HTC Vox in Development
Smartphone developer HTC is nearing completion of the first device in the company's next wave of devices, according to leaked product and roadmap information. Named only the Vox, the phone is likely to signal HTC's first use of the Vista-influenced Windows Mobile 6, also known as Crossbow. The Vox is expected to go without a touchscreen in favor of a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but will have an unusually large 96MB of RAM and should be accompanied by a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and WiFi.
HTC currently plans to release the Vox in spring 2007, according to the roadmap. Its intended markets remain unclear, but the company's specifications note that the phone is a quad-band GSM device with EDGE support; as such, it should become available in the US through Cingular or T-Mobile.
