Okay, after the earlier leak of the HTC Apache, you remember, the EVDO brother of the HTC Wizard, the first real photos (and confirmed specification? ) hits the Web, over at Xda-Developers.com.
It looks like the earlier specifications became true, except the CPU which seems to be confirmed with 416 MHz (not the rumored 520 MHz):
- CPU Intel PXA270
- Speed 416 Mhz
- RAM size 64 MB
- Flash size 128 MB
- Flash Chip type G3
- Data bus 32 bits
- Storage size 43.50 MB
- LCD 240 x 320 TFT
- Colors 65536
In addition to the specs and the photos, "lucnchboxfett" (who got his hands on the device) also posted his first impressions:
I think the keyboard is better than the blue angel but not as good as the Blackberry keyboard. They really have the best design. The slider feels a little tight and the keys are lighted when pressing a button on them. It doesn't feel heavy to hold the phone but sometimes I think that I am holding a small brick in my hand. It uses a mini USB for charging and sync. I'm so happy to see that, I hate have different cables on my desk to connect another device. I was playing with the WLAN last night and it did detect my setup, but I have it broadcasting and no security. It looks like it only supports WEP for encrption.
Well, what do you think? I don't like the antenna, makes it so 90s but seems to be a great Wizard alternative for the North American market. Yet, there is no confirmation which carrier(s) might pick it up.
