HTC Trophy

HTC Snap

HTC’s H1 line up for T-Mobile is pretty uninspiring, except for the HTC Trophy, which would be HTC’s first Windows Mobile Professional device with a front-facing QWERTY keyboard.

The Windows Mobile 6.5 is set to sport a 3 inch VGA capacitive touch, Qualcomm 600 Mhz MSM7227 processor, massive 1400 mAh battery and still only a a svelte 11 mm thin form factor.  

The device will still also feature consumer features such as a 3.5 mm  headphone jack, FM radio and 5 megapixel camera.

On the business side it will have Straight talk lite, HTC’s new People software, Super Search and Business card scanner.

The device is the answer to many people’s prayers, who have been asking for a front facing QWERTY device with a large high resolution touch screen, and should find immediate popularity amongst Windows Mobile fans who have not bought into the iPhone back slab phenomena. As can be seen from the mock-up above, the smartphone is considerably narrower but taller than similar devices, but feature a much larger screen.

The HTC Trophy is set to arrive some time in May 2010.
