Default The HTC Shooter Looks Like a Very Nice Gingerbread Phone on its way to Sprint

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/16/htc-shooter-appears-for-sprint-with-android-2-3-2-qhd-screen-an/' target='_blank'>http://www.engadget.com/2011/03/16/...-qhd-screen-an/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"The "PG86100" certainly identifies itself as carrying a speedy new Adreno 220 GPU, which is typically paired with twin processing units, and should help push plenty of pixels to the 960 x 540 screen that's presently displaying Android Gingerbread 2.3.2."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1300668812.usr309.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This has the potential to be a great phone!&nbsp; If you're on Sprint and waiting for one that's really high end keep your eyes open for the Shooter!&nbsp; It's already running Gingerbread so that's a good start.&nbsp; Also, HTC does have a good track record of updating their high end phones.&nbsp; Last year I didn't like HTC phones because they had a relatively weak GPU.&nbsp; That's not the case anymore.&nbsp; The Adreno 220 should be right up there with the Tegra 2 and it may be faster.&nbsp; It's als designed to be paired with a dual-core CPU so we can expect that.&nbsp; And what good is a crazy fast GPU with a screen from last year?&nbsp; This has a qHD display!!!&nbsp; I'm so glad to see HTC going with a 16x9 aspect ratio and significantly a higher resolution as Motorola has started with the Atrix.&nbsp; If you're ready to get a new phone on Sprint and renew your contract you may want to hold out a little longer!&nbsp; If this is the phone you've been waiting for, or not, we would love to hear your thoughts!</p>

The Android version stated is 2.3.2 which would make it Gingerbread not Honeycomb...

That kind of logical, as Honeycomb is not intended for phones anyway.

Oops, my bad. I had it correct in my blurb but totally missed the headline. I must have Honeycomb on the brain for some reason! Thanks for the catch!
