HTC Iris Coming to Telus
Canadian cell provider Telus may be the first home in North America for the HTC Iris, claims a network insider. The 2-megapixel, GPS- and Wi-Fi-equipped smartphone will reportedly sell under its alternate S640 name and will be released alongside or close to a localized version of Palm's Treo 755p. Both are most likely due in early September, according to the company source, though their pricing and the incorporation of any custom Telus features were not mentioned in the alleged leak.
Also part of the claims were mentions of an unknown phone from HTC known as the P3050. The device may represent the recently leaked Polaris and would therefore be a step above the Iris with a larger 3.5-inch screen and a sharper 3-megapixel camera. Launch details for the P3050 are largely indefinite, though the leak indicates its release would follow shortly after that of the S640 in an attempt to stagger the phone introductions. [via BGR]
