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
