We have an exciting new category of hardware leak – people buying prototype handsets through online car boot sale site Craigslist.
According to Cell Passion, one of their readers managed to BUY test versions of two unannounced HTC Android phones through the trading site, phones which identify themselves as the QWERTY-enabled HTC Paradise and the standard touchscreen candybar HTC Fiesta.
The Paradise looks nice. The rather bezel-heavy Fiesta not so much. It’s entirely possible these phone will never see the light of day, though – they could simply be HTC test machines.
Although the Paradise has been seen before – it went through US testing procedures earlier this year.
