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.
