HTC Leo Phone: Goes to 1GHz

Engadget says that HTC’s Leo is fast becoming the company’s worst kept secret. The 4.3-inch, 800×480 display looks massive next to the 3.2-inch version found on HTC’s Touch Diamond2.

It’s expected to feature a capacitive multi-touch display with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm, a 5 Megapixel camera, GPS and MicroSD. It runs Windows Mobile 6.5.

Windows Mobile 6.5 is due Oct. 6, 2009. It will feature a new user interface and a richer browsing experience. In addition, Windows 6.5 phones will feature two new services: My Phone, to sync text messages, photos, video and contacts to the Web; and Windows Marketplace for Mobile.

AT&T is expected to launch the Tilt2, their version of the HTC Touch Pro2 (specs), next month. It’s already available from T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, but it’s a safe bet that AT&T’s Tilt 2 version will pack WinMo 6.5, says Boy Genius.

Meanwhile, Palm is saying goodbye to Windows Mobile Devices. They’re only going to develop webOS devices from now on, the company CEO says. In its release of first quarter results, the company noted that it shipped 823,000 smartphone units during the quarter.
