According to smartmobilegadgets blog, HTC is working on a new Windows Mobile Professional smartphone which is expected to be released soon. The HTC Opal, which is most likely a codename only, seems to be HTC's planned low-entry follower of the HTC Touch and like the HTC Touch, also the HTC Opal is a 2.5G Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone supporting quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE only. UMTS and HSDPA are left, most likely in favor of the price. Nevertheless. WiFi b/g as well as Bluetooth 2.0 are also part of the HTC Opal. Also the HTC Opal is expected to be powered by a TI OMAP 850 CPU at 200 MHz only.

According to the published data sheet, the device still features a QVGA 2.8" touchscreen as well as a 2 megapixel fixfocus camera while Opera Mobile will be available optional. Last but not least, the HTC Opal sports 128 MB RAM and 256 MB ROM which can be expanded with microSD cards.

A release date or price isn't known yet but according to smartmobilegadgets blog, the release can be expected soon.

Cheers ~ Arne

You're a little late -- it's available for purchase at their site; the blog entry you reference is an old one.

A little late, available for purchase on their site? Man, what are you talking about? It's about the HTC Opal, not about the HTC Touch and the Opal is neither announced nor available for purchase yet!

@benjitek: The blog entry is from yesterday. Okay, I might be 24 hours late but I haven't seen a single reference where it is yet available for purchase? Do you have a link?
