Dutch Mobile Phone Helpdesk got new information and a photo of the yet to be announced HTC Raphael which Mobile Phone Helpdesk shows in the T-Mobile design. According to the information, T-Mobile will launch the Raphael later this year in Europe as "T-Mobile MDA Vario IV". Feature-wise, the HTC Raphael - which is expected to be announced by HTC as the "HTC Touch Pro" - is quite similar to HTC's Touch Diamond except that it features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard which makes it the follower of the HTC TyTN II. Other features includes Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS/HSDPA (and most likely HSUPA), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g, GPS and an FM radio:

Like the HTC Touch Diamond, the HTC Raphael is also expected to feature a VGA touchscreen with TouchFLO 3D, a 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera and, according to Mobile Phone Helpdesk, the Raphael includes 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM which can be expanded with microSD memory cards.
At a size of 103 x 52 x 18 mm, the Raphael is said to weight 158 g which is exactly the same weight as Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 which is also manufactured by HTC.

UPDATE: It's not a rumor anymore. Like with the MDA compact IV which T-Mobile previewed during the last CeBIT already, T-Mobile again showed HTC's latest smartphone before HTC announced it and it seems, T-Mobile Germany officially announced the MDA Vario IV aka the HTC Raphael during a press event today.

Cheers ~ Arne
