Tons of new Android handset codenames unveiled in HTC's Android 2.1 ROM

Remember that leaked Android 2.1 ROM for the GSM HTC Hero from a few days ago? Looks like there was more to it than meets the eye. Tucked deep inside the ROM was a list of around 20 Android-based handset codenames, nearly all of which have never been seen.

The goods, as uncovered by maxisma over at AndroidSpin:

  • Bahamas
  • Bravo
  • DesireC
  • Dragon
  • Dream
  • Espresso
  • Halo
  • HeroCT
  • HeroC
  • Hero
  • Huangshan
  • Incredible
  • Legend
  • Liberty
  • Memphis
  • Paradise
  • PassionC
  • Passion
  • Sapphire
  • Supersonic

Some of these are handsets we’ve already seen hit the shelves (Dream = G1, Sapphire= Magic, Hero, etc) while others are codenames that were previously rumored (Passion, Dragon). Most, however, are brand new to the rumor mill. Might HTC really be working on 15+ new Android handsets? We can only dream.
