After the blaze of speculative rumours covering the details of both the HTC Bravo and the Obsession, we come back down to earth - well, just a touch - with the news that HTC is revamping its current Snap mobile phone, turning it into a touchscreen handset that will be based upon Microsoft's latest operating system, Windows Mobile 6.5, and to be called the Trophy, according to the Phone Arena website.
Aimed squarely at the midrange market, a sometimes unfairly derided sector that many consumers occupy, the new Trophy will be of great interest to many prospective phone buyers as it will include a 3" touchscreen with a capacitive operation and HTC's own TouchFlo 3D interface. Based upon the Qualcomm MSM7227 600MHz processor, the phone will also include a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and 3G for fast data transfers, along with a 3.5mm headphone socket and a microSD slot for expandable internal memory.
No price, distribution or release information was mooted...and if HTC thinks we are going to add lots of related Trophy metaphors, "It's a winner!", "First past the post!" and "Head and shoulders above the rest!" then it's got another thing coming.
