HTC Raphael pictures surface

The HTC Raphael is what happens when you take an HTC Touch Diamond and add a slide-out keyboard to it. New pictures and details of it have now surfaced when T-Mobile Germany announced three new phones.

The HTC Raphael will hit Europe as the T-Mobile MDA Vario IV by the end of the summer. As with the HTC Touch Diamond, it will come with tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and dual-band HSDPA connectivity, a VGA touchscreen display, 256MB ROM, integrated GPS, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, an FM radio, a front facing VGA camera and a 3.2MP camera. It is expected to be powered by a 528MHz Qualcomm processor and Windows Mobile 6.1 (no word on the TouchFLO 3D interface though).

For the curious, the other two devices unveiled were the MDA Compact IV, the T-Mobile variant of the HTC Touch Diamond, and the T-Mobile Ameo 16GB, its variant of the HTC Advantage X7501.
