Verizon XV6175 snapping at T-Mobile's heels

So there we were, perfectly content with T-Mobile rolling out the HTC Snap/Captain/Dash 2 sometime soon, when this had to come along and muck up the works.

According to Engadget, what you see here is the HTC XV6175. And as you might guess from the excellent and memorable brand XV6175, that'd make it bound for Verizon. This is pretty much in line with what we've seen from that leaked HTC roadmap as the Willow, which we've also heard could make an appearance as soon as June.

No word on pricing or actual availability. Let's just hope it's quicker than Verizon managed to launch the Touch Diamond.

And is it just us, or does that rendering here look vaguely like a Treo 800w from the waist down?
