Most of the secrets about the eagerly awaited HTC Leo saddled with Windows Mobile 6.5 are out already except for its release date and expected price. With its large size 4.3-inches multitouch screen and amazing specs, it looks like it is going to bulldoze all others devices in its path and is surely going to be a big hit. “Leo” being just a codename for the device, has been identified as HD2 on the Bluetooth menu and is expected to be launched before the turn of the year. The birth of Leo will bring HTC at par with iPhone multitouch technology and Apple’s sole dominance in this field will be challenged to a great extent. Based on the leaked info gathered from WMPoweruser and ai.rs blog, a comparison table of the specifications has been prepared of the two mobiles:
