We have word of a possible upcoming HTC Android phone called the HTC Dragon that could be the fire-breathing monster everyone’s been looking for, complete with a Qualcomm 1GHz processor.
XDA Developers members, including Reignzone, have in their possession an experimental HTC build and the speculations are causing excitement in the Android and HTC community:
"So, what I’ve got here is a little build we’re referring to as the “Pet Dragon”. It’s highly experimental at the moment…and from what I have noticed after reviewing the build.prop files from this “system dump” of the device I spoke of earlier today…HTC Dragon. (dubbed “Zoom 2″) —> the screen resolution is 800×480…which as you can tell is quite an impressive resolution. Judging from the release keys, it’s also a capacitive touch screen device. Now, having said all this…it IS NOT the HTC Leo, HTC Desire, or Passion. Because this device is in fact operating on the “2.0″ firmware along with the HTC Sense user interface applied for style. So, it’s like an “Eclair Hero”. Lol.
Unzip the packaged files, and enjoy.
A couple points of interest: though the firmware version is listed as version 1.5 on the screen image, XDA says they are using version 2.0. Also, the URL for the HTC Dragon listed on the Learn More screen is currently inactive.
Surely exciting details are on the way! We’ll keep you posted as they come in.

So if this device would be the first 1Ghz Android, it means it's almost going to release?
