XDA China has posted a picture and details of the the HTC Prime, a new phone sporting a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard on the Prime looks to be a departure from the bulky tilting ones that we are used to seeing on other HTC phones. Instead, it appears to be a thinner, straight slider with oval buttons, rather than rectangular. Other features of the phone include:
- 3.7-inch WVGA touch screen with 480 x 800 resolution
- 512MB RAM
- 5MP camera with auto focus and LED flash
- Wi-fi and Bluetooth
No carrier information has been specified. There is no release date included in the write-up, but there is speculation that the Prime may be unveiled at CTIA.
