HTC LEO/Firestone to have capacitive screen ?

More HTC rumors are coming our way these day. About the HTC Leo/Firestone (it’s still not confirmed that the Leo = Firestone though) this time. Air.rs is claiming to have the specifications of this mystery device.

Quad-band GSM/EDGE connectivity
Dual-band HSDPA 900/2100 MHz
4.3″ WVGA (480 x 800) capacitive touch screen
320Mb of RAM + 512MB of ROM
Wi-Fi, GPS, A-GPS ,BT+EDR
Light and Proximity sensors & Accelerometer
5Mx autofocus camera with 2X LED flash
MicroSD card
3.5mm jack
1230 mAh battery
121 x 67 x 11 millimetres

Real or Fake ? You decide. For my part I’m having my doubts. If you remember a few months ago the following specs leaked : htcdevicespecs

The Firestone aka Star is/was supposed to have a 3,6″ screen and a SnapDragon chipset clocked @ 600Mhz. Those Leo specs look to be closer to the HTC Toth IMO. Other than that I know for a fact that HTC may be working on a capacitve WM6.5 device to be released this fall (this info came straight out of a Samsung rep I met more than a month ago). So the Leo and Firestone a 2 diffrent devices.
