HTC will be launching the same phone under two names—Bravo in the US, and Passion in Europe, according to new leaks. Only trouble is, it doesn't look much like the Passion we know and love, does it?
Our dreams of an HTC-shaped Android 2.0 device launching before Christmas now lie in tatters, with Digitimes reporting that the oft-leaked, much-hyped Passion has been delayed by several months to an early 2010 on-sale date.
Nestled in the leaked Android 2.1 ROM, 20 new devices are mentioned by name—including those we knew of already (Dragon, Dream, Hero and Passion) but some new friends too, Bahamas, Bravo, DesireC, Espresso, Halo, HeroCT, HeroC, Huangshan, Incredible, Legend, Liberty, Memphis, Paradise, PassionC, Sapphire and…

Stop the App Store, I want to get off. The Passion app is designed to sit on your bed while you lay pipe, letting you know just how skilled you are at pleasing your partner.
