Being in the Android news biz means you have to write about new phones, especially after leaked photos emerge. But what if said leaked photos are of the same boring design. Is that still news? Does anyone care if a picture of HTC's new Vigor phone was released if it looks the exact same as HTC's Sensation, which also looks pretty damn similar to the upcoming Rhyme and Bass phones?
This was the photo that really got my blood boiling:
This? I'm supposed to write about this? This phone looks exactly like the HTC Sensation. Exactly:
The insides are different, I know. The Vigor will come packing with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which is faster than the Sensation's 1.2 GHz processor, and it'll have a 1280x720 resolution, which outclassses the Sensation's 960x540 resolution.
As a jumping off point, I understand the need to include this picture. But damn, if I see another "leak" that looks the same as an old phone, I'm going to throw a cat out of my window*.
Hey HTC, how about hiring a new designer? Just an idea.
*=Just kidding, I would never do that to a cat. I'm not a monster.
