I wrote about HTC's Excalibur UMTS- follower, the HTC Cavalier, last week the first time and now, Italian website SoloPalmari published the first photo of the HTC Cavalier, together with some specs. While for me, the Cavalier looks a little bit like a different Excalibur ID, I have no doubt that SoloPalmari is right since they haven't failed too often in the past. Nevertheless, like the HTC MTeoR, also this version of the HTC Cavalier hasn't have a front facing camera for UMTS video telephony. All the rest looks - as I said - like a slightly modified Excalibur:
According to SoloPalmari, the form factor of the HTC Cavalier is very similar to the HTC Excalibur but the device improved features and specs and will also sell more expensive. The information, SoloPalmari received mentioned, that the Cavalier will run on Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone, is powered by a 400 MHz Samsung SC 2442 CPU and includes 64 MB RAM and 128 MB ROM which can be extended by microSD memory cards. Unfortunately, also the Cavalier will not sport a traditional jog wheel but HTC's JOGGR.
The photo and video camera is expected to support 2 megapixel and on the wireless side, the Cavalier will support quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA as well as WiFi b/g and Bluetooth 2.0.
No release date is known yet but early 2007 is still rumored.
