HTC Leo spotted in O2 catalog, has WM 6.5
The HTC Leo has shown up in UK wireless provider's upcoming catalogue, revealing it will be officially called HD2, at least in Europe. The phone is the first Windows Mobile device to use a capacitive touchscreen and multi-touch input, and is due for a release at O2 sometime in mid or late October. The catalog photo shows a standard Windows Mobile 6.5 interface as opposed to the expected TouchFLO 3D from HTC, though it's unclear if this is just O2's particular choice of image or an indication that its HD2 will go without TouchFLO.
The phone will be one of HTC's highest-end offerings, as it packs a strong 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU and a large 4.3-inch display. There is also a 5-megapixel camera, 320MB of RAM and most likely 3G network support, a GPS sensor and a Wi-Fi radio.
O2 has not responded to inquiries, and the October catalog this image was taken from has not yet been released. Pricing for the HD2 is still unknown. [via Engadget]
