UNVEILED: HTC Polaris GPS Windows Mobile Smartphone shows its face

Time is gone since we've heard about the HTC Polaris last time and unlike expected, HTC hasn't unveiled it during its last week's press events. However, someone in Portugal managed to got his hands on one and was even able to make some photos (as far as I know these are the first real photos of the Polaris).
The HTC Polaris is the UMTS follower of the HTC P3300 (HTC Artemis) and expected to feature Windows Mobile 6 Professional, GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi b/g and Bluetooth as well as a FM radio and for sure A-GPS (chipset yet unknown):

As you can see on the right photo above, the HTC Polaris (commercial name still uncertain) also features the new Touch-like TouchFLO display which is, according to the source, again QVGA only.

A release date wasn't given yet but at least we know now that the first samples exists, so it shouldn't take too long anymore (maybe still this year) to see it released.

Cheers ~ Arne

Can anyone make out whether the screen is recessed? I hope it's not recessed like the touch so it'll be a breeze to text

AFAIK it's not recessed but flat like the Touch/Touch Dual since, as far as I know, it's the same "biotouch" kind of display.
I've heard that this kind of display is HTC's new line and the HTC TyTN II was one of the last devices with a traditional PDA touch screen. Most upcoming devices will feature flat biotouch displays which makes sense since this is quite unique in the Windows Mobile world today.
