HTC Leo capacitive touch evident

A new demo on Friday supported notions that the HTC Leo will have the first-ever capacitive touchscreen and multi-touch input on a Windows Mobile device. The leak from proves this by showing the phone responding to gestures that would either require active pressure on a normal Windows Mobile phone or wouldn't have worked at all, such as quickly flicking through HTC's TouchFLO interface or pinching to zoom into and out of photos.

The imagery also shows the handset being very responsive, a product of the phone's very high-performance 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and that HTC's tentative name for the phone is the Pro.Three, suggesting that it might be considered a sequel to earlier phones. It's already assumed to be one of the highest-end phones in HTC's future lineup with its 4.3-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and 320MB of RAM along with assumed 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi support.

The Leo doesn't have a release date but will have to wait until at least Windows Mobile 6.5's debut on October 6th and is more likely to arrive later given the prototype form of what has appeared today.
