HTC Firestone image emerges: early rendering or clever Photoshop?

A new image of an HTC-branded Windows Mobile handset has surfaced. The source of the image claims it is a rendering of the HTC Firestone, a handset that was included in HTC’s leaked 2009 lineup, and adds the following specifications:

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA
  • Windows Mobile 6.5
  • 3.6-inch WVGA touchscreen transflective TFT display, 65536 colors (boo)
  • 600Mhz Qualcomm 8250 processor
  • 256MB RAM and 512 MB ROM
  • MicroSD expansion
  • Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR
  • 802.11b/g
  • AGPS
  • G Sensor
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • 8 megapixel camera
  • Target launch: August 2009

Unfortunately, the reliability of the source is unknown and the rendering looks so “2008″ with the older arrow-emblazoned HTC logo and the glossy Touch Diamond design. The mock up is also missing the zoom bar, a key cosmetic feature seen on HTC’s 2009 Touch Diamond2 and Touch Pro2. Hopefully, this is just an old rendering and not a Photoshop job as we would love to see this handset debut later this summer.
