HTC myTouch Slider hits the FCC or is it the HTC Tera?

Is this the MyTouch SlideAndroid handset or the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 HTC Tera? One thing is for sure: the HTC PB65100 is soon going to hit the street. The handset has passed all FCC testing this week. The HTC Tera (or HTC Touch Pro3?) and MyTouch Slide have nearly similar specs, the only differentiators being the screen (resistive/capacitive) and the OS (WM6.5.3/Android).

HTC Touch Pro3 to be launched this summer ? Probably the HTC Tera


 File this under the unverified rumor but according to some one on XDA-Devs HTC is planning to launch the HTC Touch Pro3 in time for the summer season. The device is said to be smaller than its predecessor which makes me believe that this may be the HTC Tera we have seen a couple of months ago during the HTC roadmap leak. The handset will be running Windows Mobile 6.5.X and feature low-res (wqvga) resistive touchscreen.

HTC 2010 handsets line-up leaked: HTC Passion/Bravo,Tera, Legend, Photon..

Holly Molly! HTC’s 2010 handset line up just leaked over at XDA Devs a few minutes ago!
Let’s start with what everybody’s been waiting for the HTC Passion/Dragon:

HTC’s hero model of Q1-Q2 of 2010 , a real flagship with exceptional specs and characteristics, will be named as “HTC Bravo”. Rumors wanted this device with loads of different names (Passion/Dragon) and specs, but below you will see its original fotos allong with up-to-now specs. Bravo supposedly will follow the same good recepie as happened with Leo (HD2) and we can say, that if HTC had something in mind about an Android version of Leo, then Bravo is the one.

Representative of the Performance (and not by chance ) category based on HTC’s categorization it has fantastic style and design, eqquiped with the sucessive killer Snapdragon QSD 8250 1GHz CPU (as in Leo), HD 720p Video caprure, 3.7″ WVGA AMOLED screen, 256RAM (guess it will be increased to 512Mb accoridng to my latest inside nfo) with 16GB MicroSD card in-box, and 1400mAh battery capacity and HTC Sence of course, is certainly what eveybody would like to own, considering that will b loaded with the latest Android OS possible at that time. HTC’s “killer phone” as they call it, will definately face on its way and will have to compete, Rachael X10i SE and time is left to tell what the results will bring to light And as HTC’s latest moto is about their new 2010 portfolio, i will inheritate and say, “I want it NOW” Arriving April 2010.

Nearly the same specs as the HTC HD2 but with an smaller AMOLED) screen and 720P encoding (looks like HTC is shafting HD2 owners by only enabeling it on the Bravo/Passion…)

Then we have 3 other android devices, the the HTC Salsa:

“Salsa” is a Blackkberry styled, Android, handset, with just 8.6mm thickness, absolutely stylish, slimmest QWERTY keypad, distinctive “Edge” design and great for social networking as it fully supports all well known Social Networking sites, Facebook, Twitter etc, while also supports IM capabilities and browsing firends photo albums via Flickr pre-installed app.Arriving June 2010.

The HTC Tide:

With “Tide”, user can njoy best of leading touch experience and a keypad. Like with Salsa, is great for social networking as it fully supports all well known Social Networking sites, Facebook, Twitter, Plurk etc, while also supports IM capabilities and browsing firends photo albums via Flickr pre-installed app. Loaded with Android OS. Arriving April 2010.

The HTC Buzz:

“Buzz” at first look, seems like it will be the ansestor of HTC Tattoo, as it offers the capabillity of covers change, for those who love changing their phones, by having multiple full different coloured covers. It’s and Android based has a huge 3.2″ sceen, 5MP Cam with Autofocus and Flash, awesome design and it’s designed for applications and applications sharing.Arriving May 2010.

The HTC Legend:

“Legend” is the ansestor of the most succsful Android device, along with “Magic”, the “HTC Hero”. Offers absolutely stylish look, covered with a metallic frame as you will see, slim with just 11.4mm, loaded with HTC Sense and a central bottom clickable Optical Mouse for easy navigation like with Magic and Hero and of course Android OS. Arriving March 2010.

Now it’s time for some Windows Mobile devices. Only 3 are planned to be launched in the first half of 2010 (compared to 5 Android devices).

The HTC Photon:

When i first took a closer look to “Photon” (without looking to its specs) i was shocked by its design and immediately thought that comparing to “Bravo” that will be HTC flagship device of 2010, as its almost the same with Leo with slight differences. Its a WM 6.5 device, 3.2″ HVGA screen, 256RAM, 5MP campera and eqquipped with Snapdragon MSM7227 600Hz CPU. As with “Bravo” it is expected to arrive on April 2010.

The HTC Trophy:

A month later, on May 2010, another WM 6.5 device, coded named as “Trophy”, will offer the opportunity of a touch phone with QWERT keypad, 3.0″ VGA screen, 5MP Camera, huge battery capacity, 1400mAh and nice design.

And finally the HTC Tera:

Last representative of the Productivity HTC category, we meet, the coded named device, “Tera”. It looks so alike to HTC Touch Pro2, thats it hard to find any differences. Slided-up full QWERTY keypad, loaded with WM 6.5 OS, 3.2MP Cam, 256RAM and 1300mAh, its a device which i don’t know if it has to show up something new, but will certainly b a medium consuming device.

It’s intersting to see that all three WinMo device are kinda low-end compared to the HTC HD2 (especially the screen resolutions) and don’t even meet the WM7 chassis 1 specs because of their lowres screen! Also, it seems like the HD2 will still be the highest speced device in HTC’s line up even compared to the HTC Bravo/Passion (if you excluded the fact that the Bravo’s screen is AMOLED). Now let’s see if HTC will finnaly enable 720P video encoding on the HD2 or shaft their users like they usually do…
