I think it's safe to say the cat is out of the bag now. According to Dutch website, the HTC smartphone, we knew so far under its codename "HTC Polaris", will hit the shops as "HTC Touch Cruise" and also got the specs confirmed. Therefore, the HTC Polaris will sports Windows Mobile 6 Professional and features a Qualcomm MSM7200 CPU at 400 MHz. Furthermore, the Polaris will supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA and even HSUPA and for sure Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi b/g. The device is baked-up with 128 MB of RAM and 256 MB of ROM and the 2.8" touchscreen supports QVGA. On the back, we have - as seen before already - a 3 megapixel camera (which is said to be auto focus) plus the secondary 0.3 megapixel camera on the front.

Furthermore, someone at "What A Smart Idea" recently got his hands on a real HTC Polaris and posted a couple of high quality pictures:

The photos above confirms, that the HTC Polaris will indeed features HTC's TouchFLO technology as expected.

According to, the HTC Touch Cruise will be released in November.

Cheers ~ Arne

Looks good! Now pack it in a nice(er) housing and give it a Touch Dual-like slide-out 20 keys keypad! cool

I don't need or want a keyboard or any sliding mech at all

Is the GPS really gone?

Posted by Arne Hess on 20.10.07 - 16:02:28

Sorry, my fault. I should have it mentioned that GPS is still part of the specs, at least it's the highlight and USP.
However it's not yet clear if it is SiRF or based on the Qualcomm radio chip.

Is there an FM radio available in the Polaris?

Posted by Arne Hess on 23.10.07 - 16:42:44

Good question. Nothing mentioned yet but if it should be a Windows Mobile smartphone with navigation-focus, it better has an FM radio which can be used as a TMC receiver as well.
