First “Beats By Dre” Phone To Be The HTC Vigor?

Chock this one up as a rumor for now folks, at least until we get further confirmation.  However, according to a source over at Droid-Life, the HTC Vigor could be the initial launch device sporting Beats by Dre’s audio mechanics.  Droid Life states in their coverage of the rumor:
And if you were wondering, this will be a Beats by Dre device.  We’re hearing that it has a Beats logo as part of the bootup sequence, but other than that, it was tough to tell what else HTC had done to integrate their audio technology.

Furthermore, it’s stated that the device will strongly resemble the  look and feel of the HTC Thunderbolt, sporting a 4.3-inch capacitive touch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU, 1 Gig of RAM and Android 2.3.4 on board.  It’s also speculated the device will come with 16 GB’s of storage and an 8 mp camera.  There will also be a 2 mp front facing camera for your video chatting pleasure.  And to top it all off, it’ll have the latest version of Sense UI (3.5)  Here’s to hoping DL’s source is accurate, because if it is, we have high hopes for a device like this.  Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
