Details of the HTC Omega have spilled out onto the net.
Apparently this upcoming smartphone from HTC will have Windows Phone 7 Mango ready to roll from the box when it launches later this year.
It will also have a 3.8 inch display with a WVGA resolution, an 8 megapixel camera (capable of 720p recording), 1.5GHz processor and 16GB of memory.
Yes, we did say a 1.5GHz processor, although this won’t be a dual-core effort apparently, so not quite as chunky as it at first sounds. The usual bluetooth, GPS, wi-fi and 3G support will also be on board.
However, apart from the OS, Mango, which will delivered to other WP7 handsets when it goes live anyway, there’s not a huge amount to get excited about here. Still, it seems a solid enough handset, and the price point could, of course, be a revelation (perhaps).
The Mango update to WP7 brings with it a cluster of new features to the Windows phone, some 500 in fact. These include deeper integration of social networking, a central inbox which can deal with multiple email addresses, voice-to-text (and vice versa) plus a mobile version of IE9.
HTC’s previous WP7 handsets consist of the Mozart and the Trophy, although the company hasn’t had nearly as much success with these as it has with the big selling Android models such as the Desire.
It’s not alone. In fact, no one has had much success with WP7, a situation that Microsoft has paid Nokia a billion smackers to hopefully change.
