The Boy Genius Report got some information, that T-Mobile U.S. is expected to launch a new Windows Mobile smartphone code-named the HTC Juno.
According to the source, the expected device is Windows Mobile based and has a "consumer friendly interface, most likely HTC's TouchFlo,".
Furthermore it should have a QWERTY keyboard, even if the keyboard on the rendering bellow looks like a kind of "SureType" keypad:

Well, for me the HTC Juno was a kind of HTC Wings/HTC Volans so far and I'm uncertain if the device above is the "Juno". Also the keys looks like a Windows Mobile based Standard smartphone (non-touchscreen) but is if it is a Standard smartphone, how should HTC's TouchFlo works (which requires a touchscreen)?
If you ask me, this devices reminds me way more on Vodafone's recently announced Vodafone 920 Windows Mobile Smartphone. Both are slider phones and sports a similar button layout, except that the T-Mobile device above features that kind of SureType keypad.
On the other hand, the Vodafone device is a 3G smartphone while T-Mobile U.S. hasn't has the 3G network up and running commercially now.

Anyway, according to the source, a release can be expected for October which should give us clearness soon.

Cheers ~ Arne

This device might be interesting (if it features VGA).

But what I really like about this device is the design.
Why? Because it looks pretty much the same as the design of the HTC Omni that we've seen on some pics before (look at the red navigation buttons for example).
So this might be a hint that the Omni really exists and might be out soon (hopefully).

That's an interesting idea that the T-Mobile device (or even more the Vodafone 920) represents a new design-line, the Omni might be part of as well. If so, the design of the upcoming devices could be quite promising!

PS: I've edited your posting and added a link to the Omni design that everybody can follow our discussion. Hope you don't mind.

Well. This handset is based on the same hadware paltform as Vodafone 920. So HTC Juno or not.. this is real.
