BLUNDER: Yahoo! Go 2.0 lists the unannounced HTC S730 as supported Smartphone [UPDATE]

It's nothing new that HTC will (sooner or later) release a UMTS-enabled version of the HTC Vox (aka the HTC 710) and it's expected to be released as the HTC S730 aka HTC Wings, featuring Windows Mobile 6 Standard, GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA and as well as Bluetooth and WiFi. But it makes me a kind of wonder, that a device, which just leaked from the roadmap yet (but AFAIK doesn't leaked with a photo so far) made it to Yahoo!'s Yahoo! Go 2.0 list of supported devices already!? And even better - Yahoo!, which signed a strategic partnership with HTC earlier this year, links back to HTC as well and who knows, maybe Yahoo! knows more already - thanks to the strategic partnership with HTC:

Again, it's clear that we will see the device - sooner or later - released but since when are sites like Yahoo! mentioning devices which aren't released yet? This is pretty uncommon (please note - Yahoo! also lists the not yet officially released/announced HTC P4550 aka HTC Kaiser).

Hm, I don't hope it's a mistake since the HTC S730 is definitely one of the few devices I'm really awaiting to be launched and we will see what happens. I don't have any further information yet but for sure, a UMTS/HSDPA upgraded HTC Vox is appealing me!

UPDATE: Beside the HTS S730 and HTC P4550, Yahoo! Go 2.0 also mentions the so far unannounced HTC P6500 and HTC S420:

Thanks to "MTM" for the reminder. I've completely overseen this yesterday. Pretty funny what Yahoo! already "knows" about upcoming HTC devices (or not).

Cheers ~ Arne

LOL... big_smile You are right! I was so fascinated by the fact to see the S730 there that I've completely overseen the other devices. Just verified with the Kaiser.

Hmmm... What does it tells us? Is Yahoo! using leaked roadmaps to spice up their compatibility list or knows Yahoo! more? roll

Funny! Maybe Y! will become the exclusive HTC distributor in the US?

I also overlooked the other two at first smile

With the P6500 listed I am inclined to believe they just use leaked roadmaps. But of course, then the P5500 should also be listed... Maybe the future will tell if there's something going on with Yahoo! and HTC...
