HTC Juno for T-Mobile?

An anonymous source indicates that an unusual HTC phone is headed to T-Mobile. Called the Juno, it is said to run Windows Mobile, but with a "wow screen and interface," which the source adds is most likely the TouchFLO interface found on the namesake Touch phone. Somewhat resembling the iPhone's concept, TouchFLO lets users control a device through finger gestures on a large touchscreen.

More remarkable may be the keypad, which is described as a QWERTY keyboard, but more closely resembles the SureType scheme used in RIM's BlackBerry phones. The compressed layout of BlackBerries allows relatively high-speed typing without occupying as much space as a full keyboard. The Juno is currently pegged as a T-Mobile exclusive, and is expected to ship in mid- to late October. [via Boy Genius Report]
