HP Bender Smartphone with Android ICS, 1366x720 Display, Snapdragon S4

When the original Palm Pre was announced several years ago, it sure looked like it was going to be a game-changer. That webOS looked beautiful. Then, things didn’t quite go as planned, HP tried to keep pushing it with more webOS phones and with the TouchPad tablet, and things just got worse and worse. It just didn’t work out.

Well, HP isn’t about to give up on the mobile space. In fact, it looks like they already have a new smartphone that’s almost ready to roll, except it’s not powered by webOS. It’s powered by Android. Going by the codename “Bender,” this new smartphone showed up in benchmark data from GLBenchmark.

According to that data, this new smartphone is powered by Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual core processor. While the screen size isn’t revealed, it is showing a crazy resolution of 1366 x 720 pixels. This all sounds pretty good, except we are missing some pretty important details. We don’t know the screen size, we don’t know the release date, we don’t know the price and — perhaps most importantly — we really have no idea what this phone looks like.

At the very least, though, we now know that HP is ready to give the mobile arena another push, though it makes you wonder if they’ll sell Windows Phone 8 devices to go along with their upcoming family of Windows 8 products too.
