According to the latest Windows Mobile 7 findings by WMExperts, HTC Obsession could very well be the first Windows phone which will ship with Windows Mobile 7 come this fall. Microsoft may even show it off at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, where they are highly expected to unveil Windows Mobile 7 for the very first time.
The handset in question is said to be slated for October 2010 release, almost a year after HTC HD2 was originally released. HTC Obsession more or less looks like an upgraded version of HD2 with more on-board memory, and an upgraded camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities.
Full specs Of HTC Obsession are as follows.
Launching: October 2010 CPU: Qualcomm QSD8250; 1GHz Network: GSM HSDPA Device Size: 112 x 56 x 11.7 mm Memory: (RAM/ROM): 512MB/512MB Internal Storage: 4GB External Storage: MicroSD (up to 32GB) Screen Size/Type: 3.7-inch capacitive AMOLED “Multitouch Supported” Camera: 5.0 Megapixel AF with flash; HD 720p video@ 25fps Video Support: Windows Media Video (WMV), MPEG-4 (MP4/M4V) H.264, DVR-MS4 Audio Support: Windows Media Audio (WMA), Advanced Audio Coding (AAC-LC), FairPlay DRM, MP3 (.mp3) Battery: Removable 1230 mAh Talk Time: Up to 10 hours Standby Time: 240 hours Internet Use: 6 hours (3G), 7.5 hours (WiFi) Video Playback: 7 hours Audio Playback: 24 hours
While AMOLED display will be a welcome change, but screen size of 3.7’’ inches on Obsession may not be received too well by HD2 owners who are currently overwhelmed with their 4.1’’ inches screen on HD2.
We will have to wait and see whether this will indeed turn out to be the first Windows Mobile 7 powered phone at the Mobile World Congress in February of this year. [via WMpoweruser]
