The Google Phone story just got a lot hotter. Some images made an appearance on Twitter of the “Google Phone”.
After I saw this picture, I noticed a striking resemblance to this leak….
If you guessed HTC Passion, you’re correct! The only difference seen in these two photos is the HTC branding. The one that showed it’s face on Twitter lacks the HTC branding, while the HTC Passion picture does. Engadget also found some images of the Google Phone taken by Google employees. Is this whole thing a fake? Maybe the Google Phone is just an unlocked, unbranded HTC Passion? What is your take on this?
UPDATE: Also: the soft button configuration is different. Thanks to eagle-eyed commenter Jeremiah Bostick!
