HTC phone details emerge

The online retailer CTI Miami has obtained information on a variety of upcoming HTC phones, which may be of particular interest to subscribers on CDMA networks. A notable example is the Vogue, which is a CDMA version of the Touch, often compared with the Apple iPhone for its large touchscreen and similar interface gestures. Also being converted is the Excalibur, which will become an upgraded model called the Iris (S640), complete with a two-megapixel camera, 256MB of ROM and assisted GPS.

The Kaiser now has more firm specifications behind it: these include WiFi, a 2.8-inch screen, quad-band GSM/EDGE, and HSDPA broadband up to 3.6Mbps. A VGA camera for video calls is confirmed, but it appears the still camera will be either two or three megapixels.

The Nike has similar specifications, but firms up the still camera (two megapixels) and is actually a vertical numberpad slider rather than a horizontal QWERTY one. The Volans has a fixed numberpad and a QWERTY slide-out, while the Polaris touts a 3.5-inch display, full GPS functionality, and a three-megapixel still camera (though no video). The same applies to the Sedna, which does however boost HSDPA to 7.2Mbps. Lastly, the X9500 appears to be another name for the Shift.

Only the Polaris has been given a firm release date, that being October of this year.
