When the FCC isn’t busy giving us sneak peeks at up-and-coming mobile phones destined for the US, we look to the Bluetooth SIG to give us a heads up on unannounced hardware. The latest piece of mobile kit to get an honorable mention on the Bluetooth SIG’s website is the as-yet unannounced HTC Cedar – presumably the same HTC Cedar that we saw allegedly leaked out with the rest of HTC’s 2009 lineup.
The apparent confirmation of an HTC Cedar handset lends even more credibility to the leak that uncovered HTC’s product pipeline for the current year. Confirmation of the HTC Sapphire 2.0 as the keyboard-less, Android-powered successor to the T-Mobile G1 left little doubt that the leaked lineup was legit, and this confirmation of the HTC Cedar puts the veritable lid on the issue.
The HTC Cedar looks like a rather unassuming QWERTY smartphone, but we’re going to withhold any judgment until we get more details on the handset. Look for HTC to show off at least a few of their upcoming handsets at Mobile World Congress!
