Hmmmm, has to be bought on their particular plan, a la iphone, no corporate email (exchange?), no video recording, sounding much less interesting by the second.

Big question for me is whether it can sync directly with Outlook? I don't want to have to goosync my calendar to Google before it updating on my phone.

The specs does sound disappointing, but then it's just a leak/rumored.

Not long to the PR... 1 hour and 30 mins to go!

So all I managed to get from that is that it works, a bit like everyone else's devices, but less so...

Are they hoping the open source nature of the OS will see 3rd party developers doing their work for them?

I don't know the specs look pretty good to me, according to the HTC Website. I know the HTC Touch HD is far better specced but it is also a lot more expensive! Admittedly I have yet to see the interface in use, but hopefully it might be the kick up the arse that Microsoft needs to improve Windows Mobile. Lets face it Exchange and office document support can be added and if TomTom or other nav companies sign up and create software that will be all most people need.

Operating System Android

Memory ROM: 256 MB

RAM: 192 MB

Display 3.2-inch TFT-LCD flat touch-sensitive screen with 320 x 480 (HVGA) resolution

Network HSDPA/WCDMA:

Europe: 2100 MHz

US:1700/2100 MHz

Up to 7.2 Mbps down-link (HSDPA) and 2 Mbps up-link (HSUPA) speeds

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE:

850/900/1800/1900 MHz

(Band frequency, HSUPA availability, and data speed are operator dependent.)

Device Control Trackball with Enter button

Pretty good, but not outstanding. The capacitive screen is a welcome addition...
