Android-powered HTC Knight To Be Renamed As Speedy

One more generic Android handset from HTC, codenamed either Knight or Speedy, arrive in the US just on time for CES in Las Vegas next year.

BGR reports about a Sprint accessory list that shows the HTC Knight landing at the mobile phone operator on the 6th of January (CES starts on the 6th) with the phone likely to be launched as the HTC Speedy.

There's not much details about the phone algother; XDA developers posted a picture of what they claim is the phone complete with a logo of Sprint.

The device will apparently come with a 3.7-inch WVGA capacitive display, not unlike the HTC Dessire. It will have four rounded navigation keys and will have some kind of hinge, not necessarily a QWERTY keyboard.

After all, HTC has just released the audiophile-friendly Surround handset with a slide out speaker as well. If HTC sticks to its trend of repackaging phones, this one will come with a 1Ghz Qualcomm processor, 512MB RAM, Wi-Fi, an 8-megapixel camera, a microSD card, three sensors, HTCSense UI and Android OS 2.2.
