New HTC smartphone rumoured to be “eXcellent”

We have no pictures and no specifications, just a few throw-away comments, but this rumour is too tasty not to pass on.

First we have HTC’s twitter spokesman promising that “we do have other cool stuff coming

Next we have this comment, made in a Mobile-Review review of the 8 megapixel Samsung Pixon.

All in all, I will be really interest to see how the next phone in this line-up (say, Samsung M9900) will fare against HTC’s top-of-the-line Windows Mobile offering (let’s call it XD – eXcellent Device). Before we move on to the final part of this review, let me spill some beans about what that XD phone will look like – in fact, the Touch HD they announced the other day is nothing but a pale shadow of what the XD will be, you could even call it a mere prototype of the upcoming HTC XD. What can I say, the year of 2009 will see a lot of sudden turns and twists.”

Lest we think Mobile-Review could not possibly know what HTC has in the pipeline, remember they were one of the first site to have a proper review of the HTC Touch Diamond in May 2008, months before the rest of the world laid hands on the device.

I do wonder what device could make the HTC Touch HD look like a pale imitation – would any of our readers want to speculate?
