HTC roadmap leaked?


It looks like the 2006 HTC roadmap has been leaked by the site (Warning: NSFW). The pictures of a Powerpoint slide deck first look at HTC’s logo and its evolution then at the move to naming new models using letters only (eg, TyTN). The rest of the slides cover the TyTN, MTeoR, Artemis, Excalibur, Melody, Oxygen and Trinity. The first two are now out in Europe. Pictures of the Excalibur leaked out earlier this month and there are had already been rumours about the Artemis, Oxygen and Melody (some details were quite wrong).

The Artemis will be powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 and a TI 200MHz OMAP 850 processor. It will come with a 2.8-inch QVGA screen, 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, quad-band GSM/EDGE/GPRS, Bluetooth, a 2MP camera, GPS and a microSD slot. It is expected in Q3 2006.

The HTC Melody is also powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 and the TI 200MHz OMAP 850 processor. Most specs are quite similar to that of the Artemis except that it will alos have 4GB of Flash memory and an FM tuner but no GPS. A Q4 2006 releasse is planned.

The HTC Oxygen will arrive in Q3 2006. It comes with Microsoft Windows Mobile 5 Smartphone, the 200MHz TI OMAP 850 processor, a smaller 2-inch 176×220 screen, 64MB RAM and 64MB ROM, quad-band GSM/EDGE/GPRS, Bluetooth, a 1.3MP camera and a microSD slot.

Lastly, the Trinity will also arrive in Q3. Powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 Phone Edition, it will be powered by a Samsung 400MHz processor and come with a 2.8-inch QVGA screen. It will come with HSPDA as well as quad-band GSM/EDGE/GPRS, 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, 2 cameras (2MP and a VGA for video telephony) as well as GPS. Unlike the others, it will come with a miniSD slot.

Screenshots of the specs of the Melody, Oxygen and Trinity can also be found on Gizmodo (which is SFW).
