HTC Eternity Windows Phone outed, 1.5GHz beast!

htc-eternity-leak

If the HTC Eternity is a sign of things to come for future HTC or Windows Phone 7 devices, it’s really time to get pumped. This new Windows Phone handset retains HTC’s design cues, but it is much larger and more powerful than what we’ve seen in a Windows Phone device before. The Eternity boasts a 4.7-inch touchscreen display, which might get a little unwieldy for some (the Samsung Infuse 4G was already on the large side, even for my big hands). But it’s also powered by a 1.5GHz processor, which ought to make Mango processes smooth and seamless.

Additionally, it has an 8MP camera, 16GB of internal storage, DLNA capabilities, 720p video recording capabilities and a 1,650mAh battery. Couple these huge hardware specs, which undoubtedly look great on paper, with what we’ve seen with the Mango update for Windows Phone 7, and we might have a real winner here. I can’t recall the last time I’ve gotten this excited over a Windows Phone–probably never–but the hardware and software pairing here seem hard to resist. And being a photography nut, if the camera is half decent at 8MP, there’s really no stopping me.

It’s hard not to be bullish about this, especially since it hasn’t even been officially announced or confirmed, but with all the cookie-cutter Android devices and boring Windows Phone handsets out there, this beast is what we need to spark real interest in a new platform for us spec junkies. Hell, even the specs alone might not mean much if it weren’t for the fact that we know that Mango is going to be pretty hot.

    I will be buying 2 of these if they come to Sprint.  Everyone I know who has seen my Arrive say there next phone will be a Windows Phone.

    BTW Verizon killed the Kin with it’s plan pricing.

    Gardner say Windows Phone will be the #2 smart phone in 2013.  They have much more cred that you.

    My Arrive rocks it…and as already stated, now that I know about this I have phone envy.  Window Phone 7 is outstanding from an OS perspective.

    Call me crazy but I doubt it has 4.7 inch screen. Look at the proportions and back, it seems to look similar to the Inspire/Desire HD.
