HTC unveils EVDO Rev. A-capable Libra smartphone

HTC Libra

The CTIA expo in Los Angeles has seen the introduction of numerous phones to North American shores, including yesterday's announcement of the Cingular 3125 and the RAZR V3i with iTunes. The latest and perhaps most technically advanced release so far at CTIA is the HTC Libra. Also known as the UTStarcom 5800, the Libra will be one of the first handsets to support the higher speeds of EVDO Rev. A. It will also shrink in size compared to other HTC models by using a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for messaging. The CDMA-based phone will be available through North American carriers by the first quarter of 2007; a GSM version likely to use EDGE or HSDPA mobile broadband should arrive later that year. Prices and other details have not been announced.
