HTC Neon was
recently unveiled by the FCC, which is most likely a Windows Mobile
Professional smartphone with touchscreen and now the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest
Group) lists the HTC Neon too. However unlike the FCC, which approved the Neon
100, the Bluetooth SIG got the Neon 200 for testing - which is a clear
indication that at least 2 different designs exists.
As always, the Bluetooth SIG isn't unveiling too much about the device features
except that it is supporting Bluetooth 2.0+EDR but if you have a closer look on
the FCC label, you might notice that the device seems to feature a front facing
camera, right from the speaker as the
HTC Touch Dual does too.
But unlike the HTC Touch Dual, which holds the SIM card under the battery
cover, the HTC Neon gets the SIM card pluged-in on the left side, similar to the
Clearly this isn't the
HTC Touch Dual,
even if the FCC lists the Neon as the
HT1100 which is
NTT DoCoMo's name for the HTC Touch Dual but a completely different device,
possibly a quadband GSM and triband UMTS/HSDPA mix of the HTC Touch design and
HTC Touch Dual WWAN features (which sports triband GSM and singleband UMTS/HSDPA
only as of today).
