to Taiwanese DigiTimes, HTC (High Tech Computer) is expected to launch its
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.
