HTC Erato Specs

HTC is preparing a spiritual successor to the Cingular 3125, better known as the "Star Trek," according to leaked hardware details. Codenamed the Erato by the Taiwanese company, the new flip-phone will bring the much sought-after addition of 3G wireless through HSDPA -- notably, including support for the 850MHz band used in North America. The Erato will also see a major performance upgrade, receiving a much faster 400MHz processor (up from the 200MHz of the Cingular 3125), a sharper 2-megapixel camera at the back, and a front VGA camera. A slightly larger 2.4-inch screen and the inclusion of Windows Mobile 6 also help modernize the phone.

Release info and a complete image follow after the break.

Also part of the revelation was word that the handset will be introduced in April, following just seven months after the American introduction of the original. The launch pattern will likely follow previous history with an initial launch in Europe followed by North American introductions in coming months. [via PDAdb]
