HTC Unveils Four New Smartphones

Hubba, hubba.

Hmmmmn – where have we seen these before? Oh yes, it was here, here and not forgetting my O2 scoop here.

Yet today HTC officially let these cats escape their already considerably ripped bags to provide us with the P3300 (Artemis), P3600 (Trinity) S310 (Oxygen) and S620 (Excalibur). Unfortunately the Melody, the most exciting of the bunch, was curiously absent.

Running through the official spec sheets we already knew most of the goodies but here are the fleshed out versions:

”’S310”’ (far left): Quad band, 2in 176 x 220 LCD, 64MB ROM, 64MB RAM, 1.3MP camera, audio and video playback, MiniSD, Bluetooth and 108 x 47 x 18.5mm.

”’P3300”’ (middle left): Quad band, GPS, 2.8in 230k touchscreen LCD, 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, 2MP camera, audio and video playback, FM tuner, MicroSD slot, WiFi, Bluetooth and 111.5 x 62.5 x 12.8mm.

”’S620”’ (middle right): Quad band, 2.4in 320 x 240 LCD, 1.3MP camera, identical memory and connectivity apart from no radio tuner, 111.5 x 62.5 x 12.8mm.

”’P3600”’ (far right): Identical to P3300 except with HSDPA, a second VGA camera for video calls, a miniSD slot, no inbuilt GPS (though this could be installed later) and 108 x 58.2 x 18.4mm.

Being HTC all models come with the Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system.

The S310 and P3600 will be released in September with the other two following in October. Expect to see them appear under a variety of network names as well as HTC’s own brand. Now if only that Melody would turn up…
