According to Taiwanese DigiTimes, HTC (High Tech Computer) is expected to launch its second TouchFLO-controlled smartphone supporting UMTS and HSDPA standard perhaps as soon as September, market sources indicated.
The new smartphone is likely to be the HTC P5500 (codenamed Nike) which the company unveiled in the first half of this year, indicated the sources, noting that the P5500 will be built using a CPU from Samsung Electronics and chipsets from Qualcomm and supporting the WCDMA standard.

If rumors turns out to be true, the HTC Nike is a HTC Touch look-alike Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone with TouchFLO touch screen technologies but furthermore adds a auto sliding keyboard:

Further features are expected to include 128 MB ROM, 64 MB RAM, microSD, a 2 megapixel camera on the back as well as a front facing QVGA video telephony camera and Bluetooth. WiFi wasn't mentioned so far.

No further information available yet and it's not clear, where the September launch will happens (Asia or Europe) first.

Cheers ~ Arne

No GPS or WiFi? I could believe the GPS, but I doubt HTC will release this (or any other of their phones) without WiFi these days. Both GPS and WiFi should be onboard the chip set already. The only things which could need space are the antennas, but I doubt that they will take too much space.

Does it have a FM radio though? Because the earlier design/specs as mentioned on mention an FM radio.
