Specifications and a render of the HTC Flyer have supposedly leaked, ahead of the 7-inch tablet's expected sales debut in March. According to Amobil, the Flyer will have a 1024 x 600 resolution display - putting it on a par with the Galaxy Tab and run Qualcomm's 1GHz MSM8255 processor as found in the Desire HD.
That would make it a single-core chip, rather than the dual-core processors like the Tegra 2 found in rival slates. Still, the Adreno 205 graphics would apparently be good enough to make an HDMI output worthwhile, and there's supposedly twin cameras: a 1.3-megapixel webcam for video calls over Skype, and a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and face-recognition.
Google’s Nexus One may reign as the fastest smartphone currently on the market, but rumor has it that a newer and even more powerful HTC smartphone is already in the works. It may be called the HTC Scorpion (possibly codenamed “Olympian”), and it’s allegedly packing a 1.5GHz Snapdragon processor.
It’s apparent that HTC’s kicking it up a notch with their naming system, with the surfacing of the HTC Incredible just moments ago on the internet. Some leaked snapshots and video of the device depict the high-end specs of the newly glimpsed phone from HTC, which should be operating on Verizon’s network.
While there were several enticing models in the leaked HTC 2010 roadmap yesterday - it's about time someone released an Android-based candybar with QWERTY, for instance - the most interesting was undoubtedly the HTC Bravo. The company's first Android device to use a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, perennial leak grabbers ai.rs have managed to find a better shot of the AMOLED smartphone.
The latest DigiTimes rumors are in, and this time they don't seem all that unlikely. According to industry sources in Taiwan, Acer's F1 and HTC's Leo - both using the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz chipset - will each drop in Q4 this year, complete with Windows Mobile 6.5. They also finger ASUS and Inventec as developing Snapdragon-based smartphones, though those are unlikely to hit full-scale production until the first half of 2010.
Details of an upcoming HTC Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone, the HTC Leo, have leaked, and if you thought the Toshiba TG01 had a big display then prepare for even more surprise. Like the TG01, the Leo is based on Qualcomm's MSM8250 1GHz Snapdragon chipset, only with a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touchscreen.
HTC are planning to launch at least one Qualcomm Snapdragon-based mobile device in Q2 2009, according to market sources in Taiwan. The devices are expected hit the market one quarter later than Toshiba's own Snapdragon-based handset, the TG01, which was announced earlier this week.
HTC is looking to the success of the ASUS Eee range to reconfigure its own product strategy, according to a DigiTimes report. HTC president and CEO, Peter Chou, is quoted as stating that the Eee's success has impacted significantly on UMPC development, and that HTC will be forced to "adjust its deployment" of UMPCs. Currently the HTC Shift is the best-known UMPC from the company.
