The latest document leak comes from Sprint and brings pictures of the carrier’s upcoming handsets for Q4 of 2007. Here we see the slew of smartphones that we expect from Sprint this Fall, including the rumors Palm Centro and Sprint HTC Touch (which, confusingly, is the HTC Vogue, which is the CDMA version of the HTC Touch – confused much?).
We’re expecting Sprint to drop the LG Rumor slider-phone on us sometime in Q4. The LG Rumor will be a dual keypad/keyboard hybrid, much like the HTC Libra S720. But, unlike the Libra S720, the LG Rumor will be a lower-end device – no 3G, no high-megapixel camera, no Windows Mobile 6.0 – and will feature a 1.3 megapixel camera, microSD card slot, Bluetooth, music player, and of course that QWERTY keyboard.
Sprint’s Palm Centro will also come onto the scene in Q4, packing a 1.3 megapixel camera and a slew of Sprint software – Sprint TV, Sprint Music Store, Sprint Mobile Email, Sprint Instant Messaging, as well as Versamail, Google Maps, and PocketTunes Deluxe media player.
And it looks like the Sprint HTC Touch is slated for a late-2007 launch. We can expect the Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional device to complement the TouchFLO interface with the same 400Mhz processor, 2.8 inch screen, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, microSD slot, and 2 MP shooter as the HTC Touch – but with EVDO Rev. A in place of EDGE.
The BlackBerry Pearl 2 (8130) is the last phone in the leaked lineup and will round out Sprint’s Fall offering with the expected 2 megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth with A2DP, microSD slot, and support for Sprint Music Store and Sprint TV.
We’re looking forward to Sprint’s smartphone lineup in the coming months. With the HTC Vogue, Palm Centro, and Pearl 2, we’re sure it’s going to be a hit with the young/hip set as well as the tech-head, WinMo6.0 fans out there.
