Based on recent leaks, a pair of HTC handsets, the Supersonic and Incredible, appear all but ready to ship. The Google Android smartphones have appeared in the wild and they look like final products.

A handful of pictures of the Incredible trickled out early last week from a Twitter user known as DevDroid. As you can see in the image, the handset is black with red accents. Though the color scheme doesn't resemble anything else HTC has done lately, it does have an air of Verizon Wireless about it. According to rumors, the Incredible runs Android 2.1 with Sense UI, has a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and has 256MB of RAM. The screen size is most likely 3.7-inches with an 800x480-pixel resolution.

The Supersonic should be on the fast track to Sprint. Rumored to be the carrier's first WiMAX capable phone, the Supersonic appears to have a massive 4.3-inch screen, Android 2.1 with Sense UI, and a Snapdragon processor. If you watch this video closely, you will see a foldout kickstand on the bottom of the phone. Presumably, this would be used for video playback and photo slideshows.

In a related note, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse will be giving a keynote address at CTIA in a few days. According to an e-mail being sent out, Hesse will explain how Sprint will be "taking the wireless experience to new heights." William Morrow, CEO of Clearwire Corporation also will be speaking at the event. Sounds like WiMAX news to me.
