LEAK: HTC's expected Q1/Q2 2010 Windows Mobile Phone Roadmap hits the Web

In addition to HTCs expected Android roadmap for the 1st half of 2010, in the global meeting in Vienna, HTC also presented its Windows Mobile Windows phone roadmap to T-Mobile.
And like the Android roadmap, it's not yet clear how much the Windows Mobile presentation reflects HTC's upcoming GSM/UMTS roadmap but again it's clear that this can't reflect HTC's North American CDMA roadmap of Windows phones. In any case, while HTC seems to assign its upcoming Android smartphones to the Design, Performance and Social categories, Windows Mobile smartphones are assigned to the Productivity category only.

Productivity: Photon, Trophy and Tera

Available in April 2010.

Available in May 2010.

Availability not yet given.

The HTC Photon (wasn't Photon the initial code-name for Windows Mobile 7?) seems to be a kind of cheap HTC HD2 or HTC Touch Diamond2 follower, featuring a quite similar/reduced feature-set. Quite interesting is the HTC Trophy since - in addition to the touchscreen - it sports a front-facing hardware keyboard. Quite obvious is the fact that the Tera must be the follower of today's HTC Touch Pro2. And while the first two smartphones will feature a capacitive touchscreen, the Tera is said to continue with a resistive touchscreen only.
Also noticeable is the fact that non of the devices above is said to run on Windows Mobile 7 which somewhat confirms the rumors that Microsoft will not release its next Windows Mobile operating system before 2nd half of 2010.

Cheers ~ Arne

So HTC will launch a mobile phone that will have the same specs as the HTC HD2 but running on Android? (A kind of HTC Hero) That's funny because I can recall one of the HTC big guys saying that HTC has no intentions launching the HD2 with Android. It seems that HTC has said more things that turned out to be false later on. For example the fact that they wouldn't launch a netbook, but now they are working on it. Nevertheless for me the Hero is a great phone.

Well, to me this lineup looks little strange. HD2 and Pro2 followers with HVGA and WQVGA screens? Why? This look more like "budget" versions of "professional" devices like Diamond2 and Pro2 with lower end CPUs and WM6.5 and the "real" next generation devices will have WVGA resolution, 800MHz+ CPUs and of course WM7...
