website SoloPalmari got its hand on the HTC Herald and has published some blurry
photos of the device, which
could will become the smaller, lighter and thinner
brother of the HTC Hermes follower of the HTC Wizard.
According to SoloPalmari, the Herald features basically the same HTC Hermes
specs (including GSM, GPRS, EDGE,
UMTS and HSDPA) but in a (measured) 18
mm-thick form factor only!
Other features are Mobile Windows 5.0, TI OMAP 850 CPU with 200 MHz, 64 MB RAM
and 128 MB ROM, sporting a 2.8'' QVGA screen, a 2 megapixel camera on the back
and - since it is expected to
become the lighter brother of the HTC Hermes
be the follower of the HTC Wizard - a
According to SoloPalmari the front facing video camera was left since HTC was
asked to remove it, similar to the HTC MTeoR which also excludes the camera (in
the European version). This can not be seen as an indication, that the device
might be GSM only. No word yet about W-LAN support, a planned release date or
regions, where we can expect the device to be released.
UPDATE: From a really trusted source I got the word, that the HTC Herald is
not supporting UMTS/HSDPA but GSM/GPRS/EDGE only. Therefore the HTC Herald is
not the follower of the HTC Hermes but the follower of the HTC Wizard.
