HTC could reveal a successor to its popular HTC Desire handset at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. A German blog claims to have obtained a snap of Vodafone Germany’s internal inventory system which appears to list the device under the name “Desire 2 HTC”.
That’s about it for details on the device, but it’s interesting to speculate on what shape the Desire 2 will take (if the report is genuine). Unlike the original device, which closely resembled the Google-approved but HTC-built Nexus One, there’s no self-built official handset to replicate this time. The Nexus One’s recently released follow-up, the Nexus S, is made by Samsung.
Of course, HTC has already proved willing to experiment with the Desire brand, having produced the hugely impressive (and just plain huge) Desire HD as well as the physical Qwerty keyboard-sporting Desire Z. Indeed, the Desire 2 could simply be a European rebranding of one of the devices showcased at the CES event in January.
Whatever happens, HTC will be out to impress with its next-generation Desire 2 – whatever form it takes. So it looks like next week will be really great, with many big launches at the Mobile World Congress, and we are looking forward to showcasing WorkMobile™ at the very hub of the excitement!
