Look what it is... HTC's forthcoming successor to the HTC Excalibur (aka T-Mobile Dash / HTC S620)!

Packing UMTS / HSDPA, a 400MHz Samsung processor and WiFi... the Cavalier could quickly be heading to the top of the Smartphone tree! When I say quickly, don't expect to see this device until a few months into 2007 at the EARLIEST... but hey, it's something to look forward to :) Is that a forward facing camera for video calling I see in the top right? No JoggR? Perhaps there's a wheel on the right hand side... :D

I think it looks nicer than the Excalibur myself, sharper... and judging by how much i'm enjoying the HTC S620 at the moment, this could be a winner!

Looks like status LED's to me Paul..... :P

[EDIT: Though on second thoughts there are two status LED's on either side of the speaker.... so maybe it is! :D It's because the lens is square and not round i thought it was just LED's :)]

No, the status LEDs are by the speaker, looks like a tiny camera on the right.

Looks like kind of thin. I am more and more finding my Hermes too fat, and regret the "handiness" of my old Magician.

Time to ebay soon!

joggr to the right.


paul, i don't think the upper right part is a camera because it's too small. seems like it could be a light sensor instead.

I agree, it looks more like the keyboard backlight sensor to me.

As the herald has been the update to the wizard and is still EDGE/GPRS, I should imagine this will be EDGE/GPRS too.
Mind you, HTC did release the Mteor without a front facing camera....?

Yep, it is SP as it has home and back keys :)

Also - why is that camera button any more pushable than any other of HTC's handsets?

It was a slightly tounge-in-cheek comment :)

What i would like to see is an option to put scroll bars on the other side of the screen in PPC though...

Back on topic, looks like a potential Blackjack contender...

The Hermes is a bit left handed...l or at least as I right handed person, I feel the wheel is on the wrong side (the Blackjack feels much better with it on the right) :)
