HTC Nike Leak

HTC is already planning to improve on the foundations of the Touch smartphone just months after its launch, claims the source of a new leak. The Nike, also known as the 5500, would add a sliding number pad to the phone for users who would rather have physical keys for dialing, launching e-mail, or typing. The expansion would additionally bring 3G Internet access over HSDPA and UMTS and would accordingly include a small front video camera for live calls. The screen would be slightly smaller at 2.6 inches but would preserve the custom touch interface loaded on top of Windows Mobile. GPS may also be onboard, according to the tip.

No carriers for the phone have been identified, and HTC may release the device unlocked upon its reported launch in September. The history of the Touch indicates that a North American version is possible at a later date and could be destined for AT&T if the device arrives locked to a particular network. [via Unwired View]
