According to a leaked roadmap of upcoming phones for later this year from Walmart, the below is called Morrison or aka Bigfoot. Many believe this isn’t going to be a new HTC Android phone instead, a revised version of the G1 or second gen G1 if you like. As you can see it sports a full slide-out HTC-style QWERTY keyboard, great for those who are keen on texts. BGR reports that the Bigfoot is likely to drop in October later this year for $148 with a 2-year agreement at Walmart. As for us in the UK, we’re not too sure whether it will actually make its way here.

Not very long after the Magic arrives, it looks like HTC and Google have been busy. Here’s a snapshot that’s been leaked featuring the HTC “Hero”.

The picture doesn’t look as if its been photoshopped and the HTC Hero looks to be an Android phone with a wider screen, same old “chin” but without a trackball which is abit unlike other Android phones currently available.

This is an extremely geeky app. The Metal Detector app available only for Android is exactly what it says on the tin. By making use of the HTC T-Mobile G1′s built-in magnetometer which the G1 uses as a compass, G1 users will be able to customise and configure the app in terms of sound effects, vibrations, sensitivities to their liking.

Check out this demo video put together by the HDBlog:

It seems like the sensitivity won’t be great for users who plan on detecting smaller metal objects, but if its just a case of missing keys,

SlashGear appears to have received a demo unit of the new HTC Touch Diamond flagship – the Diamond2, which was announced back in the MWC this year. Just unboxing, it wasn’t very impressive at all, the box didn’t even say HTC and the accessories that were included were just standard. But the handset itself appears nice, larger screen compared to the first gen HTC Touch Diamond and its also gained a higher resolution camera five megapixel, still no flash though.

Check out the video below:

The latest Google Android phone, the Vodafone HTC Magic doesn’t sport a sliding keyboard, some have felt disappointed about this because on screen keyboards are still no where as fast as proper keyboards when it comes to users who text alot. But from what we can see in this demo video, it doesn’t look like that much of a worry afterall, future improvements will definitely come but it seems at this point it is a neat, reactive keyboard with a bunch of well thought out cool functions (including landscape mode typing!).
