LEAKED: HTC's 2007 Windows Mobile Roadmap hits the Web

Not Tagged has received information about HTC's 2007 roadmap. For accuracy of these data, mentions that we shall not warrant, as it can still change but I also received the information, that these information are indeed accurate (as of today). Apparently the next year looks pretty promising for Windows Mobile fans since all the devices bellow are running on Microsoft's Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone platform.!

Nominally novelties could be divided into two main categories. The first category includes those, which are already known from the Web, including the HTC X7500 (HTC Athena), HTC P3350 (HTC Love), the HTC S650 (HTC Cavalier) and the HTC S710 (HTC Vox - picture bellow):

The second part includes new devices we haven't heard about or even seen yet. Very little is known about them, but it is enough to make a rough idea of them. The most curious model carries the code name Omni. This PDA is likely to become the long-awaited sequel of the legendary HTC Universal.

Another keyboard model, which is supposed to be issued in spring, is HTC Kaiser. Its form-factor is already known on HTC TyTN and HTC P4350 (Herald). Actually, it will be a slightly modified and advanced TyTN, which will have a GPS receiver in addition to the same QVGA-screen, the support of 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and a powerful processor (400 Mhz).

The second PDA phone, called Elf, may be included into the category of budgetary PDA phones, as having 2.8" screen diagonal, common for modern devices, it possesses only a base set of characteristics (200 MHz, wireless part with support of Bluetooth, but without Wi-Fi). This device is a bright example of the new class of inexpensive and fashionable gadgets: thin case, original design etc. The advanced functions have remained insignificant. The usual hardware buttons in Elf will be replaced by a touchpad, so in most cases you can operate this device with a finger without taking out the stylus.

Apart from the Smartphones HTC S710 (Vox) and HTC S650 (Cavalier), mentioned above, the following year expects two other models – a flagman with the QWERTY-keyboard called Wings and a fashionable clamshell Smartphone (the code name isn't known yet) with advanced characteristics.

The first is likely to become a logic development of the HTC Vox idea, i.e. it will also be equipped with two keyboards – digital and qwerty. The hardware will be updated by means of a more powerful processor, an advanced telephone module with the support of 3G and GPS. Thus, this model will help to overcome the hardware break between Smartphones and PDA phones. The only serious difference still will be a usual (not a touchpad) screen, common for all devices with Windows Mobile for Smartphone.

The second device is a fashionable clamshell Smartphone based on the Qtek 8500, but more advanced and functional (the full wireless complete + GPS) and two displays – external and internal.

Read and see more at If this roadmap turns out to be true, it's really promising. Time to save my pocket money for the next year.

Cheers ~ Arne
