weeks ago, I wrote here about a DigiTimes article which was
mentioning a GPS enabled Pocket
PC Phone Edition, HTC is currently working on and here we go with some
further news bits from NaviGadget.
According to a posting from August 3rd, the GPS enabled Pocket PC Phone Edition
is called "HTC Artemis" and indeed it's featuring GPS, quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE
and a FM radio (which means the device could also support the TMC-service for
GPS navigation), W-LAN and a 2 megapixel camera.
It's expected to run Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition and is
powered by a TI OMAP CPU at 200 MHz. Interesting enough, the specs and button
layout looks pretty much like the HTC Trinity,
Engadget Mobile wrote about before. However, the code name is a different
now as well as image:
Well, I haven't heard anything official yet but according to NaviGadget, the HTC
Artemis is expected to hit the stores in third quarter while it wasn't mentioned
where it should be released nor for how much it might retail.
UPDATE: Okay, now I know where the this HTC Artemis and the next HTC Trinity news came from. "BengalBoy" has recently posted the full HTC Q3/Q4 2006 roadmap including the specifications of the Artemis and Trinity.
