    HTC T8290 Rumoured

    Paul over at MoDaCo has just posted an article on the new HTC T8290

    HTC T8290 HTC T8290 HTC T8290

    HTC T8290 HTC T8290

    My my, HTC do have their fingers in a lot of pies wink.gif
    Below are the first images of a device that appears to be called the ‘T8290’ and is packing WiMAX, destined for the Russian Yota WiMAX network.
    We can see the device features:
    – WinMo 6.1 Professional
    – 3.8" WVGA (800×480) screen
    – Inbuilt phone, WiMAX, Bluetooth and WiFi
    Amazingly the design seems to be even more minimalist that the Touch HD! smile.gif No deets on whether this packs the same 5 Megapixel camera of course, but there is a camera of some description on there. We’ll be digging around for more info and will update this post as and when – watch this space! smile.gif
    Given HTC’s recent announcement that the Touch HD will not be available stateside, could this give a hint as to why? Will we see the T8290 coming to Sprint’s ‘Xohm‘ network?

    Now I’m really not sure what this means but it does indeed look like an HTC device that has not been photo shopped. It always amazes me how these devices leek so commonly but I for one am glad they do and only wish that someone would leak something new to us more often.
