olympian, will be the phone to capture the Nexus One's place at the top of the Android hierarchy. It is rumored to pack the Android 2.2 OS and a 1.5 GHz processor.

To be honest, that's a little scary. My Nexus One has a 1 GHz processor and I rarely notice even the slightest bouts of lag. Adding another 50% onto that processor's power will just be ridiculous. The leaked build file also mentions WiMax. Can you imagine a 1.5 GHz 4G Android smartphone? That is BASICALLY a netbook that fits in the palm of your hand.

Sorry Nexus One...when this thing launches, you and I might be through.
