According to a new tip received by AndroidGuys, Verizon might launch a high-end Android smartphone in 2011. The Android smartphone with HTC branding is designed to be a world phone, meaning it features a SIM card so it can be used as a CDMA phone or GSM phone.
In terms of specs, the HTC/Verizon phone features a 1.2GHz processor, 4 inch screen, slideout QWERTY keyboard, and could launch with Android 2.2 out-of-the-box. Of course, 2011 is still pretty far off and specs are always subject to change especially when the phone hasn’t even been announced yet. Either way, it would be nice to see Verizon launch an Android device that can be used internationally.
