HTC 2006 Smartphones
HTC quickly developed a following in the smartphone market as a feature-laden alternative to Palm and other mainstays. It's for that reason many users now follow the company's future models closely: a new model for some users could easily be the ultimate phone. Thanks to a recent leak, these fans will have no trouble deciding what to buy this year: the entire 2006 HTC roadmap has surfaced on the Web. While details of the sought-after Excalibur phone were previously revealed, the new roadmap lists several new HTC phones on the horizon for the Fall and Winter. Many of them share features in common such as Bluetooth, EDGE, and WiFi, there are highlights. The Artemis (pictured, left) and Trinity (right) both feature built-in GPS for maps; the Melody in turn has 4 GB of flash memory and a music-friendly interface.
