HTC to increase focus on North American market

HTC Foreseer

According to Phone Scoop, HTC will start to offer its latest Windows Mobile devices to the US (no word on Canada though). Among the first will be the HTC Foreseer, a DVB-H TV phone that will work with the network being deployed by Modeo. The Foreseer is a quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 and a Texas Instruments 200MHz OMAP 850 processor. It comes with a landscape 2.2-inch QVGA screen, 128MB ROM and 64MB RAM, Bluetooth 1.2, miniUSB 2.0, a microSD slot and a 1.3MP camera.

The HTC Star Trek (also known as the i-mate Smartflip) will arrive in mid-2006 and will be followed by the Hermes (AKA MDA Vario II) UMTS and HSDPA-ready Windows Mobile Smartphone in the fourth quarter.

Pricing information will be released later.
