This handset could be hitting Verizon in the Summer and other specs could include a better (8MP) camera with 720p (hopefully upped to 1080p since it does have the Tegra 2 chipset) HD video recording, possibly just Android 2.2 (hopefully "Gingerbread"), a microSD card slot, an HDMI port, and possibly even LTE (4G) connectivity. Maybe it'll be announced at MWC, we'll just have to wait and see.
