Verizon Launching Two Android Handsets With Google Voice; Eric Schmidt Holding an HTC Hero? Sholes Spotted Too?

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

This morning, Google and Verizon held a joint press conference in order to tell us that Verizon will be launching two "game-changing" Android handsets that will have Google Voice pre-installed. Now this picture above is sparking the rumours. The handset Eric Schmidt is holding on the left side appears to be a Verizon-branded HTC Hero - according to Engadget. The handset on the right, being held by the other guy appears to be the Motorola Droid / Tao / Sholes - but it's not confirmed at the time. Clearly, we can't see the front of the handset on the right, but they could both be the same handset.

Maybe one of these handsets will actually be the Android-based HTC Desire that we've been hearing about for a while now.

Update: According to Boy Genius, the HTC Hero on the right could get launched as early as next month (November).

Update: Phandroid got a better photo of the handsets, so I swapped the picture above for something, clearly, better. Below is a close-up of both phones. It looks like a modified HTC Hero and the Motorola Droid / Tao / Sholes to me.
