Since Catherine got the HTC HD2 I've been hoping that HTC would release a keyboard equipped phone in the Touch Pro series that sported the 1Ghz processor, and the capacitive screen would be a nice too, and of course Touch Flo/Sense that supported landscape mode.
The good news is HTC's product roadmap for the first half of next year has leaked. The bad news is, there's no sign of any such phone. There are three phones under their productivity category all of which are powered by Windows Mobile 6.5.
The Photon, which seems to be keyboard-less, but still under productivity?
This seems to be a mini version of the HD2, it sports a 600Mhz processor, 3.2 inch HVGA capacitive screen with 256MB RAM.
There's also the Trophy, which has a similar form factor to most BlackBerrys, it has a 3 inch VGA screen also capacitive, with another 600Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM.
Then there's the Tera which seems to have the same form factor as the Touch Pro 2, only it sports a disappointing 3 inch WQVGA screen and the same 600Mhz processor and 256MB of RAM.
Looks like I'll be waiting until at least the second half of 2010. At least it shows how future-proof the HD2 is, only one other phone will be using the 1Ghz Snapdragon processor in the next six months and that will be the Bravo, whose main feature seems to be 720p video recording, but even that doesn't come close to the massive 4.3 inch screen on the HD2.
