Looks like DigiTimes Taiwan got some decent information about the 2007' HTC Windows Mobile devices roadmap. At least the, always well informed, news site posted some further information, what HTC plans to release (which doesn't means we will see it a) launched in our countries and b) launched in the time frame DigiTimes tells us). So according its sources, HTC (High Tech Computer) expects to ship up to 2.4 million handsets in the second quarter of 2007, up from the up to 2 million units it shipped in the first quarter. These estimations were revealed by a Taiwan-based handset component makers.

The planned launch of three new Windows Mobile Standard and Professional smartphones, the HTC S420 , P4550 and P3450, as well as the later to be released P6500, P5500 and S730, will help drive shipments for the second quarter, the sources indicated.

  • The S420 (codenamed HTC Erato), which is expected in April targeting the entry-level segment, will be powered by a 400 MHz Samsung processor and Windows Mobile 6 Standard. The S420 is expected to be a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE smartphone with 3G/HSDPA
  • The Windows Mobile 6 Professional-based P4550 (codenamed HTC Kaiser) will also be powered by a 400 MHz Samsung processor, and beside HSDPA it will also support HSUPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and a 2.8-megapixel camera, and yet has a thickness of only 1.8 cm, the sources indicated. it's expected to be launched in June.
  • The HTC P3450 (codenamed HTC Elf) is a mid-range device featuring a TI OMAP 850 CPU only and sporting Windows Mobile 6 Professional. Also the HTC P3450 is expected to be launched in June.
  • In addition, HTC also plans to launch three 3.5G handsets, the P6500 (codenamed HTC Sirius), P5500 (codenamed HTC Nike) and S730 (codenamed HTC Wings) in the third quarter, the sources noted:
    • The S730 is expected to be available in July and will come with dual keypads, HSDPA, Wi-Fi GPS support and featuring Windows Mobile Professional.
    • The P6500, which features Windows Mobile Professional as well, a 3.5" display and fingerprint recognition, is expected in August.
    • The P5500, which features Windows Mobile 6 Professional as well, is supposed to support HSUPA and a 2.8 megapixel camera. The launch is expected in September.

Again, none of the devices above are confirmed yet but if DigiTimes reports about it, they must be serious.
