HTC Maple May Show CTIA

HTC's Maple could not only get an early debut but could become ubiquitous in the US, a leak from the Economic Daily News says. The newspaper believes the Windows Mobile smartphone will be launched at next month's CTIA phone expo and that HTC is discussing bringing the phone to at least four unnamed US carriers. Such a deal would likely mean both CDMA and GSM versions of the phone available in the country.

Maple is known to be HTC's attempt at providing a mid-range smartphone in the vein of the BlackBerry Curve and will have a full QWERTY keyboard as well as a trackball for navigation. It will also have a 2-megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch display, though whether GSM versions will get 3G is still unclear. One previous rumor has the phone shipping in May.

    The Maple is the follower of the Cavalier and that’s about all that we officially know. The handset is said to sport a user-friendlier keyboard, a trackball and an “Inner Circle” feature which will improve the way you communicate with your closest friends depending on the time of day and day of the week. We’ll be back to check this phone when official details will be available. Until then you have time to figure out if you want an HTC Windows Mobile QWERTY handset like the Maple or you’re more of a Berry kind of person.
