HTC Vox Photo Leak
Official press images for the upcoming HTC Vox have been leaked that reveal substantial changes to the design, according to the Boy Genius Report. Previously thought to have been running the current-generation Windows Mobile 5 operating system, the Vox is now set to ship with the Vista-influenced version 6, nicknamed "Crossbow," The future OS is said to greatly improve the appearance of the longstanding handheld OS and bring its features more closely in check with its desktop equivalent.
The official photography also confirms a new, more ergonomic design to the smartphone, placing the spacebar in a more natural location while also leaving room for a set of arrow keys to help with text navigation. A previously hinted-at 2-megapixel camera is also known to be part of the design. A final launch timeframe for the Vox was not provided with the photos, though a spring 2007 release in North America and Europe remains likely.
