sure where or how CNet Germany got its hand on this Windows Mobile Standard
smartphone but during the recent
Mobile World Congress,
CNet Germany spent some quality time with a so far
unannounced 2009 HTC smartphone, the "HTC Maple", a kind of HTC Excalibur
follower with a QWERTY thumb-keyboard and a BlackBerry-like trackball.
Most likely featuring Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, it's only confirmed that the
Maple is featuring a 2.0 megapixel camera. It's neither confirmed if the HTC
Maple supports 3/3.5G nor is it known if WiFi or GPS are onboard or not:
In addition to the blurry photos above, CNet Germany was also able to
record a short video of the HTC Maple
It's not yet known if the HTC Maple will be released nor is it known at what
time and where.
