As Taiwanese DigiTimes.com reports today, Dopod International - HTC's own retailer for the Asian market - plans to launch its first GPS-enabled PDA mobile phone by the end of the third quarter or early in the fourth quarter, aiming to strengthen its presence in the consumer segment, according to company sources.

I would say - GPS enabled PDA mobile phone isn't the whole information at all. Since Dopod is a daughter company of HTC, which is manufacturing Windows Mobile devices only, it can be expected that HTC is indeed working on a Windows Mobile powered Pocket PC Phone Edition with GPS now.

So far, HTC has launched one GPS-device only (if you leave contract-manufacturing for others like HP out of the scope) - the HTC Galaxy - for instance sold by i-mate as "PDA-N" but the HTC Galaxy wasn't a Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition at all but just a plain Pocket PC.

No further information were given yet, so we have to wait until end of Q3 I think, until HTC will say more.

Cheers ~ Arne
