I've posted about the Trinity before and it looks like the HTC Trinity is now known as HTC Artemis but I've just received an E-Mail with further information about a kind of Trinity "refresh" (or however you want to call this device).
According to the anonymous tipster, the news Trinity is a kind of HTC Magician/Prophet follower but that one is UMTS-enabled which would make it the smallest UMTS-enabled Pocket PC Phone Edition at the moment. And yes, it's even expected to support triband UMTS (850/1900/2100 MHz) and even HSDPA as well as quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz), Bluetooth 2.0 and W-LAN IEE802.11 b/g. On the back, it should has a 2 megpixel camera while on front it should either has a QCIF+ or a QVGA camera for video telephony.
Powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 it's expected to sport a Samsung S3C2442 CPU with 400 MHz (the TI OMAP 850 CPU is not strong enough for UMTS and video telephony) and it should looks similar to this:

Supposedly, the release is planned for Q4 2006. Also I haven't received any further information yet so I cannot comment on this but hey, the drawing above looks promising enough and reminds me on my beloved HTC Prophet.

UPDATE: Okay, now I know where the previous HTC Artemis and this HTC Trinity news came from. "BengalBoy" has recently posted the full HTC Q3/Q4 2006 roadmap including the specifications of the Artemis and Trinity.

Cheers ~ Arne
