The Xperia X1 officially has some serious competition from HTC if this Translation of newsMobile [via Engadget] is accurate. Sure as heck looks to be accurate, as these images and specs confirm the Specs for the HTC Diamond and HTC Touch Pro we told you about last weekend. In case you forgot:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional
  • Qualcomm MSM 7201A @ 528MHz
  • 256MB ROM / 128MB RAM
  • 7.2MB HSDPA / HSUPA (rev A EVDO for Sprint versions)
  • 2.8“ VGA screen
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR
  • eGPS
  • 3.1MP Camera with flash
  • Forward facing camera
  • 4GB internal flash storage (Diamond only) - Samsung MoviNAND
  • TV out (Raphael only)
  • Orientation sensor (a-la-iPhone)
  • FM Radio
  • microSD expansion
  • 900mAh battery (!!!)
  • Diamond: 51x99x10.7mm with sliding keyboard
  • Raphael (Touch Pro): 51x99x17mm

We'll find out for sure on Monday whether or not this is what HTC has up their sleeve. Even folks who aren't fans of slider devices need to stand up and take note: it doesn't get much better than this.
