HTC P4550 / Kaiser rebrands as TyTN II?

HTC are to call their long-awaited Kaiser device the ‘HTC TyTN II’. At least if you like to believe net rumours! It does seem likely though, and the source is apparently from an HTC certification request. It was to have been released as the ‘HTC P4550’, but since the media and punters alike were refering to it as the successor to the TyTn, it does seem to be a understandable change.

Since the TyTN was so successful for HTC, I’m sure they are also hoping for increased sales for their new mass market device.

The latest information on releases, is that the TyTN II will almost certainly be on Vodafone, and will probably be on Orange, T-Mobile and o2. It’s unclear at present as to whether it will be an SPV branded device on the Orange network.

HTC Kaiser (P4550 / HTC TyTN II) Latest Specification:

  • Windows Mobile 6 Professional
  • 2.8″ QVGA LCD Touchscreen
  • 256 MB ROM – 128MB RAM
  • Qualcomm 400MHz CPU
  • GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS800, UMTS850, UMTS1900, UMTS2100
  • 802.11b/g WiFi

  • 3.0 megapixel auto-focus camera
  • AGPS
  • USB 2.0

  • The last bullet is interesting. Contary to earlier reports, the TyTN II will support TouchFlo, but the rumour is that this will actually be a cut down version. The reason for this is down to the standard touch screen. The HTC Touch had a highly sensitive and specially strengthened screen to enable the advanced features. Currently, the TyTN II does not.

    EDIT: You can order the TyTN II now and get £10 off the purchase price. Details HERE.
