Juno is T-Mobile Shadow?
An anonymous source suggests that the HTC Juno, a phone already said to be headed to T-Mobile, will in fact come to the carrier under the moniker of the Shadow. Also mentioned is that while the phone will only have a 201MHz processor, it should compensate with 128MB of RAM and 256MB of ROM, as well as a host of abilities. Among these are Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi, along with the signature keypad that is said to mimic the SureType concept used in Research in Motion's BlackBerry phones. The Shadow is expected to be announced in mid-October, and released later that month in brown and "sage green" colors.
Meanwhile, phone Arena notes that HTC's Asian brand, Dopod, is producing a phone called the C750 (below), which resembles the Juno concept images in many regards, including the keypad. The 750 is said to run Windows Mobile 6 Standard, and have a 2.6-inch screen with 480x640 resolution; because of the version of WM6, however, it may not have any touch abilities. This could rule it out as a Juno candidate. An announcement of new HTC phones is expected on October 1st. [via Boy Genius Report]
