HTC Hero, HTC Lancaster rumored to be announced at HTC’s London event

This latest report makes a little sense, yet at the same time is still firmly in the rumor category. Lets begin with the part that makes sense, if you remember back to that invitation for the upcoming HTC event in London, it had a big rose. That rose would fit in with the “Rosie” user interface that the HTC Hero is noted as having. Given that it would make sense that the event will be to announce the launching of the HTC Hero.

So far, so good, but this is where it gets a little stranger. Remember this is all coming courtesy of a report in the Economic Daily News, and they are claiming that in addition to the HTC Hero, that we will also see the launch of the HTC Lancaster.

Of course, as we learned not that long ago, AT&T was supposed to have exclusivity on the Lancaster and I feel safe in saying that I could not imagine a device that is headed for AT&T having an announcement in London.

But in the end, all of this could be entirely untrue because the Economic Daily News is not even citing any sources. My guess, we will see an announcement for the HTC Hero.
