You might have read about a new, so far unknown Windows Mobile "Pocket" PC called HTC Magnum  during the past hours and no - even if it was well made - the HTC Magnum isn't real at all. I have no idea if it is a Portuguese tradition to make some jokes on Carnival (maybe something similar to April Fool?) but it was a joke - not more not less.
The makers of the photos and the video used an HP 20" LCD screen which they connected to a HTC X7500 Advantage and the results looked quite real:

But anyway - it shows how useful a Windows Mobile device with VGA out can be. More real Windows Mobile related news coming soon - latest next week from the Mobile World Congress.

Cheers ~ Arne
