HTC Touch Slide on Mon.?
With an impending host of HTC announcements due October 1st, one of the phones planned is rumored to be the Touch Slide, a successor to the iPhone-like Touch, which has yet to see a North American release. Possibly the true identity of the HTC Nike or Juno, the Slide is said to run Windows Mobile 6, using HTC's flagship TouchFLO interface paired with a 2.6-inch touchscreen. The name is of course a reference to the design, which goes beyond the Touch to add a slide-out keypad. Like the Juno, the Slide appears to have BlackBerry-style typing.
Connection options are expected to include Wi-Fi and HSDPA, and the processor is said to be a 400MHz Qualcomm chip. A front camera would appear to allow video calls, while the rear's still unit is identified as having two megapixels. Media should be saved on microSD cards. No other details are available.
