Late yesterday we received an interesting package from PR firm Waggener Edstrom. The company, which represents both HTC and T-Mobile here in the USA, put a number of clues into a box meant to hold a phone. The clues, all shown in the photo above, are listed out below:

1. Android figure
2. Compass keychain
3. Four "G" buttons attached to the keychain
4. Foam TV set
5. "Froyo Lover" sticker
6. Video Chat screen shot showing Las Vegas

Our guess? A 4G Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone by HTC with navigation, TV viewing, and video chat will be shown at CES in Las Vegas next month.

Since neither HTC nor T-Mobile USA were specifically mentioned in the package, we can't really be sure who sent it. We do note that the hand-drawn look of the font used for the "G" buttons is similar to others used by HTC in its current "You" media campaign, but that could just be T-Mobile hinting that HTC would be building the new device for them. On the other hand, this could be coming on behalf of HTC and be about a new 4G device for Verizon or Sprint, too.

It's hard to say at this point.
