Italian 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 slide-out keyboard:

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.

Cheers ~ Arne
