Rumored: HTC P6500 Sirius, HTC S420 Erato, HTC S730 Wings
The HTC lineup for 2007 will obviously continue to attract interest as new models continue to make waves throughout the PDA world. Rumors about their latest mobiles are now abundant and more info is available on the HTC Wings and the HTC Erato plus some info on the yet unknown HTC P6500 (HTC Sirius).
As GSMArena.com already wrote, the HTC family is obviously about to be expanded. Although no official information is yet known, leaked information at the http://pdadb.net/ revealed more about the new devices dubbed as HTC Sirius, HTC Wings and HTC Erato.
The real news is the info about the highly interesting HTC P6500 (HTC Sirius). The whopping 3.5" 65K TFT display may only make users feel sorry that it comes with a QVGA resolution only. Rest assured as the device is supposed to have quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus 3G and Wi-Fi and would be powered by a 400MHz Samsung processor. Running on the Windows Mobile 6 Professional OS, the HTC P6500 (HTC Sirius) would also be equipped with a 2 megapixel camera. The HTC P6500 (HTC Sirius) is expected in August 2007.
The other two devices are smartphones and many of you may already heard rumors about them. The HTC Erato is the more interesting one. Up until now even its code name has remained unknown. The device is to be released as HTC S420 and is supposed to be powered by a 400MHz Samsung processor and Windows Mobile 6 Standard. It should also come equipped with a 2.4" 65K colors TFT display with a QVGA resolution. The HTC S420 (HTC Erato) would have quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus 3G/HSDPA-enabled telephony. An FM radio, a microSD memory card slot, a 2 megapixel camera and the integrated Sirf Star III GPS receiver add nicely to the picture. The HTC S420 (HTC Erato) is expected in April 2007.
The HTC S730 (HTC Wings) would be the possible successor of the HTC S710 (HTC Vox). It would feature the same dual keypad design as the S710 but will be powered by the more powerful Samsung 400MHz processor and would again run on Windows Mobile 6 Standard. As far as connectivity is concerned it comes with quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support plus 3G and HSDPA and Wi-Fi. It would also boast a 2 megapixel camera and an integrated Sirf Star III GPS receiver. Basically the only thing that would separate it from being a fully-fledged PocketPC is the lack of toucscreen capability which is not a necessary bad thing since many users prefer to do without a stylus. The HTC S730 (HTC Wings) is expected in July 2007.

sirius looks ugly.though the big touchscreen is good the presentation and keys on the front could hav had a better look. perhaps the tytn is still the best of the htc handsets even after one n a half year.
