How many news can you post about a "single device" in one week only? 8O On Monday we have heard first time about the HTC Wizard, following by leaked FCC specifications and photos and now, phoneArena got more information on a HTC Pocket PC Phone Edition, called "HTC Apache".

According phoneArena, the HTC Apache is s CDMA version of the HTC Wizard. According to phoneArena, the Apache will feature an Intel Bulverde 416MHz (or possibly, 520MHz) CPU (you remember, the Wizard features a TI OMAP CPU with 200 MHz only), 64MB RAM, 128MB ROM, Java Virtual Machine support, CDMA/EV-DO support, a 1.3 Megapixel camera with photo-flash, 802.11b Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 1.2, IR, a miniSD card slot, a 240x320 screen as well as a 1300mAh Li-Ion battery and of course, Windows Mobile 5.0.

phoneArena claims that the source of the information on this device is reliable.

Cheers ~ Arne

Interesting.  Here go the US, EVDO is the only cellular high speed data widely available.  As much as I love GSM and dislike CDMA, I'm planning on switching go the next couple weeks so I can use EVDO.

Yeah, I see. The speed is a good reason to change even if I prefer GSM/UMTS over CDMA EVDO too and it's a shame that the industry and countries missed the opportunity to launch one single 3G standard all over the world.

Cingular here in the USA does have GSM/UMTS available in a very few select cities, so it shouldn't be much longer.  I figure I can live with CDMA for a year, then hopefully the American GSM carriers will have their act together and have coverage in more locations.  I feel like we are always ligh years behind the rest of the world when it comes to mobile technology.

Oh they have? Wasn't aware that you have UMTS in the US; good to know. Hope the will extend their UMTS coverage to Seattle until end of September if I'm there! ;-) And that one of the German carriers will have a UMTS International Roaming in place until September.

You can check out Cingular's UMTS info  here.  It looks like they do have coverage in Seatle.  Don't know about roaming agreements though.
