Further HTC Omni details emerge – is this the hottest true Smartphone?

Chris Davies - Jul 10, 2007

We already know that the upcoming HTC Omniis a slick little swine (and let’s just leave all the “is it an iPhone beater?” discussion aside, because it’s dull and I’m as bored of it as I suspect you are); now new information out of PDAdb.net lathes further lushness on the clamshell smartphone, including some tasty tidbits about the higher-than-ever cellular broadband support.


We already knew about the UMTS and HSDPA, but a leaked spec-sheet tells us the compact handset (81 x 130 x 16 mm) will also have HSUPA (High-Speed Uplink Packet Access, the flip side to HSDPA’s Downlink Packet Access) for incredible connectivity as well as a 3.1-megapixel camera with LED flash.  That 800 x 480 display is a touchscreen, too.

Full Specs:

  • 32 bit Qualcomm MSM7200 Chipset, 384 MHZ CPU Clock
  • 256 MB ROM
  • 128 RAM
  • 800 x 480 px TFT 262 color touchscreen
  • GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS850, UMTS1900, UMTS2100 connectivity
  • CSD, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA data support
  • Built-in QWERTY-type keyboard, 65 keys
  • SDIO, microSD, TransFlash expansion slots
  • USB 2.0 client, 60Mbit/s , USB Series Mini-B (mini-USB) connector
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 802.11b, 802.11g
  • NMEA 0183 , 20 channels built-in GPS
  • 3.1 Mpx camera with LED flash
  • 640×480 VGA secondary camera
  • Windows Mobile 6.0 OS
  • Dimensions: 81 x 130 x 16 mm

I’m getting increasingly excited about the Omni; it might not have the slick interface of some handsets or the sheer pocketability, but the features make me moist in my gentleman’s places.
