Well, I'm sure you remember my last week's posting about the HTC Athena and while the hardware design and feature-set looks pretty promising, the specs aren't. Until last night, when I've received an interesting E-Mail from an anonymous tipster and if these specs turns out to be true, the HTC Athena might become the 2007 uber device:

I have some news for you regarding HTC Athena. The picture is true but the published specs are not.

Real Athena specs are as follows:

  • Device is bit larger than the HTC Universal and more square, also it's quite heavier than the Universal
  • It's about the same thickness
  • It has a detachable keyboard which is partly made from clear plastic so when it works as a cover of the HTC Athena, you can still see basic information on the main screen like signal power or battery
  • When keyboard works as a stand, the device stands on it (it's communicating by the connector on the keyboard and connecting 'pads' on the side of the Athena when it stands on the keyboard and is kept together by strong magnets)
  • Keyboard is kept in place by magnets in closed position as well
  • Device has 5" VGA 640x480 screen
  • Further features includes:
    • GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS
    • Bluetooth 2.0
    • W-LAN b/g
    • 624 MHz processor,
    • 8 GB drive
    • 3 megapixel camera with flash
    • GPS
    • 2200 mAh battery
    • G-Sensor
    • VGA out
    • Stereo speakers
    • miniSD

So what do you think? Too good to be true? Either these are really updated specs for the Windows Mobile HTC Athena or it's the specs of the also rumored (Windows-based) HTC UMPC; I don't know. Also I haven't heard anything about planned release dates yet but I will try to keep you updated.

Cheers ~ Arne
