Although we've known about this device for quite some time now, the HTC T9199 aka the Oboe is close to a release in China as it was just "officially" announced. The device is actually quite nice, even if it is still running WM6.5.3. Think HD2 but dual CDMA and GSM. No date or price has been announced but we imagine it is imminent.
Rest of the specs, to refresh are as follows:
- 1Ghz Snapdragon
- 512MB RAM/512 ROM
- 5MP camera
- BT 2.1, Wifi, aGPS, 3.5mm headset, etc.
- 800x480 4.3" screen
It actually seems like quite a nice phone, albeit 6 months too late for the U.S. market. Still, for China, it may do well, even with Windows Phone 7 on the horizon there.
