The 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 HTC Touch:

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).
