HTC Iris at FCC

HTC is developing a new mid-range smartphone that should offer some advanced features despite a simple design, according to an FCC filing. The S640, nicknamed the Iris, will include a 2.4-inch LCD similar to the Dash or other fixed-keyboard smartphones and will go without a touchscreen. The US government documents also confirm earlier claims that the device will ship with both 802.11g Wi-Fi and a stand-alone GPS receiver for routefinding without requiring a subscription service. HTC will also reportedly include a 2-megapixel camera, a direct mini-USB connection for sideloading data, and mobile broadband over EVDO.

Like most new HTC phones, the Iris should come preloaded with Windows Mobile 6. No release information has been revealed in the FCC documents, but the appearance suggests a release before the end of the year and may bring the phone to CDMA-based networks such as Sprint and Verizon in that timeframe.
