While the HTC Firestone is still not confirmed, received a new rendering of a device which looks way more like a new HTC smartphone then the earlier ever did. According to the still unconfirmed information, the HTC Firestone is still expected to run on Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and is said to be powered by a Qualcomm 8250 CPU at 600 MHz. Furthermore it's expected that the Firestone supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as dualband UMTS/HSDPA at 900/2100 MHz, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and aGPS. Furthermore it's now said that the (most likely 3.6" WVGA touchscreen) is capacitive (which makes - with the latest Windows Mobile 6.5 changes - sense).

Being a so called "media centric" smartphone, the Firestone is said to have an externally accessible hot-swappable microSD card slot and large speakers in the front and back for audio playback.

Cheers ~ Arne

I suspect the battery will be to weak. 1500mAh ist minimum (like in htc touch pro 2). Isn't it?

You are absolutely right but if the specs above turn out to be true and the device is indeed a media-centric smartphone, I'm quite sure HTC will use a big enough battery. 1500 mAh (+/-) is a must.
