The leaked HTC roadmap for 2010 revealed a number of Windows Mobile and Android powered handsets. It was here in this leaked report, where Android based flagship phone, the HTC Bravo made its first appearance along with its image and launch date as April 2010. With almost identical features and specifications, HTC Bravo is the European variant of HTC Passion which as some rumors suggest, is on track for a January 2010 launch in the States where as HTC Bravo will be launching three months later in April 2010 in Europe through T-Mobile.
