HTC Athena Smartphone

Cellphone producer HTC's upcoming Athena phone will be designed for serious text messaging, according to details and photos leaked by BengalBoy. The large handset will have a comparatively large QWERTY keyboard that can be fully detached from the phone to save space. A 3.5-inch touchscreen allows dialing and other common tasks. Performance is stressed in the system as well, according to the site: a 400MHz Samsung CPU, 64MB of RAM, and an unusually large 256MB of ROM to store built-in software should ensure quick response times.

As is common with HTC's latest smartphones, the Athena will have a wide range of connnection options and will speak to Bluetooth as well as WiFi devices. A SD card slot is provided for added storage. No firm launch details have been given for the Athena, though a release is most likely early in 2007. A complete image is available after the jump.
