HTC Snap coming to T-Mobile without Inner Circle

HTC Snap firmware leaked

The HTC Snap smartphone, which was being shown off at the CTIA expo last week, will be coming to T-Mobile and is internally known as Captain to T-Mobile users, an examination of the firmware reveals, according to a recent WMExperts report. Also, the handset's model number is S522, and the shipping firmware does not contain code for the Inner Circle feature. Inner Circle would essentially be an integrated application that would filter out e-mails from a list of pre-selected "favorite" contacts, bringing them to the top of the list in a user's inbox.

What's being touted as a new feature is the ability to send an audio postcard to contacts. Users can take a photo they captured, add a border to it and record up to a one-minute voice clip to send with it as part of an e-mail or MMS message.

Other specs on the entry-level smartphone with QWERTY keyboard include a 2.4-inch 320x240 display, a Wi-Fi module, GPS sensor, 2-megapixel camera and Bluetooth 2.0. Windows Mobile 6.1 runs on the device's 528MHz Qualcomm CPU. The battery is rated to provide 8.5 hours of talk time on GSM or 5 hours on a CDMA version of the phone.
