After months of silence, the HTC Prime and Ignite, a pair of Windows Phone 7 devices, have resurfaced at the Dutch website of popular retail chain ThePhoneHouse where they are listed as "Coming soon". The HTC Prime packs a slide-out QWERTY, while the HTC Ignite is a standard bar.
We first saw the two when a Chinese site uncovered their renders along with the HTC Sensation, which at the time was still known as "Pyramid". The Sensation went official a while ago, but the HTC Prime and Ignite have remained undercover.
Both phones are listed as "Coming soon" on ThePhoneHouse.nl
Unless the ThePhoneHouse site jumped the gun way too early, HTC should be announcing these devices soon. Unfortunately, the site gave us nothing on specs - all we have is the initially reported specs.
They put the HTC Prime in the mid-range with a 3.7" WVGA and a 5MP camera with LED flash. RAM is reportedly 512MB but there was nothing on the CPU. And of course, there's the four row slide-out QWERTY.
A new look at the HTC Ignite and HTC Prime
The HTC Ignite seemed oddly underpowered with an 800MHz CPU (the Microsoft-set minimum is 1GHz) and 512MB RAM. We also learned the Ignite had a 5MP snapper and HSDPA-enabled 3G (7.2Mbps/2Mbps). Presumably, both phones run the latest Windows Phone 7 Mango.
The ThePhoneHouse offers nothing to confirm or refute these specs - but you can sign up for notifications when new info is available.
