addition to the
leaked Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphones, The Boy Genius Report also
published a list of Windows Mobile 6 Professional devices,
seems to plan to release during 2008. Like the list of Standard devices, also
this list includes so far unknown and unannounced smartphones from Palm, HP and
Vodafone. Therefore Palm plans to release a follower to its
Palm Treo 750v,
the Palm Drucker (Windows Mobile 6.1, again with QWERTY keyboard, GSM/UMTS/HSDPA
but now also with WiFi and GPS) while HP has the HP Oak in work (a slide-out
QWERTY keyboard Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone with WiFi and GPS) and
Vodafone's own ODM project is the Vodafone v16xx (GPRS only devices with GPS and
Expected launched for all three devices is in the second half of 2008.
Interesting that Vodafone isn't listing a single HTC device but since this seems
to be the roadmap of Vodafone UK the reason might be that HTC devices are
sourced by Vodafone Global.
